Orange Business Services has bagged a 5-year hybrid network and security deal from Henkel, a company based in Dusseldorf, Germany.

The connectivity deal is expected to meet the company’s need for secure connectivity and Internet access for remote branch offices to support its growth plans.

The hybrid network from Orange Business Services covers 355 locations in North and South America, Central Europe, Central Eastern Europe, Middle East and Africa. The security services support more than 42,000 Henkel users. This is extended by a Web Security Cloud Service. The overall IT service management solution is based on ServiceNow.

The hybrid network combines multiple technologies to meet the speed, security and geographic needs of Henkel. It allows the company to segment application traffic onto different networks, depending on latency, bandwidth, geographic reach, security and quality-of-service needs.

This provides optimal performance and fits well into Henkel’s solution for WAN optimization. In addition, Business VPN Internet allows Henkel to cost-effectively manage internet traffic growth, which is being driven by the rising use of cloud and real-time applications.

The combined solution provides visibility and dynamic control over application performance and security with centrally-based network intelligence. End users can connected to their applications, wherever they may reside, with appropriate performance levels.

“Seamless global communications with outstanding security capabilities are vital for us. Orange Business Services’ customized approach meets all of our requirements,” said Uwe Wirtz, head of Service Delivery IT, Integrated Business Solutions (IBS), Henkel.
