BASKING RIDGE, N.J., March 21, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Galderma, a leading global pharmaceutical company focused on dermatology, wanted a cost-efficient means of increasing the capacity of its IT global network infrastructure to support its increasingly data-intensive workload. The company chose a fully managed communications network from Verizon Enterprise Solutions, underpinned by Verizon's comprehensive security solutions and professional service expertise. The result is a secure, reliable global communications platform that Galderma's employees can use to access and share the confidential data, such as medical research and financial data, which drive the company's business growth.

Galderma, headquartered in Switzerland, has 31 wholly owned affiliates with a worldwide network of distributors and more than 4,000 employees. Galderma's extensive product portfolio is available in 70 countries and treats a wide range of dermatological conditions.

As Galderma's business continued to expand, the company sought a global communications provider that could offer greater bandwidth flexibility within a more cost-efficient business model. Verizon's global reach, advanced communications solutions and proven security expertise made the company a logical choice – particularly when supported by the extensive consultancy skills of Verizon's professional services team.

"Highly confidential medical research data has to be handled correctly. Security is our No. 1 concern, and there can be no compromise," said Francois Jolles, director of Global IT infrastructure at Galderma. "Verizon is not only recognized as a global communications expert, but also as a trusted security adviser, and the Verizon team quickly proved they could deliver on our objectives. Verizon's integrated solution has already yielded substantial financial returns:  We have more than doubled our bandwidth capacity for nearly half the cost of what we paid previously. But most importantly, this has been achieved without any compromises on the high service quality and security levels we demand."

The Verizon solution consists of a managed global WAN that spans 42 Galderma sites, including the company's major R&D centers in France, Sweden, Japan and the U.S. as well as manufacturing sites in Brazil, Canada, France and Sweden. Integrated security within the WAN includes Secure Gateway, firewalls and monitoring-management solutions as well as professional services project management.

Verizon Enterprise Solutions creates global connections that generate growth, drive business innovation and move society forward. With industry-specific solutions and a full range of global wholesale products and services offered over the company's secure mobility, cloud, strategic networking and advanced communications platforms, Verizon Enterprise Solutions helps open new opportunities around the world for innovation, investment and business transformation.
