Stolt-Nielsen deploys fully integrated Orange SASE solution to optimize global connectivity and security for hybrid workforce

  • Orange SASE Advanced reduces complexity and provides greater scalability, agility, visibility, and network control

Stolt-Nielsen, a global expert in bulk liquid logistics and sustainable land-based aquaculture, has chosen Orange Business to provide a Secure Access Service Edge (SASE) solution. It combines SD-WAN connectivity with global Security Service Edge (SSE) to securely support the company’s global, hybrid workforce and drive business growth.

Stolt-Nielsen has a diverse business portfolio, including the world’s largest fleet of chemical tankers, terminals for the safe storage and handling of bulk liquids, and bulk door-to-door chemical delivery logistics. It prides itself on being a trailblazer in adopting technology in its field.

The multinational enterprise was an early adopter of SD-WAN and is now moving to the next generation of advanced solutions. It was looking to replace a set up of internet providers and network solutions with one integrated service to optimize performance and security for its 2,500 hybrid users globally.

Phased SASE deployment
Stolt-Nielsen wanted a trusted partner to help migrate from its former infrastructure and develop a phased SASE strategy. It chose Orange as the integrator, impressed by its global network capabilities, security expertise, and broad portfolio of services.

The fully managed Orange SASE Advanced offering, created for Stolt-Nielsen in partnership with Netskope, provides enhanced global connectivity and consistent internet security on and off the network. With Netskope’s SSE infrastructure located across more than 70 regions globally, plugging it into the Orange network ensures data security can be managed centrally without affecting business productivity.

“As part of our transformation, we needed to define a secure, centralized, future-proofed digital infrastructure to support our business growth and innovation. We chose Orange because of its ability to provide seamless, reliable global connectivity with the highest security standards delivered via SASE,” explains Peter Koenders, CIO at Stolt-Nielsen.

“Stolt-Nielsen will reap the benefits of Orange SASE Advanced with a secure, flexible infrastructure built on our Evolution Platform and secured by Orange Cyberdefense. This innovative approach will help to drive the company’s secure digital transformation plans, advancing operational efficiency and propelling digital business growth,” adds Nemo Verbist, Senior Vice President, Europe, at Orange Business.
