Resiliency and security are the top concerns for every business, large and small. A day does not go by without another example of why companies must be proactive in upgrading, testing and reinforcing their security infrastructure and incidence avoidance and response activities. According to Small Business Trends, 43 percent of cyber-attacks target small business, and 60 percent of small companies go out of business within six months of being attacked. Enough said. Security is a must, and any network infrastructure changes you make must have security features, capabilities and a track record of success. Ecessa SD-WAN provides multiple layers of security to enhance and improve your existing security strategy.

Regulated industries, like banking or healthcare, must adhere to strict security guidelines in order to protect critical and sensitive data, often leveraging private connections and extra layers of encryption to secure communications, transactions, or data replication for disaster recovery requirements. When Stearns Bank needed additional bandwidth to support high-speed access and superior security measures, they worked with Ecessa and other partners to craft a technology solution that ensured safeguards and satisfied the banking industry’s high standard for security and compliance. The Ecessa team helped determine why Stearns Bank wasn’t getting the speed they needed while providing additional bandwidth and security along the way.
