Internet is our primary means of communication with partners and customers

“Internet is our primary means of communication with partners and customers”, said Mr. Zilvinas Atkociunas, IT Manager at AUGMA. They use Internet for regular e-banking purposes and communications via email, chat, VoIP, etc. So, an uninterrupted Internet connection is a must for them.

According to Mr. Atkociunas, they faced the following network security issues.

Impending Cyber Threats

Mr. Atkociunas wanted a solution that would control all Internet traffic and provide a level of protection from network-based attacks. It should allow good traffic and deny bad traffic as defined by company‘s security policies. He wanted to protect the network against intentional and unintentional intrusion attempts, and Denial of Service attacks.

Sporadic Security Management

“Previously I used separate Open Source solutions for Firewall, Antispam, Antivirus, etc. Coping with all the ā€˛cranks and knobs‘ of all these solutions separately had become quite a hassle. Furthermore, managing them required some level of expertise. I wished that I had a single, centralized solution that would allow me to manage all the networkrelated issues from one place”, said Mr. Atkociunas.

Malware Menace

Mr. Atkociunas was looking for a highly dependable anti-virus solution which would offer real-time protection from malware attacks including virus, root-kit, worm, Trojan, spyware and other forms of blended threats. He also wanted to secure the entire email network from newly emerging malware threats and reduce overall spam incidence.

The Cyberoam Solution

After scouring through the market for a suitable network security solution, including Netgear Prosecure, Mr. Atkociunas zeroed in on Cyberoam. AUGMA bought One (1) CR 50ia which is deployed in Gateway Mode at their Head Office.

After Cyberoam installation, the following benefits were seen.

  • Cyber Threats Curtailed

    Cyberoam‘s ICSA and Check mark Certified Firewall offers stateful and deep-packet inspection to provide granular access control over Internet and network resources. It prevents unauthorized entry into the private network connected to the Internet. Data entering or leaving the network passes through the firewall, which examines the datam and blocks traffic that does not meet specified security criteria.

  • Malware Overpowered

    Cyberoam‘s Gateway Anti-Virus and Anti-Spyware solution secures the AUGMA network by providing real-time protection against viruses, worms, Trojans, keyloggers, spyware and more on all network traffic. According to Mr. Atkociunas, “Since viruses are overpowered at the gateway itself, we are relieved that our network is much less likely to fall prey to virus attacks”.

  • Cyberoam - All-in-One Solution

    Now, with Cyberoam handling all his network security issues, namely Firewall, Antispam, Antivirus, etc., it has become very easy for Mr. Atkociunas to handle the entire AUGMA network from one platform. “Now I do not need to maintain separate solutions for different security needs. For whatever I need, I just log on to Cyberoam and the task is done!” said Mr. Atkociunas.

  • To Wrap Up

    “Cyberoam is an all-in-one, power-packed security solution. I am very much pleased by its performance”, said Mr. Atkociunas.
