Cyberoam has helped us solve the problems in our network. It is indeed a very good network security solution
Mr. Charles Akoury
“Internet is our most valuable resource, without which our day-to-day business would
get hampered”, said Mr. Charles Akoury, IT Manager at Arrow Food. It is the
Company’s responsibility to provide safe and hassle-free Internet connectivity to its
employees. Hence, to do so, Mr. Akoury wanted to resolve the following issues.
Malware and Spam Troubles
The Arrow Food network required protection against virus, root-kit, worm, Trojan and
spyware infections. Lack of sophisticated network security solutions and unruly web
surfing by employees made the network as exposed to malware as a flower-bed is to
bees. These malware attacks which often took a blended form through email
attachments, PDF, Word documents etc. had the potential to corrupt useful files and
destroy important data.
Vulnerable Network Perimeter
“We were in search of an Advanced Firewall that would protect our network from the constantly evolving cyber threats”, said Mr. Akoury. He wanted to protect the Arrow Food network from hacking, remote exploits, Denial-of-service (DoS) attacks and other unpredictable attacks. Also, he wanted to minimize the chances of unauthorized, external sources gaining visibility of the network’s internal resources through Phishing or Pharming.
The Cyberoam Solution
After thorough inspection of network security solutions in the market, Mr. Akoury
zeroed in on Cyberoam. They purchased One (1) CR 100iNG and deployed it at their
Head Office in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia. After Cyberoam installation, they noticed the
following security benefits.
