Within Yakult, all choices are based on the principles of the founding father Dr. Shirota. The aim is to work towards a healthy society and that prevention is better than cure. This also applies to the technical choices made at Yakult.
We are talking about Yakult Europe’s choice for CATO SASE SD-WAN, complemented by Internet lines, monitoring and the Managed Detection and Response (MDR) service. Deployed and managed by IPknowledge from Amsterdam.

Casestudy Yakult – Prevention is better than cure.
Goal 1: Security
IT security plays on multiple layers. The network layer is perhaps the most complex part, which is difficult to get to grips with and maintain.
The ‘Zero-trust’ principle is therefore an important starting point. This is to prevent unnoticed holes that have not yet been closed. Because hackers know how to find these holes, we assume that. The ‘Zero-trust’ principle is therefore an important starting point.
“The principle (never trust, always verify) appealed to us. After discussions with IPknowledge, we realized that a completely new network architecture was the best choice for us to be ready for the future. This turned out to be easier than expected.”
Goal 2. Simplification
There were two main reasons for Yakult to simplify the international network. First of all, simplification brings a more secure network environment. The result is more overview and control so that possible calamities are noticed and resolved earlier. Simplification also makes it easier for IT to grow with business needs and changes in the world.
Conditions for choosing Cato SASE SD-WAN
What requirements should the total solution for a healthy international network meet? Maaike gives a clear answer to this question: “The network is the backbone of your organization. It must always be secure and available with good performance and be able to change flexibly with the new needs of the organization and the security challenges in the world. In addition, more and more applications are migrating to the cloud and people are working from home more often. Employees must be able to work safely, reliably, and quickly everywhere.”
