Oldcastle Infrastructure selects Masergy SD-WAN

Oldcastle Infrastructure continues to advance intelligent manufacturing while driving growth with Masergy’s managed services.

Oldcastle Infrastructure has selected Masergy’s Managed SD-WAN with Threat Monitoring and Response to drive innovation and growth through improved network service. As the leading provider of building materials, products and services for infrastructure projects, Oldcastle puts data and the network at the centre of every building process. With Masergy Managed SD-WAN, the company will enhance their digital transformation strategy with a highly secure, high-availability network that includes 24/7 monitoring and response.

“As we enter the next phase of our digital transformation, we needed a network and cloud platform that could help us increase bandwidth and build a high-availability network while improving our ability to manage costs and enhance security,” said John Coombs, chief information officer, Oldcastle Infrastructure. “We also knew a managed services model was the best way to meet our needs. The Masergy SD-WAN was the right solution due to their high-availability software-defined network and the 24/7 monitoring and management of both the network and the built-in firewalls.”

Supporting each of Oldcastle’s 85 locations with reliable network service, the Masergy Managed SD-WAN solution serves the unique requirements of each site through multiple circuits that mix and match private access, direct internet access, and broadband access. This redundancy delivers more bandwidth and top-quality service for cloud applications at reduced costs. Plus, the next-gen firewalls and managed detection and response services from Masergy’s certified security analysts enable Oldcastle’s IT team to focus on revenue generating initiatives.

“Our software-defined network was designed with leading-edge companies like Oldcastle Infrastructure in mind, companies that are continually looking for the next edge in their digital transformation journey,” said Chris MacFarland, Chairman and CEO, Masergy. “We’re delighted to partner with Oldcastle, and support their need for a high-quality and secure solution in a multi-cloud enterprise.”
