Securing the Global 
Financial Industry

Learn how one of the world's largest financial organizations uses CommandLink's network and managed security solutions to tackle security risks and multi-country compliance demands.

Customer Profile

U.S. based global financial services organization with 1,000 branches and total assets exceeding $300 billion with 50,000 employees worldwide. Each of the 1,000 sites offer diverse personal, business and commercial financial services that utilize unique applications hosted within multiple data centers across the globe and the cloud.

Legacy Technology

All locations are connected with single or dual low-speed MPLS circuit with low-bandwidth LTE backup and no direct Internet access. All branch locations deployed separate edge infrastructure for additional security and segmentation of internal vs. external assets and traffic. The business is also requiring new site installations as they expand into new markets.

Nuts & Bolts to Success

After thorough research and consultation, the team agreed that software defined WAN (SD-WAN) was the best technological solution. 

The business determined that SD-WAN would improve their secure site-to-site connectivity, efficiently increase overall bandwidth while enabling active/active WAN circuits and simplify worldwide WAN and branch management through a single-pane-of-glass management and policy framework


Securing and protecting the business is challenging enough when faced with the increasing threat of zero-day attacks and the impact of those potential breaches. This was further complicated by a complex legacy infrastructure unable to provide a consistent approach to configuration compliance and audit across the entire WAN. The existing infrastructure required a manual per site and per device approach to view or deploy any change to configuration, hardening or policies due to threats, vulnerabilities or simple maintenance. Additionally, the recent deployment of new business applications and collaboration services (like Skype for Business) were suffering from poor user and customer experience due to insufficient bandwidth and traditional centralized internet access at each branch.
