Newbury, Berkshire, UK – June 2017
Kongsberg has strengthened its worldwide automotive sector leadership by adding a single-sign-on (SSO) solution to its F5 Networks Access Policy Manager (APM) platform and created seamless access to corporate applications for its global workforce.
Choosing iCyber-Security Group of the UK as its consulting partner, Kongsberg has utilised the F5 Networks Application Delivery Controller (ADC) to deploy virtual ADCs using BIG-IP Local Traffic Manager (LTM) and APM modules in a complex VMware environment. SSO was required to ensure the secure and painless access to applications from anywhere, at anytime and on any device.
Kongsberg Automotive, headquartered in Switzerland, has 30 production facilities worldwide and employs 10,000 employees in 18 countries. It creates over one billion Euros in annual revenues by supplying automotive products that make the driving experience safer, more comfortable and sustainable.
Paul Bayfield, Infrastructure Services Group Manager, Kongsberg Corporate, comments: “iCyber-Security has vast expertise across the entire F5 stack and we benefited from their knowledge of virtual data centre, powered by VMware ESX. They also provided scoping of the LTM and APM solution, migration planning, onsite delivery and knowledge transfer to hit the project’s delivery targets on time and within budget.
“The benefits to the business are outstanding as employees around the world can now access critical corporate applications 24/7. The increase in efficiency has been tangible and it has brought teams based across 18 different countries much closer together.”
Marco Essomba, CTO and Chairman of iCyber-Security Group, says:” This was a complicated project delivered in very tight timescales. We also provided a high level of bespoke training to Kongsberg, especially around the customer interface and their sophisticated technical needs.”
