The network covered sensitive information which was under constant threat from spyware and DoS attacks. So they needed a strong Firewall solution.
Mr. Lindsay Henson
Mr. Lindsay Henson, the Sales Manager at Hayselden Barnsley was looking for a reliable Internet security platform to protect the organization and its users. “We needed a solution which would give us highest ROI while addressing our major security concerns – all in a single box”, Mr. Henson said. The concerns are listed below.
Guarding the Network Gateway
Hayselden’s servers contain the applications, and data that can be possibly targeted by attacks from external entities. Servers in their networks host clients and employees’ information which had to be protected against outside access attempts. The organization, therefore, needed a gateway firewall to regulate user authentication and access control.
Protection against Malware
In the absence of gateway antivirus, users surfing the Web are constantly exposed to the danger of malware infestation. The employees and staff was especially concerned about the possibility of their network being made vulnerable to further attacks through accidental visits to malware-laden website/blog pages or unsafe downloads. These malware enters the gateway in the form of mail traffic, unsafe data transfer, and unsafe surfing as well as browsing. These attacks had the potential to modify productive documents and knock down significant data. As a result the productivity suffered.
Monitoring Website Access
“There are millions of potentially harmful sites harboring illegal or inappropriate content and we needed to ensure that employees connecting to our network would be protected with the most advanced Web filtering technology.” said Mr. Henson. They needed strong web filtering solutions which could control all Internet access and give informative reports on Internet usage.
Hayselden has evolved into an organization with independent networks at many sites supporting a large number of users. The primary challenges for Hayselden were to provide access to sensitive data across a more secure and stable VPN and to improve the management reporting on Internet usage and accessibility.
