Professional Services Firm EMD Chooses AppGate for Controlling and Securing the Flow of Business Critical Information

Share Article

EMD, a leading professional services firm based in Malta, has installed the network access control solution from AppGate Network Security to ensure that client information and communications remain confidential and secure when staff are working away from the office. EMD chose to implement AppGate's technology because it provides a comprehensive, easy to use and cost effective solution in one box, delivering the security, access control and tracking functionality necessary to protect business critical information whilst also allowing staff to work seamlessly from any location.

Information security is important for all organizations and EMD shows how AppGate enables businesses of all sizes to benefit from the highest levels of security whilst also providing a cost effective and flexible solution.

As a result of EMD's significant growth over recent years, controlling and securing the flow of information has become more challenging as client data has become dispersed across different locations while mobile computing has increasingly enabled staff to work remotely. The AppGate solution provides all the functionality necessary for enabling secure remote access through strong authentication, authorization, encryption and access control, and it does so in one unified solution so Appgate's customers such as EMD do not have to deal with the issues involved in integrating various point products. AppGate also provides for the central management and control of user access, so EMD has been able to cut its security management costs by consolidating resources which were previously located in several sites. Full tracking of user access to information resources also facilitates compliance with regulatory requirements.

"Effective information security is not a luxury - we deem it to be an obligation towards our clients", says Andrew Cauchi, EMD's ICT Services Director. "AppGate's technology was an obvious choice for us. It means we can completely secure our network and can do it in a user friendly and low maintenance way."

"We are very pleased that EMD has chosen the AppGate solution for controlling all access to all data from any location", says Fredrik Norén, Regional Manager Southern Europe. "Information security is important for all organizations and EMD shows how AppGate enables businesses of all sizes to benefit from the highest levels of security whilst also providing a cost effective and flexible solution."

As always AppGate security servers build on existing proven functionality such as:

  •     Application Layer Firewall
  •     Mobile & Fixed VPN
  •     Granular & Role based Access
  •     End-point Security Control
