A leading international bank operating across the Asia-Pacific, Western Europe and North America selected Epsilon to simplify how it connects its regional office footprint directly to the leading cloud service providers (CSP). The bank leveraged Epsilon’s Multi-Service Port offering to rapidly deliver new applications and services with a comprehensive end-to-end solution.
Planning to reach up to 5 million digital customers in the Southeast Asian market, the bank has been investing in new technology and digital solutions to make banking simpler, smarter and safer.

Epsilon’s secure Cloud Connect solution delivered via its Multi-Service Port gave the bank a flexible networking foundation to support their cloud-based business applications.

Flexible Network for the Future of Banking
The bank recognised the need for direct, secure cloud connectivity to ensure the consistent performance of its cloud-based business applications. It wanted direct connectivity to multiple CSPs and the freedom to scale the service while having end-to-end support and management of the network. Ultimately, the goal is to build a foundation for creating new digital services and experiences for their customers.
