Unified Threat Management (UTM) outsourced to Tata Communications provides 24/7/365 cyber protection

This African financial services group has established itself as one of the region’s most innovative retail banks. Today, it provides a wide range of services to individuals, small-to-medium-sized businesses, and large corporate clients in several countries across the continent.


Transforming from an indigenous bank to a regional player, this African banking group reviewed its IT infrastructure. One of the first focus areas was security, as cyberthreats on the continent had escalated over the previous five years.


The bank’s network provider recommended Tata Communications. The resulting managed unified threat management (UTM) service features end-to-end perimeter security to enforce the bank’s security policies.


Working with Tata Communications has substantially enhanced network security. The African banking group, its customers and their data are now far better protected against cyberthreats, while outsourcing has allowed the bank’s IT team to focus on other important matters.

“There have been no security breaches since we adopted the UTM service, and we know Tata Communications will help keep us ahead of the game. That gives us enormous peace of mind.”
