The Civil Police Department of the Federal District was experiencing a lot of heavy and unwanted traffic and a number of external threats to its network, so it desperately needed a solution to protect the VPN, that would give it control over bandwidth and also centrally clean its network of any viruses.
“Network security is essential for our organization due to the highly sensitive nature of the data we hold on our systems. We are also hugely reliant on the applications our network supports as it is essential that our police officers have immediate access to confidential data. Viruses and other external threats put our confidential data at risk and really slow down our network, and this can severely hinder the police from doing their job,” said Reginaldo Pereira Filho, assistant director of IT, Civil Police, Federal District.
In order to address the threats to its network, the police needed effective firewall solutions and intrusion blocking, so it took advice from a trusted, local Clavister IT partner who recommended Clavister’s network security solutions.
Combining flexibility with reliability and high-performance, the Clavister Security Gateways require very little maintenance and are simple to upgrade, administer and manage. They are also robust, resilient and scalable.
Clavister gateways were rolled out to the 41 police stations located in the Federal District. These solutions are specifically designed for organizations with remote offices and deliver deep packet inspection firewalling that keeps the network secure from unauthorized access. They also provides Unified Threat Management (UTM) Services.
A cluster of high availability gateways have been deployed at the police headquarters in Brasilia. These hardware based products deliver high performance and scalability, with built-in VPN connectivity.
