"Sophos UTM is a stable, reliable system that eliminates at the gateway all the problems usually encountered by system administrators. And, with Sophos RED, all my remote sites are now accessible from a unified management interface. We are thoroughly satisfied.”
Wolf-Malko Zimmermann, IT Manager, Municipality of Hassloch.

Fact file

Sector: Local Government
Location: Hassloch, Germany
Environment: 125 PCs located across ten sites, plus mobile and home workers.
Solution: Sophos UTM
Sophos RED

Business Challenge

  • Data throughput on the connection between the remote sites and central office was too low to enable web traffic to run via the central office.
  • Directly connecting all sites to the Internet would make it impossible to guarantee compliance with the municipality’s security policy.

Technology solution

  • Hassloch had been successfully using Sophos UTM to secure their network since 2003. In 2009 they added Sophos RED module to enable secure connection with branch offices.
  • Sophos RED acts as a virtual Ethernet cable to the central gateway, connecting all remote sites securely and enabling central management of all locations.
  • Hassloch was particularly impressed by the ease of use and the low price without recurring costs.

Business results

  • The Internet connection to the remote sites is faster and more stable.
  • Security policies are configured centrally and implemented reliably.
  • There has been a noticeable reduction in the amount of administrative effort required each week.
