Recognizing the complexity of IT security, Yakult embraced the 'Zero-trust' principle. After discussions with IPknowledge, this led to the adoption of a new network architecture for enhanced security, as highlighted by Maaike:
“The principle (never trust, always verify) appealed to us. A completely new network architecture was the best choice for us to be ready for the future. This turned out to be easier than expected.”
Simplifying the international network at Yakult served a dual purpose. It not only created a more secure environment by enhancing oversight and control but also facilitated adaptability to changing business needs and global dynamics.
Yakult Europe opted for CATO SASE SD-WAN to meet the vital requirements of a healthy international network. Maaike emphasized,
“Yakult Europe has chosen CATO SASE SD-WAN because this can prevent problems at multiple layers of IT. Yakult is convinced that prevention is better than cure.”
Selecting a reliable partner is crucial, and IPknowledge proved to be an excellent fit. The collaboration during the preliminary phase exceeded expectations, laying a solid foundation for a long-term and positive partnership. As stated,
“Our IT people were initially skeptical about a cloud network, but during the preliminary investigation, existing requirements and all new wishes and requirements turned out to be possible.”
Less Worry, More Trust with IPknowledge
We are happy with IPknowledge and the easy transition. It is easy for us and we have fewer worries as an IT department. They think along with us, they are always there for us and we can rely on them.
