Mr. Audrius Kazlauskas
For Biotechpharma, the Internet plays a key role in cutting-edge research and learning
related to Biopharmaceutical industry. However, when it comes to usage of the
Internet, the company has a responsibility to protect its staff from the Net’s harmful
and unproductive side. Mr. Audrius Kazlauskas, the IT Head at Biotechpharma UAB
said, “We needed a solution that could provide us full accountability of web and
application usage of the staff, and guard the company network from Viruses and
According to Mr. Kazlauskas, the issues that they faced were:
Need for Web and Application Filtering
The staff at Biotechpharma relies heavily on the Internet for business communication,
as well as industry related research and learning. Keeping in mind the heavy usage of
the Internet in the organization, Mr. Kazlauskas desired to enforce a fair and
disciplined Internet access to all users. While some productive websites and
applications need to be always available, the unproductive and harmful websites and
applications, and undesired upload/download etc. needed to be blocked.
Mr. Kazlauskas quoted, “Having full visibility, security and control over the websites
and applications accessed over the company network was a key requirement for us.”
User Accountability Issues
Mr. Kazlauskas desired deployment of a proper user accountability solution in the
network, which could monitor the entire browsing pattern of a user. He said, “We
wanted a solution that could provide us with total accountability of a user’s Internet
activities, irrespective of the device they use to connect to the company network”.
Virus and Malware Threats
“Looking at the heavy usage of the Internet for business purposes, it becomes
necessary for the company to provide the staff with a Virus and Malware free
environment to work in”, said Mr. Kazlauskas. He wanted the solution to identify and
cover all possible entry points that could possibly lead to the company network being
infected with such threats.
The Cyberoam Solution
Biotechpharma was in search of a solution that could provide them with top class total
security services. They looked into major network security vendors and carefully
evaluated them to identify the solution that could best fit their requirements. After a
thorough evaluation, they purchased Two (2) CR 100ia and One (1) CR25ia
Appliances and deployed both the Appliances in Bridge Mode.
After deploying Cyberoam in the network, the benefits that they notice are:
- Controlled Web and Application usage
Cyberoam’s web filtering database has more
than 100 million websites neatly grouped into
more than 89 categories. The Identity based
security approach helps Mr. Kazlauskas to bind
User identity with a Web Filter policy. This in
turn, enables him to have granular control and
unparalleled flexibility in implementing the
company’s policy of content accessed over the
Internet. Moreover, the feature is coupled with
Bandwidth Management feature, which ensures
bandwidth availability and data transfer limit
based on duration and schedule of access for
specific web categories and for specific users.
Cyberoam delivers comprehensive control and
visibility over more than 2,000 applications. It
controls unauthorized application usage while
supporting business-critical applications.
Cyberoam Firewall blocks games and tunneling
software that result in Malware entry.
Mr. Kazlauskas says, “Cyberoam’s Web and
Application filtering policies proved to be highly
efficient in preventing unauthorized web surfing,
uploads/downloads and undesired application
- User Accountability Concerns Addressed
Cyberoam’s Layer 8 Technology allows Mr.
Kazlauskas to design identity-based policies,
which extends throughout the network,
irrespective of the device used by the
employees to connect to the network.
Cyberoam network security appliances offer
identity-based AAA (Authentication,
Authorization, and Audit) allowing control and
visibility of who is connected to your network,
using what device and what
websites/applications they are accessing.
“Thanks to Cyberoam, we now have complete
accountability of all our network user’s web
surfing activities”, said Mr. Kazlauskas.
- Virus Free Network
Cyberoam’s Check Mark Level 5 certified
Gateway Anti-Virus and Anti-Spyware is tightly
integrated with IPS, Web Filtering and Anti-Spam modules, securing organizations against
blended attacks and maintaining high levels of
security. With the Virus detection rate of 99.5%,
it ensures that no Malware or Spyware passes
through the network edge. Additionally, it blocks
upload/download or attachments for specified
file types such as executables, media files,
PDF, zipped files etc. ensuring data leakage
prevention of confidential information.
Impressed with Cyberoam’s Virus filtering
capabilities, Mr. Kazlauskas said, “99.5% for
Virus detection rate is an impressive figure. I
am happy to say that post Cyberoam
deployment, we have enjoyed a Virus free
- Free-of-cost On-Appliance Reporting
Cyberoam network security appliances deliver
in-depth reporting over the appliance,
eliminating the need for an independent
reporting solution and minimizing the resultant
security investment and operational expense.
Over 1,200 in-depth reports offer real-time
visibility into user and network activities over
dual dashboards – Security dashboard and
Traffic dashboard. Its Forensic Analysis feature
offers historic user, network and system
activity, reducing the cost of investigation and
minimizing network downtime.
“Cyberoam provides thousands of useful
reports, providing us with a pretty clear idea of
a user’s web surfing and application usage
activities”, Mr. Kazlauskas said.

penny we invested on it. It has silently solved almost all our network security
