German packaging and materials manufacturer deploys Clavister to secure global IT infrastructure
2 August 2016 - The Marbach Group, a leading large packaging materials manufacturer headquartered in Germany, has deployed firewalls from Clavister, a leader in high performance security solutions, to secure its global IT network.
Working with its German IT consultancy and system integrator Stainczyk & Partners, Marbach has deployed Clavister firewalls in High Availability (HA) clusters, implementing two highly scalable appliances in a multistage installation at every Marbach site.
The Clavister solution was selected as it delivers robust, high performance and scalable security, enabling Marbach to respond to its changing requirements according to the company’s needs. The solution can expand to meet the company’s growth and is capable of securely delivering 14 x 1GbE Ethernet interfaces. In addition, the IT tem can manage the entire firewall estate via the central management platform Clavister InControl.
"In addition to the good price-performance ratio and the easy management of the Clavister appliances we were impressed by the wide range of update options," said Gregory Dunica, Head of IT Marbach. "The Clavister solution offers excellent scalability via the Software Subscription which enables us to utilise additional product license updates to meet any future performance increases we require. This enables us to multiply the VPN, IPSec or plaintext throughput without additional investment. We have been very impressed by the expertise and support that we have received from both Stainczyk & Partners and Clavister in providing technical assistance."
Jim Carlsson, Clavister CEO, commented: “The German market is critical to our growth plans and we are delighted that we are establishing our credentials in Germany with deployments such as Marbach. It is a testament to the quality of our solutions that the Marbach Group has deployed them to secure their global IT network. As cyber-criminals increasingly target the data that businesses hold, robust, scalable, high performance, high availability security solutions will be key to ensuring that the integrity of networks is maintained.
