As many other companies, Wendre works with important data that needs to be protected from different attacks.
“We had some security incidents and constant performance issues with internet connections and Wi-Fi in the past. We used Range of Unify and Ruckus devices for Wi-Fi and WatchGuard XTM500 as a Firewall what was replaced with Firebox M440. Now we have proved this was a right choice.” – says Erkki.
Choosing WatchGuard Technologies
Erkki says that one of the reasons why Wendre AS migrated to WatchGuard was an excellent price and performance ratio. Along with that, WatchGuard provides easy and centralized management options and a fully featured security bundle.
Before the migration to WatchGuard, the company went through some stages of integration:
“We audited situation we had and after the analysis decided to implement solution, capable of handling current problems and much more if needed”, explains Erkki.
In addition to that, Wendre is going to standardize Wi-Fi solutions within their group of companies and they have already moved on with WatchGuard Access Points.
