Wandera deploys Vertica analytics database management platform to improve the performance, reliability, and scalability of its mobile protection products.
Wandera offers the most advanced mobile security, deployed in minutes.
The Challenge: As Wandera’s customer base grew, it experienced speed and scalability issues with its current vendor. The company recognized the need to expand its data storage capacity, improve processing speed, provide real-time information, and gain the ability to optimize processing with internal resources.
The Strategy: Wandera began its search for a new vendor in 2016 and looked at several options available on Amazon Web Services (AWS). In February 2017 the decision to migrate to Vertica was made with a planned deployment for June 2017.
Key Benefit Areas: Moving to Vertica enabled Wandera to replace a legacy system, improve performance, reliability, and scalability of its mobile protection products while reducing costs and increasing productivity.
Vertica is designed for high volume data processing and uses columnar storage, that enables Wandera to access information faster because the software does not have to search rows or the entire table – only the specific columns selected. Additionally, the capability to
compress similar or repetitive values can save as much as 90 percent of storage space.
