The Business Challenge
At one point, SECOM Trust Systems experienced an incident where one of their Amazon Web Services (AWS)-connected end users suffered downtime when both their main and backup internet VPN circuits went dark due to internet failure. The incident resulted in significant disruption to their business and spurred SECOM to find more reliable and stable connectivity.
Colt submitted a proposal including a comparison of dedicated AWS connectivity services versus other carriers. SECOM’s decision to select Colt’s proposal was based on ① Colt’s wealth of experience in offering stable and reliable network services to financial companies and ② Colt’s low pricing. With Colt Dedicated Cloud Access as a main circuit and the legacy internet VPN as backup for redundancy, SECOM now had a high-quality, cost-controlled solution. 100Mbps private connectivity provided high security, stability, and eliminated internet-based problems of the past. Additionally, the switch to Colt was a seamless experience and SECOM also expressed a high level of satisfaction with throughput.
SECOM hopes to strengthen its partnership with Colt by proposing Colt connectivity services to its end users and collaborate with Colt on security, which is a primary focal point for SECOM with regards to offering added value to its solutions.
With Colt, we can now offer high-quality, low-priced private connectivity to AWS for our end users. With a wealth of experience serving the finance industry, Colt offers stable and reliable connectivity, and our customers are quite satisfied. In recent years, in step with the rising demand for cloud services, Colt has earned the trust of customers and become an indispensable business partner.Kei Iwashita, Manager, Solution Sales Division, SECOM Trust Systems Co., Ltd.
