Business Challenge

  • Register was having issues balancing their Internet traffic. Because they send around large files such as blueprints and site plans, link balancing was the main concern.
  • They also needed to ensure critical data was given priority over less important file transfers.

Technology solution

  • Register chose Sophos UTM over products from Barracuda because Sophos would be able to meet all their needs with one appliance.
  • It also allows them to simply add subscriptions as and when new functionality is needed, such as Spam Filtering, Web Filtering and Wireless. This made the administrative, as well as initial purchase price, lower.

Business results

  • The improved balancing has allowed Register to deliver on promises and maintain their commitment and reputation of excellence without worrying about network security.
  • The company has used the Sophos IDS feature to eliminate malware.
  • The content management feature ensures employees are more productive.
  • They have also begin using features such as the SSL VPN to connect remote employees.
