CMC Networks connects Cerba Lancet Africa
CMC Networks, a data connectivity provider, has partnered with Cerba Lancet Africa, a clinical pathology and medical diagnosis company, to enable digital health innovation across key African markets.
CMC Networks is providing Cerba Lancet with a suite of solutions, which includes SD-WAN, Microsoft Azure Peering Service (MAPS), and zero-trust security.
CMC Networks claims that its dedicated Internet access IP solution allows Cerba Lancet Africa to use MAPS to manage and monitor its decentralised workforce, which is spread across South Africa, Nigeria, and Kenya.
According to the company, CMC Networks is supplying Cerba Lancet Africa with ‘a fully managed application-centric network’.
"Digital transformation is here to stay and will continue to play a critical role in improving the healthcare industry and ensuring enterprise growth,” said Theophile Doutriaux, Group Operations manager at Cerba Lancet Africa
CMC Networks says the solution supports a software-defined perimeter, which uses identities and context to impose policies to users and devices with least-privileged access across Cerba Lancet Africa's network.
It adds: "The zero-trust architecture boosts security across the network with policies that can be used to evaluate and determine access to network services, such as time of day or whether the device is connecting from a secure or open Wi-Fi connection."
