MidSouth Bank serves Louisiana and Texas with 49 branches and nearly two billion dollars in assets. When Daniel Hereford joined the bank as SVP and CIO, the organization was transitioning to a hybrid cloud model and needed more flexibility from its WAN to support this transformation.
In this PacketPushers podcast, we talk with Hereford about how he migrated off MPLS and onto DIA and broadband to enable new levels of application visibility and performance for the bank’s mission-critical applications such as voice and banking systems, while also cutting costs.
Hereford discusses the ongoing rollout, how he’s retiring routers in favor of Silver Peak’s EdgeConnect™ devices, and steps he’s taking to ensure security and privacy meet regulatory requirements.
