Time: 1:10 – 1:30pm
Location: Main Conference Space
Presenters: Rob Gillan, Chief Technology Officer, SimplePay Group and Angelo Comazzetto, Technical Director Cloud Services, Riverbed
Attendees of this session will learn how SimplePay Group Pty Ltd (SimplePay), a leading global payment processing services company, is using Riverbed SteelConnect as the backbone of a software-defined infrastructure to deliver the agility, security and flexibility required to scale its business globally. As SimplePay expanded to serve new customers across a range of industries and geographies, it became clear that its existing IT systems and networking infrastructure wouldn’t be able to keep up with the needs of a fast-growing, increasingly distributed operation. They needed a new network solution to provide security, business agility and simple management, while still allowing them to leverage their existing Amazon Web Services (AWS) cloud environment.
SimplePay deployed Riverbed SteelConnect, a revolutionary SD-WAN solution that automates cloud connectivity for hybrid cloud environments and allows organizations to create a single, software-defined network spanning hybrid WANs, cloud networks, and branch LAN/WLANs with a centralized cloud-centric management workflow, application-based orchestration, and integrated security. In this session, attendees will see how SimplePay leveraged Riverbed for a transformative approach to manage the unified network, unlike any other solution in the market.
