An Binh Bank (ABBANK) is one of the leading banks in Vietnam. It provides retail banking services to more than 1 million customers nationwide, with more than 165 branches in 34 cities. With industry trends and customer preferences toward digital banking, the bank put security at the top of its priorities for digital innovation. Implementing the bank’s new security objectives with multiprotocol label switching (MPLS) networks would have been overly costly and difficult to manage. ABBANK determined that a Fortinet Secure software-defined wide-area network (SD-WAN) architecture would give it greater flexibility, both to incorporate the various security features it needed and to accommodate its multiple vendor technologies. At the same time, it sought increased operational efficiency, easier management, cost savings, and better performance.
FortiGate Next-Generation Firewalls at all locations have secure SD-WAN functionality built in to enable the bank to dynamically distribute traffic across multiple WAN links and provide secure and cost-efficient branch connectivity. The bank’s team centrally manages all of the Fortinet devices from a single console. This reduces complexity and saves time and effort. ABBANK also relies on FortiAnalyzer to generate relevant reports that provide complete visibility of the entire attack surface and help it proactively identify and remediate threats. With Fortinet devices protecting the internal network, the WAN, and the branch offices, ABBANK has greatly enhanced its network security without sacrificing performance.
