Case Study: First National Bank

Game changer for South Africa's oldest bank

First National Bank (FNB) chose Cisco ACI and Cisco Tetration as its core data center solution. Cisco Tetration vastly improves data-center troubleshooting and security, and Cisco ACI automates processes, enforces network and application policies, and segments FNB's data across multiple data centers.



  • Increase data center visibility.
  • Improve problem identification and troubleshooting.
  • Defend against persistent, multifaceted cyber attacks.


  • Produced a detailed picture of application connectivity, dependencies, and data flows.
  • Accelerated problem resolution from tens of hours to minutes.
  • Slashed malware infection rate from 9 percent to 0.1 percent.

What they're saying

Tetration gives me 20/20 vision in the data center. It's the only tool in the world that can show what is happening across the network, application, and server planes all on one screen.

Eugene Pretorius, CIO of Infrastructure and Security, FNB
