Beijing-Shanghai Express Railway needed a solution to reinforce their network security with solid protection against Internet attacks such as viruses, worms, Trojans, and phishing. They also needed to collect sales and other operational data on a daily basis from the train stations along the 1,318-kilometre (819 mi) long railway. Clavister security gateways with centralized management tools were chosen for the task. The high-performance gateways feature redundant multi-link technology for future expansion.
