UTM Email Protection and UTM Web Protection
- EP Barrus’ Checkpoint firewall and Websense web filter needed replacing and they decided to look for a new solution.
- With limited IT resources it was important to find a self-sufficient management application they could trust.
- They first looked at Juniper but found it to be cost prohibitive,
- Sophos UTM Network Protection was set up to conduct packet filtering, Sophos UTM Email Protection handled spam filtering and Sophos UTM Web Protection was used for web content filtering.
- Birch and his colleagues configured both units with some help from their service provider.
- The IT team has saved significant time and effort. They rarely log onto the Sophos UTM 320 Appliance and it runs without IT intervention.
- Productivity is enhanced thanks to web content filtering and the ability to give defined groups appropriate internet access.
