Major Northern European Bank
Northern European Bank’s Transformation to Agile and Responsive Cloud-based Application and Service Delivery
“Before the new data center came online, it would typically take a number of weeks to launch each new service and the process could be very frustrating. Now, we can be operational in a matter of hours. This not only opens up new business opportunities, but greatly increases the productivity of our expanding development group.”
– The bank’s Global Head of Network Technology spokesperson
For more than a century, this company has been a major force in banking, helping millions of customers, both individual and commercial, to realize their ambitions – locally as well as internationally.
To maintain growth at the forefront of such a competitive domain for so long has required continual innovation and transformation. Central to the bank’s digital transformation was the creation of a new cloud-based data center to replace the legacy mainframe systems. In selecting the technological components for the new data center infrastructure, there were three essential criteria: a robust and open API, performance and price.
The bank chose the Fortinet Security Fabric approach, including FortiGate Next Generation Firewalls (NGFWs) with Management, Analytics, Automation through Fabric Management Center (FortiManager, FortiAnalyzer) and authentication provided through FortiAuthenticator. Key to this decision was the availability of a pre-built security fabric connector for the chosen SDN framework of switches and infrastructure controller.
