Review

Netify Review

NTT Global is an option for clients looking for global managed SD WAN underlay with dedicated internet access (DIA) because of their global Tier-1 backbone, featuring 139 gateways in 52 cities worldwide. They also offer overlay via their SD WAN and SASE vendor partners, creating a flexible service that can perform across multiple countries whilst issuing competitive prices for their partner-based services. 

However, caution is advised for companies based in Latin America as NTT’s network coverage in this region is more limited than for other service providers. Further, there is a low brand awareness for NTT outside the Asia Pacific region, which may be off-putting to some clients.
