BDO Canada LLP (BDO)

BDO is using Riverbed SteelFusion as a key element of its transformation to a more agile IT environment.
Designers are discussing related to upcoming network architecture.


  • Support firm’s M&A strategy
  • Revamp local office IT infrastructure to improve data security, ensure business continuity, and reduce need for IT presence on-site


  • New offices integrated quickly into the organization
  • Business continuity even when local offices experience local disasters
  • Less IT time spent on travel to local offices; more time for strategic projects
  • Enhanced data security at the local office level


With 3,500 employees, BDO is one of Canada’s leading providers of professional services to clients. It is part of the BDO Global network, which is the fifth-largest accounting network in the world.

Among BDO’s 125+ offices, there are some with as few as two employees and others with more than 200. Office locations range from major urban centers (Toronto, Calgary, Montreal, Vancouver, etc.) to rural communities from coast to coast. The firm has a data center in Toronto that houses its business-critical software applications. Local offices are connected to the data center by an MPLS wide-area network (WAN).



We deploy SteelFusion from templates and can be up and running in about half an hour.

Employees can just VPN from home. For our team, it takes less than five minutes to give them access to all of their data as if they were right there in the office, enhancing our business continuity.
