As companies continue to pivot users from branch offices to home offices, many are tasked with providing a seamless and secure platform for connecting a now fully remote global workforce to applications and services. One company that has successfully made this change is Gerresheimer AG, a leading global manufacturer of specialty glass and plastic products for use in the pharmaceutical and healthcare industries. Gerresheimer is a critical supplier in the fight against COVID-19.
Gerresheimer has long been a Silver Peak® SD-WAN customer, and in 2017 they rearchitected their global WAN to increase performance, provide mission-critical availability, and shift toward a cloud-first strategy. Over time, as the company has grown and its network and applications have evolved, new demands have been placed on the network. Along the way, the company has leveraged its Silver Peak Unity EdgeConnect™ SD-WAN to support its cloud-first initiatives. Most recently, they began to migrate from on-premises perimeter firewalls to cloud-delivered security, introducing Zscaler Internet Access (ZIA) to provide a best-of-breed security solution that’s fully unified with the Silver Peak SD-WAN.
