Mr. Tomas Vežbavičius, the IT Administrator at Festina was looking for a single box solution to meet their security, productive and connectivity needs. “We needed a Gateway Firewall, Content Filtering, Application Filtering and Anti Spam solution,” informed Mr. Vežbavičius.

According to Mr. Vežbavičius, the issues that they faced were:

Need for a Firewall

The organization needed a Firewall and an Intrusion Prevention solution. The combination of both the solutions was needed to protect the network against intentional and unintentional intrusion attempts, and Denial of Service attacks.

Controlling Surfing Practices

In the absence of any surfing control solution, the organization had to rely on the self-discipline of the employees to surf safely. Intentional or unintentional harmful surfing often opened the possibility of Malware infiltration from the web. There was a constant lingering fear of downloading inappropriate software like IM and P2P applications. One of the most important vectors of worry was the employee productivity. The productivity might be affected while spending precious time in unproductive surfing and messaging.

Control over Application usage

Mr. Vežbavičius desired a solution with granular Application Controls. He wanted to provide full access to business-critical applications while blocking the undesirable and unproductive applications. Moreover, the need was for a solution that could provide him with user based visibility and controls over the applications accessed over company network.

Clean Mail

Festina faced a huge amount of Spam mails on a daily basis. Many of these mails were not only unsolicited, but also often contained Worms and Trojans. In the absence of an Anti Spam solution, all the unfiltered mails have to first be stored and then manually filtered by the individual user. In case a malware-laced mail was accidentally opened, it led to multiple complications.
