Business Challenge

  • Previously, Continental staff used nodes on the various continents to access the Internet. This was both expensive and consumed a significant share of the bandwidth available for internal communications.

Technology solution

  • Using Sophos UTM they have been able to decentralize Internet access points worldwide.
  • Solution partner ENTIRETEC provides all of the high-security Internet access points as a managed service with Unified Threat Management.

Business results

  • The Continental Group now enjoys significantly better performance.
  • The decentralized approach has eliminated the structures and costs associated with a centralized one–instead technology is deployed and costs are incurred only where they are needed.
  • Thanks to the distributed Internet links Continental is now far more flexible when they need to expand locations
