Mr. Ashraf Yoosuf
Mr. Ashraf Yoosuf, the Financial Controller at BTLLC, said, “Unnecessary usage of Internet and lack of connectivity between the offices were our major concerns for the need of a security solution.”
The network security issues they faced were:
Absence of Inter-Office Connectivity
Mr. Yoosuf said, “Our organization was devoid of a solution that could connect our offices with each other. Hence, secure Virtual Private Network (VPN) connectivity between the head office and the branch office was a matter of anxiety. Moreover, often our inter-office communications solely depended on long distance telephone calls which were very expensive. As a result, at times several issues were faced that held back our business profits.”
No Control on Web Usage
Often employees in the company got diverted from the assigned tasks by wasting their time in downloading/uploading music, videos, chatting and unproductive surfing. Hence, Mr. Yoosuf wanted a solution that could keep all these distractions away from his employees, so that they are focused on their responsibilities.
The Cyberoam Solution
BTLLC was in search of a solution that could meet their security needs. Hence, on recommendations of Systrix, a partner to Cyberoam in UAE, they selected Cyberoam as the backbone to secure its network. They purchased Two (2) CR25ia appliances, One (1) at Corp (Head Office) and One (1) at Electra (Branch Office). Both the appliances are deployed in Gateway Mode. The benefits noticed after deploying Cyberoam are:

Mr. Yoosuf said, “After implementing Site to Site IPSec VPN connection we are now able to securely access our Web Applications hosted at the head office”.
