Managed SASE for Forecourts
Our Managed SASE for Forecourts solution, Secure Access Service Edge, enables your forecourt business to adopt new digital technology and diversify your revenue streams while ensuring high performance and security from wherever your users connect.
The evolving network needs of forecourt businesses
In a climate where consumers are seeking out more environmentally friendly methods of transport, spending on petrol fuel is decreasing. However, the demand for everyday convenience remains consistently strong. With your forecourt sites often within easy reach for many customers, there is an excellent opportunity to diversify your revenue stream and cater to customers' daily requirements.
This diversification may include services such as cafés and food outlets, parcel collection, pharmacy and laundry services, car wash and repair, or customer Wi-Fi. Yet, providing these services with ease and efficiency requires digital technology. Digital tools, such as digital signage, click-and-collect smart lockers, or customer Wi-Fi, will enhance the customer experience. Meanwhile, IoT sensors and SaaS can boost your efficiency in delivery.
However, alongside the benefits of adopting new digital technology to drive your forecourt business growth, there are some challenges. Two of these revolve around managing the performance and security of your network.
Why an increase in new digital applications can create network congestion
While IoT, SaaS and other digital applications will support your growth and diversification, they increase network traffic, hindering their performance and that of your other cloud-based tools.
These applications and platforms are often data-intensive or require complex processing, creating network congestion and impacting user experience.
This challenge is particularly prevalent when these digital tools have been added organically and are used via multiple public or private clouds without evaluating the network architecture and its capacity to support their activity.
Forecourt Cybersecurity Vulnerabilities
Cyber-attacks are becoming ever-more sophisticated, and often, dated network architecture and connectivity solutions do not have the inherent cyber-protection needed to protect against these. With the addition of new digital applications and platforms increasing your attack surface, cybersecurity risks may be further elevated.
For your forecourt business, it is critical to be mindful of your network's vulnerabilities and ensure the appropriate levels of cybersecurity are in place to minimise the opportunities for cyber-attacks and the costly impact they can have on your organisation.
