Business Need : LEVANT symbolizes the masterworks of the world’s famous makers of modern, classic and quality jewelry. Based in Dubai, the company has emerged as a high quality jewelry retailer and fashion boutique with over 14 branches in the UAE. Despite being the fastest growing jewelry chain in the UAE, the company was looking for improved connectivity between their branches and head-office. The existing infrastructure was based on open VPN (Virtual Private Network) to send and receive data across shared or public networks. The model was quite unstable and insecure with no control over the internet bandwidth and connectivity with the head office. Levant IT Team was looking for a solution that would provide them robust security features along with centralized management and real-time reporting.
Solutions Offered : Prologix accurately identified the gaps in critical security faced by the client and offered connectivity along with robust security from SonicWALL. NSA 250M, the high performance and modular Next-Generation Firewall offered the Head Office in-depth security, application control and visualization, VPN, Distributed network security, Gateway Anti-Malware and Intrusion Prevention. The enhanced features include SSL VPN remote access, powerful reporting through Dell SonicWALL Analyzer software, Secure Network Optimization and Business continuity for protection against hardware or software failover.
TZ 105, the most secure Unified Threat Management (UTM) firewall for retail deployments was installed at 14 various showrooms of Levant across UAE. This deployment provided intelligent protection from threats, business-class performance to users, advanced networking features along with configuration flexibility in an affordable desktop appliance that’s easy to set up, operate and manage by the clients’ IT team. The installation also delivered the proven, most effective intrusion prevention, anti-malware and content/URL filtering, along with the broad mobile platform support for various devices used by the staff and visitors over the network.
Benefits : This deployment made it easy for the head-office to monitor all the branch networks and the security system. With a centrally monitored and seamless security system, Levant saved overheads of hiring additional manpower and CAPEX in IT Infrastructure. The Sonicwall solution has created greater administrative and operational efficiency in the company.
Levant is delighted with the service and the solution Prologix provided. As the chain grows, we will be providing security solutions for all the newly opened branches across the Middle East.
