The IT team at Macau McDonald’s manages a data center that supports thirty McDonald’s restaurants across Macau and two nearby cities, ZhuHai and ZhongShan, using routers for site-to-site VPN tunneling to provide services to their employees. The team manages the day-to-day operations that keep McDonalds a popular destination for both residents, as well as tourists. The data center is comprised of core business systems and applications that include HR, ordering and supply chain management. The IT team’s mandate is to have a secure network connection for the employees in order to conduct business. Not having secure access would mean that business transactions would be at risk, thereby impacting not only productivity, but also sales and revenue. In addition, the IT team requires full visibility into the network traffic, application and user information. Having this visibility ensures control of the network and its security.
