Yasaminiz, Istanbul, Turkey
Cyberoam Secures Turkey’s Yasaminiz Hospital
About Yasaminiz, HealthCare
Established on March 14, 1987 Yasaminiz is a Life Hospital for all residents of Istanbul to serve them with the quality of service for over 20 years. The hospital with its name and reputation, trained doctors, nurses and medical staff became popular all over Turkey.
Yasiminiz confidential data are under constant threat from spyware, and DoS attacks. So they were in need of Gateway firewall for protection of their entire network.
Mr. Cuneyt EGE
According to Mr. Cuneyt EGE, IT Manager at Yasaminiz the hospital was facing the following security and connectivity challenges related to its business activities.
Battening the Fringe
Mr. Cuneyt wanted a solution that would control the entire Internet traffic and provides a level of protection from network-based attacks by allowing good traffic and denying bad traffic as defined by a security policy. They needed to protect the network against intentional and unintentional intrusion attempts, and Denial of Service attacks.
Control Unproductive Surfing
The organisation needed to know who was accessing what sites and needed an identity based filter and reporting system that would include a users' online behavioural audit. The solution would also be required to block harmful spyware/malware infested sites. It was also required to limit access to unproductive sites - such as Web-mail, HTTPS, news, online shopping and gaming – and block „phishing' and „pharming' sites which trick users into revealing confidential data.
Business Continuity Concerns
Yasaminiz has evolved into an hospital with independent networks at remote sites supporting many users. The primary challenges for Yasaminiz were to provide access to sensitive data across a more secure and stable VPN. Internet is relied on profoundly to allow remote sites VPN access back to the main office.
The Cyberoam Solution
After experiencing a range of products, Yasaminiz decided to try Cyberoam UTM and it blend seamlessly into the network infrastructure and resolved all problems. Cyberoam's CR50ia was deployed in the gateway mode at their Head Office.
