Software-Defined Wide Area Network for Financial Institutions

As financial services shift from being offered through brick-and-mortar locations to cloud, SD-WAN offers a future-proof infrastructure.

CBTS works with multiple financial organizations, including Fortune 500 clients with affiliates spread across the country. CBTS offers best-in-breed engineering resources to support these clients’ need to future-proof their networks and build a secure infrastructure that will support a transition to a hybrid cloud model that provides the necessary flexibility to compete in this competitive space.

Business Challenge

Financial institutions are embracing digital strategies to serve their mobile customer base and compete with FinTech startups, while simultaneously navigating their way through a maze of regulatory mandates and security demands. Customers increasingly put a premium on efficient, satisfying mobile banking experiences. In order to meet this demand, financial institutions must future-proof their IT infrastructure to deliver secure, cloud-based solutions that will support the ongoing shift from a brick-and-mortar business model to a flexible digital model.

CBTS Solution

VMware NSX® SD-WAN by VeloCloud™ is the right tool for financial organizations to meet their needs for bandwidth, support applications in a hybrid cloud environment, and partner with enterprise-class cybersecurity partners to create a shield around the network regardless of location type, connectivity type, or connectivity purpose. SD-WAN will allow financial organizations to build a stable foundation to grow their digital footprint, meet their customers’ evolving expectations, and facilitate mission-critical business objectives.

Implementation and Results
