SDG objectives are built into everything we do at WASP Digital. Having SDWAN & SASE Solutions as a key strategic partner in the Africa Connective and their unique OMNIA solution solves many of the specific issues faced by individuals and businesses in Africa, both existing businesses and those that are up and coming.

“Being born and raised in Africa, I have always dreamt of empowering my homeland with more opportunities, bringing greater prosperity and opportunities for as many people as possible,” said Anthony Senter, CEO at SDWAN & SASE Solutions. “Ensuring that all businesses across Africa have immediate yet affordable access to the latest advanced network technologies and security frameworks, will help deliver these opportunities. SDWAN and SASE Solutions and WASP Digital’s partnership is delivering advanced technologies across the entire continent and to every nation within it, and we are delighted to work with WASP Digital as their team has a clearly articulated connect Africa strategy.”

“OMNIA by default solves many of the business frustrations and barriers affecting Africa specifically, such as being able to use connectivity options like dual 4G and satellite at a vastly reduced cost, in comparison to traditional fixed lines, putting it within reach of all business sizes from SMEs to Corporates,” said Toby Sturridge, CTO at SDWAN & SASE Solutions. “As OMNIA needs only one single Vena network and security device, which can be run on a 12 volt battery, OMNIA is ideal for remote regions therefore becoming a key enabler of many SDGs, as defined by various highly respected change-making organisations.”
