Like every organization, Internet is used in the Ministry for carrying out most of their day-to-day working, a majority of which includes inter-office and external communication. “Internet is one of our most important resources, and hence it needs to be aptly secured”, said Ir. Teguh Dwi Utomo, MT, the Head of Information Resource Development (Kasubag Pengembangan Sumberdaya Informatika) at the Ministry.

He faced the following Internet security issues:

Unruly Internet Surfing

“I wanted to bring under strict control all the unproductive surfing in my organization”, said Ir. Teguh Dwi Utomo, MT. He noticed a lot of uncontrolled Internet surfing in the form of social networking, gaming and streaming of audio and video content. Thi s resulted in employees wasting a lot of their time in such activities, which could otherwise be used for productive work unto the Ministry.

Misuse of Available Bandwidth

Employees’ Internet surfing activities like gaming and streaming of bandwidth-intensive content led to a lot of strain on the organization’s available bandwidth. Most of the bandwidth was used up by all the unproductive surfing, leaving critical applications to yearn for even a little bandwidth so that it can function. Sometimes, this even went to the extent of slowing the entire working of the organization down, seriously affecting productivity.

The Cyberoam Solution

After exploring the market for suitable Internet Security solutions, Ir. Teguh Dwi Utomo, MT settled for Cyberoam, deciding that it was the best solution tending to all their needs. They purchased One (1) CR 1000ia and deployed it in Bridge Mode at their Head Office in Jakarta. After Cyberoam deployment, the following benefits were noticed.

  • Network Perimeter Firewalled

    The Cyberoam firewall acts as a filter between the organization’s gateway and the Internet in order to block malicious attempts to access the network, and allow only legitimate traffic. ICSA and Checkmark - dual certified Cyberoam’s stateful inspection firewall solution now cordons off the Ministry’s network and guards its servers against any unauthorized access. The organization’s users are given controlled access to network and internet resources, ensuring that no security loopholes are left open.

  • Thorough Monitoring of Internet Surfing

    “Thanks to Cyberoam, I am able to control exactly who accesses what on the Internet in the entire organization”, said Ir. Teguh Dwi Utomo, MT. Cyberoam’s Web and Application Filtering controls Internet access by blocking inappropriate and unsafe Web content, including phishing and other malware -laden sites. This is done through a constantly updated database of millions of sites divided into 82+ categories including social networking, gaming, pornography, P2P, entertainment and job search.

  • Bandwidth Usage Optimized

    Cyberoam’s Bandwidth Management solution solved the Ministry’s earlier issues with bandwidth scarcity for business-critical applications.

    Bandwidth Management offers Identity-based bandwidth control, preventing congestion, bandwidth abuse and optimizing bandwidth. Ir. Teguh Dwi Utomo, MT, can now prioritize the organization’s bandwidth usage as per business requirements with more effective controls on which user consumes how much bandwidth (upload and download limits) during any time of the day.

  • Efficient Inter-office Data Exchange

    Cyberoam’s IPSec VPN connectivity ensures secure connection between the Ministry’s Head Office and Branch Offices. They have seamless exchange of classified data without any worries of breakdown in Internet traffic. Threat-free Tunneling (TFT)-driven VPN ensures that all such traffic is securely encrypted preventing any attempts of intrusions or tampering.

    “Our network’s performance has improved considerably after installation of Cyberoam. It is definitely a good security solution”, said Ir. Teguh Dwi Utomo, MT.
