GFI Software , a provider of security and management solutions in business networks, said the company Chord Electronics Ltd., a leading manufacturer of professional hi-fi equipment, decided to solve its security and communication challenges with the help Kerio Control i Kerio Connect. The company launched both solutions with the help of IT vendor Invicta Linux, a partner of GFI Software in the UK. “We have been developing a lot lately, and thus we are getting more attention from cyber attackers,” he said Matt Bartlett, CEO of Chord Electronics. “In addition, by expanding our business, we are expanding the scope of our corporate network, which means that more employees need to communicate remotely or from home using different types of devices on multiple platforms.”
For these reasons, the company replaced the original security solution with a hardware device Kerio Control, which helps to effectively protect against viruses and malware, as well as protect the corporate network with the help of firewalls and IPS functionality. A very significant advantage of this solution is the integrated VPN, which allows employees to access the network from home as securely as sitting in the office. This was particularly useful during the recent closure caused by the pandemic. Kerio Connect the solution primarily provides the company with access to emails and calendars at any time, from anywhere and from any device. This is crucial in today’s Chord Electronics work environment, as employees use a wide range of devices, including PCs and Macs, and smartphones running Windows 10, MacOS, Linux and mobile platforms. An important element provided by Kerio Control is the ability to work safely from your own device (BYOD). “Although it is difficult to precisely quantify the advantages of both installed solutions, I can say with certainty that without them the past 12 months would have been much more challenging for us and we would have had a significant financial impact on business,” he added.
