Fortinet has closed the acquisition of Meru Networks, viewed as a market leader in intelligent Wi-Fi networking.

With the close of this acquisition, Fortinet expands on its secure wireless vision and enterprise growth focus, broadening the company’s solutions portfolio, and expands its opportunity to address the US$5 billion global enterprise Wi-Fi market with integrated and intelligent secure wireless solutions.

“To truly protect against all possible attack vectors, we are continuing to expand our market-leading end-to-end security platform to provide customers with the visibility and continuous threat protection they need - from the data centre, to the cloud to the end-point,” says Ken Xie, founder, chairman and CEO, Fortinet.

“We expect the acquisition of Meru to help us deliver new solutions and services to help enterprises of all sizes deploy, manage, and secure wired and wireless networks in a mobile era.”

For Xie, the addition of Meru’s Wi-Fi solutions to the Fortinet portfolio extends the delivery of a secure, uninterrupted user experience in environments requiring high capacity load and a high-density of wireless users, such as enterprise, education, healthcare, and hospitality.

Going forward, Xie says Fortinet and Meru customers will also benefit from the company offering channel partners a broader solutions portfolio to take to market.
