SimplePay Group Selects Riverbed as its Software-defined Networking Partner to Scale its Business Globally
SimplePay opened its doors in Sydney in 2012, quickly establishing itself as a leading payment processing company in Australia. The company’s core value proposition is its market-leading ability to securely process large volumes of transactions across markets and currencies on a single platform. SimplePay solutions address data integrity, privacy and security policies and cover more payment methods than any other provider.
The systems were working fine for us locally in Australia, but I recognized early on that they couldn’t be easily scaled across the globe or easily managed from a reliability and sustainability perspective. We didn’t want to have to drop IT staff in to every new location.
