Mr. Rafiki Mohammed
Network & Security IT Manager
Highlighting the need for a total security solution, Mr. Rafiki Mohammed, the Network
& Security IT Responsible at Salam Gaz said, “We were looking for a reliable, high
performing and affordable total security solution that could help us tackle concerns
related to business continuity and data privacy”.
Need for a Feature-packed and Reliable Security Solution
“Our previous solution had limited functionalities and suffered from regular Hardware
failures, which in turn, cost us a great deal of time, money and productivity”, said Mr.
Mohammed. He added, “What we needed was a total security solution that was
feature-rich yet affordable, scalable, and reliable”.
Data Privacy Issues
From loss of brand reputation to regulatory fines, the negative impacts of data breaches are clear. Just a single incident of data loss can eat upon a business's competitive advantage, weaken consumer confidence, and result in fines or penalties from regulators. Moreover, the rapid proliferation of BYOD has further added to the problem - increasing the opportunity for data loss and t heft. Mr. Mohammed said, “We are living in a time where data is money. Thus, curbing data loss and ensuring data privacy becomes one of the top most priorities for any organization”.
Business Continuity Concerns
Hardware failure such as a failure of the power supply, hard disk, or processor is the main reason behind the failure of Internet security system. For any organization that is heavily dependent on the Internet for business activities, downtime of even a single minute can lead to a great deal of business loss. Not to forget the bad effect it leaves on the reputation of the organization. For Salam Gaz, the need for multiple appliances running in High Availability was an absolute necessity.
The Cyberoam’s On-Cloud Management Service Solution
Before Cyberoam deployment, Salam Gaz had CheckPoint in place. According to Mr.
Mohammed, the appliance suffered from regular hardware failures and had limited
functionality for a UTM. Hence, they decided to replace CheckPoint with a more
feature-rich, reliable and affordable UTM appliance. Cyberoam, with its competitive
pricing and the comprehensive set of UTM features, caught their attention. They
purchased Thirty (30) appliances in total and deployed Two (2) of them at their Head
Office in Rabat and the other Twenty Eight (28) in many of their Branch Offices. They
deployed all the appliances in Gateway Mode.
