I am very pleased with Cyberoam’s performance. It delivered full ROI for us thanks to its excellent AD Integration, Reporting, VPN and IM Controls features.
Mr. Zacharia Kurian
Data Center & Network
Highlighting the need for a network security solution, Mr. Zacharia Kurian, the
Administrator - Data Center & Network, at Four Films said, “We required a solution
that could provide us with flawless AD integration, easy to use VPN feature, and full
control over IM applications with in-built Reporting feature.”
AD Integration Issues
Mr. Kurian desired to authenticate all users connecting to the Internet with Active
Directory. He was looking for a solution to act as a proxy server for Active Directory
(AD) integration purposes. He wanted to map the existing users in their AD Server
with Cyberoam. Hence, a solution that could provide him with easy to use and
flawless AD Integration feature was needed.
Need for Logging and Reporting
Mr. Kurian worryingly quoted, “Our previous solution provided just the basic Reporting, which was not good enough for us”. He believes that every UTM solution should be capable enough to yield comprehensive Logging and Reporting. He added that the Reports help organizations in Network security Policy -making, Bandwidth Management, Forensic Analysis and Compliance Management.
Highlighting the need for a VPN solution Mr. Kurian said, “We need to provide the Management and Sales people access to the Email, MIS and other network resources for business purposes, while they are away on business trips”. Since the VPN feature is used most by the non-IT people, he wanted a solution that was easy enough for even a non-IT person to be able to configure it without any external support.
No Control over IM Applications
Mr. Kurian said, “We did not have any mechanism in place to have total control over the IM and P2P activities of our employees”. He desired to block or provide access to IM, VoIP and P2P applications based on the business requirement and work profile of the employees.
The Cyberoam’s On-Cloud Management Service Solution
Dissatisfied with their previous solution, Four Films was looking for a better solution
that could address their above-mentioned security concerns. The search was for a
solution that could address their business challenges with the least management
overheads. After a thorough search, they found Cyberoam to be the best option and
purchased Two (2) CR 100iNG Appliances. They deployed both the Cyberoam
Appliances in Gateway Mode in High Availability at their Data Center
