Pan-African ICT service provider SEACOM is expanding to bring its software-defined wide area networking (SD-WAN) services to Kenyan businesses, offering reduced connectivity costs, increased security, agility and local support to customers.
The launch is part of SEACOM’s plan to enable Digital Transformation for enterprises in the East African country. The addition of managed SD-WAN to SEACOM’s services is great news for Kenyan businesses. With the increased global adoption of cloud applications, mobile workforces and voice and video communications becoming the new norm, traditional networks have been placed under significant pressure to meet increasing demands.
SD-WAN allows businesses to transform their business networks into smart, intelligent and cloud-ready networks. It simplifies the management and operation of an enterprise’s networks by using centralised software to control the connections and services between data centres, computers and cloud-based servers.
Tonny Tugee, Managing Director, SEACOM East and North East Africa, said: “If you want to create more resilient branch networking operations, dynamically adjust to changing conditions and empower business transformation and business continuity, SD-WAN can help.”
For businesses digitising their operations, network security is another growing concern. Cyberattacks are becoming more widespread and advanced, but upgrading hardware-based firewalls across various branches can easily become unmanageable and costly.Click below to share this article
