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.

Uncontrolled Surfing

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.

VPN Connectivity

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.

The business benefits were as follows:

  • Firewall

    Cyberoam firewall is ICSA and Checkmark certified - provides granular access controls over Internet traffic and the network resources. It inspects content in network packets to ensure that unauthorized traffic does not pass into or out of the intranet.

    Snowhite users are given controlled access to network and internet resources, ensuring that no security loopholes are left open.

  • Web URL Filter

    Cyberoam’s 82+ category strong Web Content filtering technology kept the organization’s internet resources productively focused. Mr. R.M. Pandian, Sr. Application Specialist at Snowhite said, “Being able to choose what sites to allow access to and what sites to block was an essential feature for Snowhite when deciding on a Web filtering product.” The Content filtering features ensure that all P2P and Instant Messengers are blocked and that there is no breach of data.

  • Virtual Private Network Connectivity

    Cyberoam’s IPSec VPN solution bridged the geographical distances between the organization’s branch and head offices. This now ensures that the user can connect securely from any location and use the organization’s resources. Highly encrypted traffic enforced security over the Internet and ensures that no malware sneaks through.

  • To Enclose

    “Cyberoam is just another switch or security device which visibly adds value to an organization. Its features make Cyberoam to be among the top recommended solution for any organization”, said Mr. Pandian.
