Snowhite Relies on Cyberoam for its Security
About Snowhite, Retail
Snowhite has established itself as one of the leading showrooms in the Gulf when it comes to men's wear, be it formal or casual. The phenomenal surge of Snowhite with a total of 25 showrooms across the Gulf and the tremendous backing it has earned from discerning customers is ample testimony to its popularity and reach. During the last one decade, Snowhite has set operations in Dubai, Sharjah, Abu Dhabi, Fujairah, Ras-al-Khaimah, Kuwait, Qatar, Oman, Bahrain and lately in Al Ain.
The network covered sensitive information which were under constant threat from external entities. So they needed a strong Firewall solution.

Below mentioned are the challenges faced by Snowhite related to its business activities:
Protecting the Network Edge
Snowhite data servers contain the applications, and data that can be possibly targeted by attacks from external entities. Servers in their networks host client’s information which had to be protected against outside access attempts. They sell apparel to consumers and accept payments via credit cards. Online fraud is also a major concern for them. The organization, therefore, needed a gateway firewall for first layer protection of the entire network.
In absence of a Content Filtering solution the users could surf the Internet unbridled. This laid the company’s network bare to Internet based blended threats. It also hit the productivity of the company as the employees spent productive time, in unproductive surfing.
Snowhite has evolved into an organization with independent networks at remote sites supporting hundreds of users. The primary challenges for Snowhite were to provide access to sensitive data across a more secure and stable VPN.
The Cyberoam Solution
Snowhite looked into a number of security products in order to address their business challenges. The search was on for an appliance which would take care of their all above requirements. So they felt that Cyberoam was the apparent choice. The industry then deployed one (1) 200i and one (1) unit of CR15wi at the head office and Thirty Four (34) units of CR15wi at branch office all over Gulf in Bridge mode.
