Telesystem has launched its SD-WAN service to the mass market, with a focus on security.
With the ever-growing demand to reduce complexity and control costs, Telesystem recognized that their business customers needed an efficient and effective way to virtualize multiple components of a branch office while deploying advanced security measures.
“We place a high priority on our value proposition in the security space,” said Warren Reyburn, chief revenue officer of Telesystem. “For over eight years we have offered edge device and cloud-based service options to manage security and threat considerations for our end users, addressing everything from content management, to WAN link redundancy and managed VPN services. In 2017, we launched our always-on Secure Internet as a Service to great response and success. I view SD WAN with Security as yet another contributing member of the overall security portfolio. We spent an extensive amount of time conducting due diligence and put this offering through it’s paces in our labs and in the field, to ensure it meets the demands of our end user community.”
The company said that it wanted to take the time in product development to get the details right.
“Early on, we knew we wouldn’t be first to the market, but we didn’t see that as a detriment,” said Mike Bilik, CMO at Telesystem. “Instead, our perspective was to focus on developing a product that we could confidently launch, without sacrificing our user experience. Our business customers expect that. They know and trust us because we provide solid customer support on all of our services. We don’t launch a product until it goes through our stringent development process, and that includes ensuring that everyone, front office through back office, can support an emerging technology like SD-WAN. It’s a lot more work, but we see it as a quality that makes Telesystem unique.”
