Orange’s enterprise arm will supply a hybrid network covering 355 locations to consumer and industrial goods manufacturer Henkel after winning a five-year deal.

The contract sees Orange Business Services provide a range of services to around 50,000 staff at the owner of the Persil, Schwarzkopf and Loctite brands.

OBS will combine multiple technologies including Business VPN Internet and a managed security solution that enables Henkel to apply real-time controls to respond to emerging threats.

Financial details of the contract, which covers North and South America, Central and Eastern Europe, Middle East and Africa, were not disclosed.

Uwe Wirtz, Head of Service Delivery IT, Integrated Business Solutions at Henkel, said: “Seamless global communications with outstanding security capabilities are vital for us.”

Anne-Sophie Lotgering, Senior Vice President, Europe, Russia and CIS at Orange Business Services, added: “This new partnership between our companies will enable Henkel to grow their business on a global scale with confidence in our managed security services, while meeting their objective of reducing overall IT and telecommunications costs.”
