Mr. Hasan Yilmaz
Having heavy usage of the Internet for business activities at Reis Makina, the
installation of an efficient network security solution was on top priority. Explaining
about the organization's Network Security requirements Mr. Hasan Yilmaz, IT
Manager at Reis Makina said, "We needed a Unified Threat Management solution that
would provide us with effective Web and Application filtering."
According to Mr. Yilmaz, the issues that they faced were:
Need for Content Filtering
According to Mr. Yilmaz, the down side of having your business heavily dependent on
the Internet is that it exposes your network to a wide range of harmful entities like
Virus, Malware, Spyware, Adware etc. He wanted to protect the Reis Makina's
network from the dark side of the Internet. Hence, the search was for a solution that
would provide him with effortless content filtering. Moreover, he wanted the web
categorisation to be simple and straightforward enough to adjust the settings without
the need to rely on external support.
Mr. Yilmaz said, "We were looking for a solution that could protect our users from
harmful and inappropriate content on the Internet".

Mr. Yilmaz looked into a number of solutions by major network security vendors,
including Cisco, to address their business requirements. Reis Makina was in search of
a solution that could provide them with best-in-class content filtering at reasonable
price. After a thorough search and analysis of all the available options, they were
deeply impressed with Common Criteria - EAL4+ certified Cyberoam. Moreover, they
found Cyberoam's content filtering abilities to be of top class. They purchased One (1)
