Dialog Enterprise, the corporate ICT solutions arm of Dialog Axiata PLC, helped complete the digital transformation initiative of the David Pieris Group of Companies (DPGC) by successfully completing the deployment of its Secure Software-Defined Wide Area Networking (SD-WAN).
DPGC entrusted Dialog Enterprise–the only Fortinet-managed security service ISP provider in Sri Lanka–with the responsibility of deploying and managing the overall connectivity requirements of the Group’s 79 branch offices. With a mandate to enable direct internet access with multiple broadband connections to all offices, along with secure cloud adaptation and link redundancy, DPGC adopted the Dialog secure SD-WAN solution.
This enabled more efficient use of bandwidth and high-performance levels for critical applications without compromising information security and customer operations. Dialog Enterprise swiftly deployed and integrated the Dialog secure SD-WAN solution with the DPGC’s existing network, adding critical layers of security to boost network protection, while utilising application-wise traffic prioritisation to optimise user experience and manage bandwidth. The result: Direct internet access from all branch offices without compromising security, link redundancy for ‘always-on’ connectivity at a low cost, maximised utilisation of all available connectivity options, secure access to cloud applications, and a better user experience with application-aware routing.
Speaking of the partnership, Navin Pieris, Group Chief Officer – Dialog Enterprise, Dialog Axiata PLC, said,“We are honoured to be a contributor to the digital transformation journey of the David Pieris Group of Companies. As their technology partner, we are pleased to enable them to provide unparalleled service offerings. The SD-WAN solution we implemented provides an optimal outcome on the simplified management of the Group’s network, cloud connectivity and security with integrated threat protection and secure traffic across broadband internet and into the cloud.”
Chamilka Ambagahawatta, Chairman/ MD-D P Infotech (Pvt) Ltd, the IT arm of the David Pieris Group of Companies stated, “The David Pieris Group of Companies has an extensive island-wide branch network, as well as a significant mobile workforce that works from the field. To provide a seamless flow of services and information, we need to ensure that our people can connect to systems safely and without encountering obstacles. We are happy to adopt the Dialog secure SD-WAN solution managed by Dialog Enterprise, as adopting this solution was part of our cloud strategy.”
