Expanded Enterprise Security & Network Management
BOWEN has always been about putting people first. Since 1974, they’ve been a trusted leader to some of Canada’s largest organizations, SMEs, and startups—filling temporary and permanent placements, providing flexible payroll solutions, and more. When it came time to invest in data security and traffic management, the company knew it needed technology partners to empower the way its people worked.
“The F5 BIG-IP platform is definitely the best when it comes to intelligent traffic management, but to have network and application security capabilities built right into the same platform was a great fit for us. We wouldn’t be comfortable hosting our applications in-house without the F5 solution.”
Discover how BOWEN’s partnership with WBM led to a successful F5 BIG-IP deployment that unified firewall, traffic management, and advanced security features.
