SASE and SD-WAN transformation for national retail

Client profile

Australian retail company with over 120 offices and stores in Asia.

The challenge

The client envisions a cloud-based architecture for network and security, using an internet primary underlay to replace the existing single-vendor MPLS, and implementing SASE nodes for remote access. The challenge is balancing the implementation of a Cloud-first approach while prioritising security.

Client needs

  • Ensuring robust security measures are in place to protect data and applications in the cloud.

  • Maintaining consistent network performance and reliability during and after the transition.

  • Training IT staff on new technologies and processes to bridge any skill gaps.

  • Ensuring a smooth user experience and effective communication with stakeholders throughout the process.

Our responsibilities

Representing a technology provider, Cavell Group worked closely with the client to detail the target design and migration plans by:

  • Leading vendor technical sales efforts and deliver successful production POCs

  • Architecting and designing a single vendor SASE

  • Designing SSE security including Secure Web Gateway, Cloud Access Security Broker and ZTNA VPN

The outcome

  • Successful transition from an MPLS managed service and on-prem security to a flexible cloud-based network and security architecture.

  • Significant savings with WAN cost reduction (mainly from MPLS to internet underlay transition) while increasing capacity and maintaining service levels.

  • Migration to a single vendor SASE with unified management and single pane of glass for Network operated by a small team, who were trained and capable of managing 120+ SD-WAN sites and over 1000 remote users.
