Prisma SD-WAN Simplifies a Complex and Costly Network

To reduce network complexity, improve the quality of service, and support continued growth, Yancey Bros. sought out a partner that could provide low-cost connectivity and the reliability its remote offices required. Several partners and companies recommended the autonomous Palo Alto Networks Prisma® SD-WAN solution, which uses global intelligence to deliver performance and security service-level agreements (SLAs) for all applications over any type of wide-area network (WAN). It provides application policies aligned to business intent as well as direct access to multi-cloud and DevOps frameworks to deliver unparalleled productivity gains and cost savings compared to legacy SD-WAN alternatives. Companies like Yancey Bros. leverage Prisma SD-WAN to gain cloud-scale economics for the branch with the freedom to use any WA

About The Customer

Since 1914, Georgia-based Yancey Bros. Co.—the oldest Caterpillar® dealer in the US—has supplied customers in construction, roadbuilding, mining, agriculture, and other industries with quality diesel engine products, parts, and services. Today, the fast-growing company has 1,500 employees at more than 30 remote sites, and it’s crucial that every office has a secure, high-performing network and reliable voice connectivity. There are no technical employees at the remote sites, so it’s paramount that the centralized team of 12, responsible for ensuring remote site performance, has real-time visibility into network traffic.

The Solution

Easy Implementation and Management

Implementation was completed in a few weeks, and after one branch was complete and the template was built, the Yancey Bros. team could easily replicate the process across the remaining 30 branches. Now, Yancey Bros. Co. is able to work with three cable providers and three major telcos. Seidner’s team manages all branches more easily, and if a line goes down, business does not stop. In the first year with Prisma SD-WAN, Yancey Bros. Co. realized more than US$150,000 in savings as well as considerable increases in uptime, network visibility, and flexibility. As a result of this initial success, Seidner has plans to further engage Palo Alto Networks and its cloud-based security ecosystem for other business applications at Yancey Bros.
