Mr. Raimundas Mačiulevičius
Baltic Banking Service UAB
Being a leading Software Services provider company, the Internet is used for
Development, Research and Market Analysis related to financial sector. In addition,
the Internet plays a key role in inter-office as well as business communication with
potential clients. Hence, providing a secure and monitored Internet access to their
employees is a key priority for the company. “The need for us was a solution that
could help us provide secure and monitored Internet access to the employees with
proper Content Filtering, Logging and Reporting policies in place”, said Mr.
Raimundas Mačiulevičius, the IT Administrator at Baltic Banking Service UAB.
According to Mr. Mačiulevičius, the issues that they faced were:
Lack of Monitoring
Mr. Mačiulevičius, highlighting the need for a reporting solution, quoted, “We needed a
Reporting solution that could give us real time logging and monitoring of all the
network activities”. He further added, “Our primary concern was to have complete
visibility and control over a user’s network activities”.
Web and Application Filtering
Just like every other IT company, the Internet connectivity in Baltic Banking Service
UAB has both pros and cons. On one hand, it opens the door to a pool of useful
information, on the other hand, it offers a multitude of opportunities to divert
employees’ mind from productive work to undesired activities like gaming, shopping,
social networking, and media downloads and uploads. Employees wasting their time
in undesired Web and Application usage is highly undesirable for any organization
and hence, Mr. Mačiulevičius was looking for a solution that could help him put a full
stop on the indiscriminate use of the Internet.
The Cyberoam Solution
Baltic Banking Service UAB was in search of a solution with best-of-breed Web and
Application Filtering capabilities along with real time Logging and Reporting of all the
network activities. After careful evaluation of all the products from major vendors, they
found Cyberoam, with its best-of-breed Content Filtering and Industry-leading
Reporting capabilities, to be a clear winner. They purchased One (1) CR 35iNG
Appliance and deployed it at their office in Vilnius, Lithuania in Gateway Mode.
After deploying Cyberoam in the network, the benefits that they notice are:
- Security built around the user's identity
In order to address the concerns of gaining visibility and controls on user activity in the
network, Cyberoam’s Layer 8 technology has been derived out of the need for a more
robust network security system that can include a user's human identity as part of the
firewall rule matching criteria. The Layer 8 technology penetrates through all the
security modules of Cyberoam Network Security Appliance.
All security features can be centrally configured
and managed from a single Firewall Rule page
with complete ease. Layer 8 binds these
security features to create a single,
consolidated security unit and enables the
administrator to change security policies
dynamically while accounting for user
- Powerful Web and Application Filtering
Cyberoam’s award-winning Web Filtering offers
one of the most comprehensive URL databases
with millions of URLs grouped into 89+
categories. Available as a subscription with the
Network Security Appliances, it blocks access
to harmful websites, preventing Malware,
Phishing, Pharming attacks and undesirable
content that could lead to legal liability and
direct financial losses.
Cyberoam delivers comprehensive control and
visibility over more than 2,000 applications. It
controls unauthorized application usage while
supporting business-critical applications.
Cyberoam classifies applications based on their
risk level, characteristics and technology,
offering granular controls and visibility on which
applications are being accessed and by whom,
irrespective of their ports and protocols.
Moreover, real-time network logs and reports
further allow the administrators to promptly re-set Application Filtering settings for maximum
security and productivity.
Mr. Mačiulevičius happily quoted, “Cyberoam’s
Application Filtering capabilities are quite
comprehensive and very useful for us. I am
quite satisfied with Cyberoam’s coverage on
Application Visibility and Control”.
- Comprehensive Logging and Monitoring
Cyberoam offers real-time visibility into network
and user activity with the Human Layer 8
Identity-based reporting, source and destination
of attacks, Internet access and bandwidth
usage. The Logging and Reporting feature
offers forensic analysis with historic user and
system activity, reducing the cost of
investigation and minimizing network downtime.
It also facilitates compliance with CIPA, PCI
DSS, HIPAA, GLBA and SOX regulations,
reduces cost of compliance and enables easy
demonstration of compliance capability with
audit logs and visibility into who accessed what
and when. To top it all, this feature comes at no
“Cyberoam’s live Logs and Reports makes it
easy for us to control and mitigate problems
related to network security since now we have
full tab on all the Network and User activities
happening in the network”, said Mr.
- A VPN Feature to Overcome all Remote Access Issues
Cyberoam delivers Any Where, Any Time, Any
Device access with a range of VPN options,
ensuring uninterrupted business operations,
enhanced productivity and lower cost of
operations. Cyberoam offers the option of
IPSec VPN, L2TP, PPTP and SSL VPN over its
Network Security Appliances, providing reliable
remote access to organizations. Mr.
Mačiulevičius has configured a SSL VPN policy
to remotely access Computers, Servers etc.

“Cyberoam appliance is definitely a bundle of joy for us. Having all networking
and security features, including Logs and Reports, on a single device saves us a
great deal of time and money”, said Mr. Mačiulevičius.
