Business Challenge

  • The cost of maintaining their widely dispersed network using Multiprotocol Label Switching (MPLS) with Cisco Routers was becoming prohibitive.
  • The network was becoming slow.
  • They also needed to be able to prioritize urgent medical traffic for bandwidth.

Technology solution

  • After evaluating NeuroScience Consultants’ needs and researching several options including Barracuda and Cisco’s ASA and PIX appliances, Sophos Partner RemoteWorks recommended the Sophos UTM appliance.

Business results

  • By switching to VPN overlay with Sophos UTM, NeuroScience Consultants saves over $100,000 a year in networking costs.
  • They can now give priority to medical traffic on the network simply and easily.
  • And as an added bonus, Sophos UTM has lead to a decrease in malware on the network, saving a tremendous amount of time that was previously spent cleaning it up.
