ON THE LOOKOUT FOR A UNIFORM SECURITY ENVIRONMENT
The company wanted to secure its local area network as well as its webmail and Citrix XenApp from unauthorized access. Additionally, BEST provides remote support and maintenance to its customers and experienced a lot of difficulties with unstable VPN connections at the customer’s site. Furthermore, the company needed to overcome troubles that arose with the different systems and infrastructure installed at the customer’s end in order to set up remote online support and integrate the machinery into its existing ERP system.
“We explored the market for a security solution that could fulfill all of our requirements and would enable us to create a uniform environment for our customers, service engineers, employees and resellers alike”, says Geert Cuppens, System Administrator at BEST. “VASCO’s product portfolio fully matched our security needs and prerequisites.”
