Verizon Business has been selected for the second time by Bertelsmann, the media, services and education company to transform its global network infrastructure; becoming one of the company’s global network transformation partners.
Verizon will deploy a Network-as-a-Service (NaaS) solution, which focuses on a globally managed Software Defined-WAN (SD-WAN) network underpinned by virtualized security functions, across Bertelsmann’s operations in the Americas as well as subsidiaries across the APAC and EMEA regions.
Headquartered in Germany, Bertelsmann is one of the world’s largest media, services and education companies operating in about 50 countries around the world.
Reliability, security, stability as well as innovation were high priorities on Bertelsmann’s agenda when re-selecting its network partner; as was Verizon’s proven track record as one of Bertelsmann’s partners during its first generation migration journey starting 2016.
The next generation SD-WAN network has security built into its core. Verizon Advanced SASE provides a universally distributed, identity-centric networking and security platform that ensures Bertelsmann’s end users and devices, across all locations are securely connected.
What Network as a Service is and why it matters Verizon Business’s network as a service (NaaS) is an on-demand solution utilizing the latest connectivity, network and security technologies. The on-demand offering takes multiple technologies, and delivers a single solution to the customer to enable their digital transformation.
