Northridge found their Cisco firewall difficult to configure and manage. So they switched to Sophos UTM, whose user-friendly interface lets them manage the product in-house. In doing so, they have saved both time and money, plus they can now provide safe, reliable wireless access to hundreds of visitors each week. Download now

- Northridge needed to protect both its users and also their confidential data. However budget challenges mean they need to handle as much of their day-to-day administration themselves as possible.
- They spent a lot of time and resources managing their Cisco firewall, and they still lost substantial available bandwidth.
- Northridge also wanted to provide secure wireless web access to meet the needs of their users in today’s BYOD world.
- Northridge evaluated solutions from Sonicwall, but selected Sophos UTM and Sophos Endpoint Protection – Advanced.
- After seeing how the Sophos Wireless Access Points are centrally managed through Sophos UTM, they also deployed seven units around the campus, enabling them to offer secure wireless access.
- Through switching to Sophos, Northridge has simplified and unified their security management, and they can handle nearly all of it themselves in-house. This has saved them considerable time, which they consider “the most valuable resource”.
- They have also made real cost savings – a precious resource for any non-profit organization.
