New Zealand-based engineering firm Beca has signed American communications company AT&T to provide its virtual private network (VPN) services. The service will be used to connect 11 offices in Asia-Pacific to Beca’s 10 sites in New Zealand, which the company says will help its engineers and consultants collaborate on complex projects.
“AT&T helps us to connect our employees, to serve our clients better and most importantly to set our course for strong growth, high performance and further success as a truly great international business,” says Robin Johansen, CIO of Beca.
AT&T will also deploy its network security and management services for Beca’s cloud and premise-based firewalls.
In February, Beca announced it standardised its IT infrastructure to use the same Brocade equipment in its Auckland headquarters and overseas.
Beca was established in 1918 and has worked on the Sky Tower, Wellington Airport’s “Rock” terminal building, and several overseas projects including Gandaria City in Jakarta, Indonesia.
Beca is number 52 in the MIS100 2011, the annual report on the biggest ICT using organisations in New Zealand.
