When Toyota wanted to transform the IT systems for their Retailer Groups they needed consistent, secure and managed connectivity for 79 Toyota Retailers nationwide, so they could more easily transact car sales. ToyotaGB needed improved security controls and a more responsive network partner, so that each dealership could more easily access their own data. By deploying our WAN service they achieved better network outcomes across the board.
Client Objectives & Requirements:
ToyotaGB’s goal was to provide its new retailer group with fast, secure and reliable connectivity for 79 different sites. The car manufacturer’s specific requirements included:
Resilient Active/Standby design to enable an always on service, to reduce the risk of data loss or downtime
Defined retailer connectivity options to allow scope for scalable bandwidth expansion
Greater security controls to implement individual franchise network separation - ensuring only secure access is given to ToyotaGB IT resources
Secure inbound access for its off-shore dealer network via a centralised managed firewall VPN solution.
