The customer is a major French bank operating in nearly 70 countries, with a strong presence across the African continent. For more than 20 years, Sonema has provided support for the customer’s company network in Africa. The customer’s partnership with Sonema started with the exploitation of a satellite network linking almost 50 sites across 14 countries, and since then the offer has grown to include other services including terrestrial connectivity (MPLS/Internet Access), security services and network optimisation.
The customer had noticed lengthy delays when receiving email, despite the implementation of new firewall rules blocking spam. After carrying out an audit of his incoming emails, Sonema installed their Mail Protection Service with Sandbox option, which eliminated roughly 80% of unwanted network traffic on the customer’s Internet access.
The client has been experiencing significant growth in his activity thanks to the diversification of his customer base and the development of a national network of agencies. This expansion required a structured application migration and called for a network evolution. The solution suggested by Sonema allowed the client to carry out this migration in the best possible conditions despite problems faced during the migration phase.
