Kemin Industries Replaces 60-Site Worldwide MPLS Network with the global managed SD-WAN services

With the adoption of the cloud and frustrations with costs and headaches of the telco bundle, more and more global companies are turning to global secure access service edge (SASE) services as an alternative. Case in point is Kemin Industries. The ingredient manufacturer made the strategic decision to replace its 60-site MPLS network.

“Before the expiration of our WAN contract in September 2018, we evaluated if we were still on the right track with MPLS in terms of price and technology,” says Nik Meeus, Worldwide IT Technical Manager at Kemin Industries. “Our provider had grown so big that the collaboration did not run as smooth as we would like in terms of administration, deployment, and support. Also, the cost of the lines was relatively high compared to the available bandwidth.”

Another important factor was their fast-growing adoption of cloud solutions and applications such as Microsoft Office 365. “Most of our subsidiaries had only one single internet connection. This posed a risk in terms of application availability and continuity, so we wanted to have redundant connections to the cloud,” he says.

The company turned to Videns IT Services, a leading network-independent service provider of managed SD-WAN solutions for help. The experts at Videns recommended Cato, the first SASE solution to converges SD-WAN and network security capabilities into a global, cloud-native platform.
