Internet is one of their most important resources. “Our daily business transactions and
activities are very much dependent on the Internet”, said Mr. Edmundo Tapia

Protection Required for Published Servers
Edmundo wanted to ensure complete data security of their servers published online. Since these servers are open to the public, they are exposed to various prevalent cyber threats like DoS attacks and IP Spoofing. Furthermore, he wanted to minimize the chances of outsiders gaining visibility of internal network resources through Phishing, Pharming, hacking or remote exploits. Hence, he required a complete security solution that would safeguard their servers against all the mentioned threats.
Virus and Spyware Contamination
The threat of malware attacks from viruses, worms, Trojans, etc. kept the Metrocolor IT team on their toes. These attacks could culminate into corrupt files, defaced web pages, PDFs and other documents, loss of critical data and system crashes resulting in huge downtime. Any such kind of an attack would cost Metrocolor money, effort, man-hours and, in some cases, even their reputation.

They spent more time on unproductive surfing than any useful work. “For all that I know, they would be loitering on Facebook, rather than researching or doing their work!” mused Edmundo. This had an adverse impact on the company’s productivity.
