BT signs IT infrastructure deal with EXACT


BT announced a new contract to design, build and manage a secure global network for Exact, a provider of cloud business software.

According to a press statement, the four-year contract covers the creation of an integrated IT infrastructure supporting internal applications and services used by Exact’s 1,600 employees in 14 countries across Europe, North America, Latin America and Asia.

Onno Krap, CFO at Exact, said: “BT’s global strengths, portfolio strategy and local expertise make it an ideal provider to support our international growth and empower our employees in their day-to-day work.”

Next to an optimised global network, the  company will provide connectivity into the global data centres ­hosting Exact’s business applications and data.

The contract also leverages BT Cloud Connect for a high performance network connection to Microsoft Azure.

BT will provide cloud-based protection against cyber threats, blocking known and zero-day threats before they reach the network.

Further,  BT will take over and manage Exact’s in-office – fixed and wireless – networks and help drive employee productivity by providing voice, video, conferencing and remote access services.
