25 Unique Companies - One Global SASE Experience

The Challenge

Sika has always maintained the highest standards for network performance, reliability, and above all, cybersecurity. When Sika experienced rapid growth through acquisitions, they knew integrating the new companies would lower those standards. Especially since it wasn’t just one or two companies – it was over 25 new acquisitions, each with unique networks. Sika’s existing infrastructure wasn’t up to the task. Integration efforts might lead to inconsistent performance, cybersecurity complexity, and runaway costs. It would also take time and an exorbitant amount of IT resources.
