When the International Federation of Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies needed aid for their network, they turned to our Mission Control SOC and NOC engineers and SASE+.
Nearly everybody recognizes the symbol and respects the work done by the International Federation of Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies and its affiliates like the American Red Cross. They are a non-profit humanitarian organization that provides emergency assistance, disaster relief, and preparedness education – everywhere to anyone.
The IFRC operates in nearly every country and often in less than ideal conditions. As the needs for their services grew, so did the costs and demands on the IT team to keep their network running. Instead of focusing on new projects, they spent all their time and resources managing security and network operations. IFRC knew they needed a trusted partner to take over day-to-day operations so their IT specialists could get back to what they did best – improving the humanitarian services they provide.
Our Open Systems’ Mission Control provided the aid IFRC needed. We implemented SASE+ to simplify and streamline operations, lower connectivity costs, and add a layer of redundancy. Cybersecurity was implemented where needed to remove any security gaps, and day-to-day operations moved to our Mission Control engineers. IFRC network quality and accessibility requirements are fulfilled, costs are predictable, and their IT team is back on track, improving the services they provide. IFRC now has a better network to give aid to people across the world when it’s needed most.
