Confectionary manufacturer Cloetta has chosen to partner up with Interoute to help make the move to a cloud-based infrastructure, including implementing Microsoft 365 app and to help it manage its global mobile working drive.

Cloetta chose Interoute's Cloud Connect, which optimises application data flows between local office IT and the head office private cloud, plus public cloud if required.

The platform has been implemented Cloetta’s 26 sites across Europe, each integrated into the existing VPN, which means it takes full advantage of the company's local internet network without breaking the bank.

“We are a bold company and we require a provider as forward thinking as us, which is why we work with Interoute," Magnus Nilsson, Operations Manager at Cloetta, said.

"Interoute Cloud Connect helps reduce costs, is fast, flexible and gives us the best of both worlds: a secure network with QoS as well as accelerated, secure local access to the open internet and applications in the cloud."

Cloetta employs more than 2,500 employees worldwide, making a solid and secure mobile working and cloud-based apps environment for everyone to use essential, no matter where they work.

To aid this, Interoute's Cloud Connect boasts a built-in firewall for extra security, while prioritising application traffic via network acceleration software and dynamic path selection to ensure the user experience is as efficient as possible.

“Cloetta is extremely successful at acquiring and merging regional confectionery brands," Mark Lewis, Interoute VP of communications and connectivity, added.

"However, its increasingly mobile workforce was struggling to interact with its digital systems via Microsoft 365, because of unpredictable local internet. Interoute Cloud Connect improved the performance of Microsoft 365 by optimising local internet breakout and direct access to Cloetta’s core business applications in the Interoute cloud.”
