Fujitsu Philippines selects NetFoundry’s Zero Trust Networking Platform
Fujitsu Philippines, Inc., a global information technology (IT) systems integrator and solutions provider, has worked with NetFoundry Inc., the leader in zero trust networking, to help businesses in the country address key networking challenges resulting from the acceleration of digital transformation caused by the current global health crisis.
With the sudden changes brought by the pandemic, the alliance between Fujitsu and NetFoundry enables businesses to respond effectively to the disruptions and achieve organizational resilience often referred to as Business Continuity Management (BCM).
Amid the pandemic, organizations need to provide secure, high quality networking everywhere, including over broadband Internet access, such that knowledge workers can be productive in new flexible working arrangements, while IT organizations need solutions they can roll out and manage efficiently and effectively. The work-from-anywhere VPN replacement solutions, formulated by the two companies, helps organizations with their business continuity, continuing “business-as-usual” operations”. The solution helps organizations move to an overall Secure Access Service Edge (SASE) framework, which matches network transformation to digital transformation.
The solutions means organizations can now have zero trust network access to workplace tools, software applications, and resources from any location over any connection. IT organizations meanwhile uses the cloud-orchestrated platform to simplify management and improve productivity. In addition, the solution provides excellent resiliency and reliability, addressing key needs around business processes, workforce productivity, customer service, supply chain, and logistics.
