Boursorama stays loyal to NTT as it transforms its WAN with NTT's next-generation SD-WAN

An intelligent, agile and future-proof network for France's leading online bank London, UK – 6 December 2019 – NTT Ltd. today announced a continuation of the partnership established 15 years ago between Boursorama, the company behind the Boursorama.com financial information portal and Boursorama Banque, France's leading online bank and NTT Communications Corporation (NTT Com). Following the launch of NTT Ltd. on 1 July 2019, which saw 28 brands within the NTT Group come together, including NTT Com, NTT Ltd. has replaced Boursorama's MPLS-WAN with a next-generation SD-WAN based on Silver Peak technology, supported by managed and cloud-mode services under a four year contract. Boursorama Banque acquires 2,000 customers every day and regularly launches new services. The bank needed a high-performance WAN able to optimize the customer experience on web and mobile platforms. It also wanted to protect sensitive banking data and improve visibility of network usage.

To achieve these objectives, NTT's approach focuses on services and technology. The SD-WAN provides secure, fiber-based interconnection of Boursorama Banque's sites in France and Europe, with end-to-end encryption. Delivered as a fully managed solution, the SD-WAN helps to simplify the bank's control management strategy. A single interface and 24/7 orchestration of the network save time for the bank's IT teams, allowing them to deliver new projects faster and focus on meeting business goals.

Boursorama Banque benefits from:

  • Streaming network analytics, allowing real-time monitoring of network health, bandwidth usage and data flows for better management of network performance and workload.
  • A tenfold increase in bandwidth, which facilitates timely synchronization of the bank's customer databases in compliance with regulatory requirements.
  • On-demand access to virtualized (cloud-mode) services such as application acceleration and intrusion prevention.

“I am delighted Boursorama entrust their SD-WAN transformation to NTT. I am confident that through our solution, we will build a better and more agile network that will enable future infrastructure and business projects” says Frederic Tak-Kit Ong, Southern Europe Country Manager at NTT.

"The NTT SD-WAN delivers the performance we need to ensure an outstanding customer experience on any device" says Eric Azoulay, Projects & Applications Manager at Boursorama. "The solution will support our ambitions to serve 3 million customers by 2021 and bring new services to market faster than ever before."

The SD-WAN can also meet any future requirements the bank may have, such as integrating 4G or 5G or connecting to public cloud platforms via NTT Direct Cloud Connect.
