SkyVision Global Networks Ltd. has partnered with Nigeria’s Unity Bank; the partnership will see SkyVision provide its satellite-based Virtual Private Network (VPN) services via its local Nigerian hub to support Unity Bank’s LAN network, connecting the bank’s headquarters in Lagos to its numerous branch offices nationwide.
Unity Bank has 236 branches throughout the country and is also looking into adding more branches in the future therefore this calls for a robust, reliable and highly secure communications solution.
The SkyVision VPN solution connects Unity Bank’s core applications – including peripheral applications – to its headquarters, enabling continuous, seamless business operations in its rural area branches. Fully deployed and managed by SkyVision, SkyVision VPN enabled Unity Bank to connect their LAN sites with no investment in additional infrastructure. The superior technology behind SkyVision VPN offers increased flexibility and enables complete management control.
“As one of the nation’s leading banks and a contributor to Nigeria’s GDP, we needed a viable communications solution we could depend on,” said Zubairu Atiku, Head IT of Unity Bank. “After careful consideration, we chose SkyVision due to their outstanding market reputation, specifically in the finance industry and their ability to deliver exactly what we needed. This included installing and managing a highly-reliable system, coupled with dedicated customer service and technical support, which can’t be compared to previous service providers.”

We are proud to serve Unity Bank as our valued customer and to have provided them with the reliable solution and full support they required and deserve. ”
