Atos is the global leader in digital transformation with 111 000 employees in 71 countries.

"We have an excellent experience working with Cloudi-Fi. Their cutting-edge cloud-based Wi-Fi solution enables us to deliver convenient and secure connectivity to our guests and employees more cost-effectively. The deployment is fast, simple, and all cloud-based without needing local infrastructure. Their flexibility to accommodate different local compliance regulations allows us to manage our global offices easily. Their customer success team is very supportive and responsive. Cloudi-Fi is a great partner to work with!"
Atos selected Cloudi-Fi as their guest Wi-Fi solution to support cloud transformation and optimize costs. Cloudi-Fi is 100% cloud-based and fits seamlessly into Versa Networks SD-WAN architecture. The legacy solution was challenging to install and maintain due to the need for dedicated hardware and LAN layer configuration. Cloudi-Fi simplifies IT operations and enables routing to the nearest data centers without local configuration. Cloudi-Fi's partnership with Verizon facilitated easy integration into Atos' environment. Atos can establish local breakout and route guest traffic with Cloudi-Fi and reduce broadband usage, resulting in a more cost-effective solution. The administration interface securely manages guest traffic and adjusts bandwidth as needed across multiple sites.
Atos has placed security at the heart of its digital transformation. Untrusted networks usually connect various kinds of untrusted devices and users: daily guests, consultants, and employees with Bring Your Own Devices. Atos was looking for a complete and secure service.
Cloudi-Fi supports Atos in their Zero Trust Network Access strategy by allowing them to enforce differentiated Internet security policies based on identity. With Cloudi-Fi, Atos benefits from the latest version of TLS and enhances the security of the whole guest network. Moreover, the Zscaler integration within Cloudi-Fi provides Atos an unmatched solution to implement security policies at the access for a Zero Trust strategy.
With Cloudi-Fi's reliable captive portal, Atos offers diverse authentication modes (sponsorship and corporate directory - WAC SSO), making the onboarding process more user-friendly and convenient for guests. Making visitors more autonomous is also a time-saving option for employees who don’t need to use vouchers anymore to grant guest Internet access.
