Case Study: SAP on Azure

Zero trust for SAP and SAP digital supply chains


“With NetFoundry we were able to easily and securely connect our sites to SAP on Azure.  We got stronger security with fine grain network policy definitions down to the user and app level, and gained noticeable improvements in SAP application performance”

Kristofferson De Ocampo
Head of Cybersecurity, IT Infrastructure and Operations, Ayala


Ayala needed a private network solution for SAP on Azure. Deploying a traditional private network via dedicated circuits or VPN tunnels didn’t meet their needs for agility, security or performance. Ayala chose the industry’s first solution for SAP zero trust security, including user access, admin access and partner access – NetFoundry SaaS, built on the OpenZiti open source platform.

Ayala spun up the SAP on Azure zero trust solution in hours.  Ongoing SAP management and administration has become simpler and more secure with application-specific, micro-segmented networks (“AppWANs”), managed via web console and APIs for centralized identity and policy control.

NetFoundry’s hosted global Fabric enabled Ayala to get high performance and reliability from local Internet connections. NetFoundry’s Fabric is deployed across multiple tier one ISPs, and the NetFoundry software endpoints dynamically route across the best paths, giving Ayala direct, latency optimized paths to Azure hosted SAP.
