Tech Bytes are short, sponsored conversations on the latest technologies and products. Today’s episode is sponsored by Silver Peak, and we talk to their customer First Bank.
Our guest is Marc Ashworth, VP – Information Security. We discuss how the bank was able to replace MPLS with lower-cost broadband connections, simplify its WAN edge by removing routers at each branch, and meet security requirements by moving to SD-WAN.
Ashworth shares his deployment experiences with swapping out MPLS with either broadband or cable modems at every branch.
We also discuss key features for First Bank, including WAN acceleration capabilities in Silver Peak, and encryption between branch devices and the bank’s headquarters.
