Mr. Baki Cubuk
IT Administrator
Dorak Holding

Being a leading player in the Turkish tourism sector, the Internet is used in Dorak Holding on a daily basis. Right from inter-office mail communication to web surfing, the Internet plays a key role in the day-to-day business activities for the organization. “Logging and Reporting of the Internet and other network activities is a must for our organization”, pointed out Mr. Baki Cubuk, the IT Administrator at Dorak Holding.

According to Mr. Cubuk, they faced the following issues:

Need for Reporting

Mr. Cubuk, highlighting the need for a reporting solution, quoted, “Logging and Reporting issues were the primary concern for us”. He was looking for a solution that could provide him with comprehensive logging, reporting and monitoring of the network activities.

According to him, Reporting is a very useful and a must-have feature as it helps an organization in Forensic Analysis and Compliance Management.

The Cyberoam Solution

Dorak Holding looked into a number of top network security vendors including WatchGuard, FortiGate, SonicWALL, Netsafe and NetASQ to address their business needs. The search was for a solution that could provide them robust reporting, with ease of use.

After careful evaluation of all the available options, they decided Cyberoam was the best fit for them. They purchased a total of Eight (8) Cyberoam appliances including One (1) CR 200i, One (1) CR 50iNG, and Two (2) units each of CR 50ia, CR 35ia and CR 25ia. They deployed all Cyberoam appliances in Gateway mode

After deploying Cyberoam in the network, the benefits that they notice are:

  • Perimeter Secured – Intrusions Eliminated

    Cyberoam’s ICSA and Checkmark – dual certified Firewall offers stateful and deep-packet inspection, by protecting Dorak Holding’s internal networks from DoS attacks and IP spoofing attacks.

    Cyberoam’s Intrusion Prevention System has a customized database of over 4,500+ signatures that reach deeper than a Firewall and anti-virus to ensure second level protection for the Dorak Holding’s network from blended threats, backdoor attempts and more.

  • On-appliance Reporting that does not slow down the solution

    Cyberoam offers on-appliance reporting with real-time logs and reports, saving the cost of deploying a dedicated reporting solution. The 1,200+ in-depth reports offer real-time visibility into user and network activities, helping organizations to manage security, display compliance and forensic analysis, unmatched by any network security vendor till date. Cyberoam reports include dynamic and animated reports, in-line graphs, and country maps.

    The best thing about the feature is that despite providing thousands of On-appliances reports, it does not affect the performance of the appliance. “On-Appliance Comprehensive Reporting is one of Cyberoam’s most salient features,” said Mr. Cubuk.

  • Availability of Secured Remote Connectivity

    Cyberoam’s VPN solution bridges the geographical distance between the head office, remote users, and the branch offices. It ensures secure connectivity in a way that no invader can tamper with the data by any means.

    Its SSL VPN feature gives Mr. Cubuk the flexibility to remotely connect with the System for administration and management purposes. Moreover, its VPN connection failover feature offers continuous connectivity for IPSec connections across multiple ISP gateways.

    Mr. Cubuk said, “Cyberoam, with the help of IPSec and SSL VPN, has improved our communication and increased operational efficiency of the organization”.
  • Ease of User with Next-Generation GUI

    Cyberoam UTM has incorporated the principles of usability and Web 2.0 technology to provide a GUI that is easy to use and lets the security administrators feel in control. Given the ubiquitous nature of UTMs in organizations, the aim of this Next-Gen UI is to enable administrators to deploy and configure Cyberoam UTM rapidly and by themselves.

    The GUI supports unified security by allowing creation of rules for all security features – Anti-Malware, Anti-Spam, Intrusion Prevention System, Bandwidth Management, Content Filtering, and more, right from the Firewall Rule page.

  • To Conclude

    Mr. Cubuk happily said, “Cyberoam has engineered a simple, all in one UTM, that can help many organizations quickly provide secure Internet access, as well as setup remote access capabilities. The simplicity of the product is what we like the most.”
