Having a number of branch offices, the connectivity between them was very weak due to which our organization suffered.
Mr. Alfonso Andres
Mr. Alfonso Andrés Benítez Soto, the Information Manager at Cajval said, “Having a number of branch offices, the connectivity between them was very weak due to which our organization suffered”.
The security issues faced were:
Lack of Inter-Office Connectivity
Cajval had many branch offices and most of their resources were deployed at the head office. Hence, in order to communicate with each other the employees had to use the leased lines to get necessary information. But the leased lines were very costly and inefficient. As a result, secured and efficient Virtual Private Network (VPN) connectivity between the offices had become a topic of concern for them.
The Cyberoam Solution
Cajval considered many solutions, like Fortinet, in search for a good solution. After having a demo of Cyberoam, they were satisfied with it and decided to deploy it in their network.
The positive results noticed after deploying Cyberoam are:
- Powerful Network Security
Cyberoam’s Firewall, Checkmark and ICSA certified ensures that the organization’s network is safe from attacks like DoS, DDoS, IP Spoofing and other network attacks. It also provides granular access controls over Internet traffic and network resources. Its Fusion Technology blends security, connectivity and productivity by enabling the administrators to create policies for multiple features through a single interface.
With a database of 4500+ IPS signatures Cyberoam’s Intrusion Prevention System (IPS) automatically detects, blocks and drops the suspicious mail and web traffic ensuring total network security. It also provides signature updating facility that updates the signatures regularly and provides zero-hour protection against latest attacks.
Sr Alfonso Benítez S. said, “Cyberoam keeps us secured from all network threats that can cause harm to our network’s privacy”.
- Availability of Secured Inter-Office Connectivity
Cyberoam’s VPN bridges the geographical distance between the head office, remote users, and the branch offices. It ensures secure connectivity in a way that no invader can tamper with the data by any means. Thus, resources like Intranet, Self-Service Portals, administrative resources, inventory, printing and shared folders can now be easily and securely accessed by the remote users. Moreover, its VPN connection failover feature offers continuous connectivity for IPSec connections across multiple ISP gateways.
Sr Alfonso Benítez S. said, “Cyberoam, with the help of IPSec and SSL VPN, has improved our communication and increased operational efficiency of the organization”.
- Business Stability Maintained
Cyberoam’s Multiple Link Management, smartly distributes the Internet traffic between the three ISP links ensuring their optimal usage. Moreover, the Multi-Link Manager is always alert, keeping a constant watch on the performance of the links. If any of the links is found to be dead, the load is automatically transferred to the working link, leading to continuous Internet availability. Sr Alfonso Benítez S. said, “Cyberoam’s Multiple Link Management improves and optimizes the availability of Internet links without any downtime”.
- User Activity Monitored
Cyberoam’s On-Appliance Reporting feature enables the administrator to know “Who is doing What?” across the network and remote locations. It includes features like Traffic Discovery, Internet Bandwidth Usage Monitors, Top Accessed Categories and Google Search Reports, which enhances the visibility of a user’s online behaviour. Additionally, this feature comes absolutely free. Having 1000+ granular reports at their service, the company can keep a track of each employee and know their work trend. Hence, based on the tendency, the company can also coin business policies to stop the unhealthy surfing habits of the users.
Sr Alfonso Benítez S. said, “Cyberoam’s On-Appliance Reporting feature enables us to monitor any possible security concern or unforeseen network activities occurring in the organization”.
- To Conclude
Sr Alfonso Benítez S. said, expressing his satisfaction, “Service provided in the organization by Cyberoam has a high level of quality and the implementation of services is also most adequate”.
