11:11 Systems, a managed infrastructure solutions provider, has launched 11:11 Connectivity Solutions, a global managed connectivity service aimed at solving the connectivity and bandwidth challenges facing global organizations today. The service is powered by Fortinet Secure SD-WAN technology and backed by “decades of” connectivity and network experience.
Organizations can now turn to 11:11 as a one-stop-shop for cloud, connectivity and security solutions. The company claims it may result in lower costs, reduced redundancy and risk, and improved visibility of clients’ end-to-end infrastructure. 11:11 Connectivity Solutions, which includes managed SD-WAN and Managed Security Next Generation Firewall, would ensure secured and dynamic network services, managed connectivity services and professional services.
“With our managed connectivity service, backed by Fortinet’s industry-leading secure SD-WAN solution, organizations do not need deep networking expertise to solve connectivity and bandwidth challenges,” said Justin Giardina, CTO of 11:11 Systems. “They can rest assured that we are optimizing the network architecture for efficiency, resiliency and built-in security, so their IT resources can focus on other areas.”

The new service would solve many pain points, including struggles with low latency access to applications and a lack of integrated security. Many IT departments also struggle with not having the specific skills and expertise to ensure the infrastructure stays up and running and the data is protected.
Driven by a converged networking and security approach and powered by a single operating system, Fortinet Secure SD-WAN technology would provide a number of benefits for enterprise customers. According to an independent study conducted by Forrester Consulting, the solution has the ability to support large enterprises by delivering 300% ROI over three years and payback in eight months, along with a reduction of network disruptions and increased productivity for deployment teams.
11:11 Connectivity Solutions are custom-designed and optimized for an organization’s exact needs and can be delivered to physical or virtual firewalls running on-premises or via cloud infrastructure. The Managed Security Next Generation Firewall service would deliver connectivity and security to the perimeter of the network. The fully managed service provides customers with a “turnkey” firewall security solution.
Currently, the offerings are available in North America and EMEA with plans to expand to Australia in the coming months. The 11:11 network and security operations teams provide management and monitoring of the appliance 24x7x365, available as Basic or Advanced managed services, with an SD-WAN managed service option.
