Santa Clara, Calif.–(PR Newswire)– Hillstone Networks, a leading provider of network security solutions, today announced it is fully securing FEDCO’s network as their business and customer base accelerate. Running the risk of prolonged outages in business-critical infrastructure was not an option for FEDCO, who looked to Hillstone for a security solution that addressed cyber threats, and other challenges including optimized network bandwidth management. Over the years, FEDCO has transformed to 35 exclusive stores in 13 cities in Colombia. It has a virtual store with national coverage across more than 690 delivery destinations. “In recent years, malware threat and DDoS has increased significantly. It became essential to have a robust security solution,” says Luis Alfonso Ribón C., Head of Technology Projects for FEDCO.
Benefits for FEDCO:
- The Hillstone NGFW addressed security and resource management requirements for FEDCO, with Anti-Virus, IPS, Attack Defense, URL filtering, and SSL VPN. It delivers application, user, and content visibility and control, as well as protection against known and unknown cyber threats.
- FEDCO has taken advantage of User-ID and App-ID to segment and control traffic based on roles.
- Hillstone virtual Security Management System allows FEDCO to store logs within the last 3 months and centrally manage their distributed network of firewalls.
“By segmenting traffic, we freed up 30 percent bandwidth for greater utilization and overall productivity,” says Mr. Ribon. “We have a central view of every firewall and can configure each from the HSM templates, managed centrally and pushed to every local box.” “We are thrilled to see FEDCO reap the benefits of our solution,” said Lingling Zhang, SVP of product and marketing at Hillstone Networks. “We are committed to the digital security of our customers’ critical assets, and FEDCO is another happy customer, deploying our solutions in multiple use cases, to address security without hampering business growth.” Read the full case study here.
