Environment: About 1,700 clients connected with 900 concurrent users
Solution: Sophos UTM 525 with Sophos SSL Clients

Business Challenge

  • SAP Language Services needed a cost-effective way to enable their translation agencies to connect to the SAP network.
  • They needed a simple solution that they could manage centrally as many of their agencies had limited technical knowledge, which meant small issues, like the cleaning lady accidentally pulling a plug out of the VPN router, could take weeks to fix.

Technology solution

  • Their two main requirements were hardware independence and ease of use.
  • They also needed quick and easy scalability in order to flexibly integrate freelancers into projects.
  • After short-listing several solutions and conducting extensive testing, they chose Sophos UTM.
  • Key factors in their decision were the user-friendliness of the Sophos UTM and its attractive price-performance ratio.

Business results

  • SAP Language Services has cut their costs by 50% thanks to Sophos SSL Client’s simple installation and configuration.
  • They have reduced third party and personnel expenses by at least 30%.
  • They have also made significant time and productivity savings as it now only takes two days to connect external service providers, rather than the previous four weeks.
