We needed a solution that could safeguard our network periphery, provide control over Internet access and, in process, speed up the network performance
Mr. Mohammad Primuswala
Highlighting the need for a security solution with strong Content Filtering and
Bandwidth Management features, Mr. Mohammad Primuswala, the IT Manager at
Alsayegh Media said, “We needed a solution that could safeguard our network
periphery, provide control over Internet access and, in process, speed up the network
According to Mr. Primuswala, the issues that they faced were:
Mr. Primuswala noticed that, many a times the available bandwidth was used in nonproductive tasks like: upload/download of music, videos, games and accessing other bandwidth hungry websites. This unmonitored and uncontrolled web and application usage led to deficiency of the network bandwidth and the speed of the network became slow. This in turn, had a bad impact on overall productivity of the employees. Mr. Primuswala said, “Installing a content filtering solution with feature-rich bandwidth management capabilities was a key priority”.
No Control over Internet Access
Often Mr. Primuswala felt that due to the lack of proper logging and monitoring, an invaluable resource, the Internet, was not utilized productively. There were high chances of employees getting diverted from their tasks by accessing social networking sites, downloading/uploading videos, music and doing other non- work related activities. As a result, many times legitimate applications could not be accessed due to inadequate bandwidth.
In a time where cyber threats are increasingly becoming complicated day-by-day, the need for a strong Firewall and an Intrusion Prevention System is now more than ever. For Alsayegh Media, the combination of these two solutions was needed to protect the network against intentional and unintentional hacking & intrusion attempts, and Denial of Service attacks.
The Cyberoam Solution
Mr. Primuswala searched the network security market for a solution with best-of-breed
Content Filtering and powerful Bandwidth Management features. After a thorough
search, he was convinced that Cyberoam could best address the security
requirements for Alsayegh Media. They purchased One (1) CR100iNG and One (1)
