The manufacturer of sensually erotic lifestyle products based in Hannover has been using the Securepoint UTM solution as a central element of its IT security since spring 2014. The company Röder Elektro GmbH accompanied them in this undertaking.
In addition to wanting to improve the IT security situation, the switch was made because of the necessity to use a high-performance content filter with workplace-specific regulations. Furthermore, there existed a need to use several Internet connections with ease, with flexibility and with security and ultimately, on the part of the numerous locations of the company, to round off the requirements with efficient VPN connections whose permanent availability is crucial to the company’s success. The Securepoint UTM solution fulfilled these requirements.
To check the feasibility of the requirement profile, a multi-week test under real conditions, expected to take approximately 4-6 weeks, was agreed with Securepoint GmbH in Lüneburg. In March 2014, the time had come: the Securepoint UTM-Appliance RC200 was put into test operation and extensive tests were conducted with regard to the requirement profile, general performance and stability.
The tests were so successful that JOYDIVISION international AG decided to turn test operation into live use with immediate effect. The Securepoint UTM-Appliance RC200 has been used successfully since May 2014.
Mr. Felix Kloß, internal organisation and resource management at JOYDIVISION explains: “The support employee was very committed at the start of the test phase and worked closely with us well beyond regular working hours. We are very satisfied with the Securepoint firewall. Compared with the old firewall, we notice a significantly higher data throughput when accessing Internet pages. The fact that this firewall is not linked to any backdoor program and that the German data protection regulations apply gives us even more security. VPN clients do not have to be licenced; this was also a matter of expense that strongly influenced our decision to go with a Securepoint solution.”
