Astaro-Greene County Board

The Greene County Board of Developmental Disabilities is an agency that specializes in providing support to those living with mental and physical disabilities and their families. The challenge the agency was facing was that their existing small network was not adequately protected. The organization’s eight users relied on a wireless broadband access point, and a wireless router was the sole form of network protection. This made the network highly vulnerable to all sorts of threats.

The challenge the agency was facing was that their existing small network was not adequately protected. The organization’s eight users relied on a wireless broadband access point, and a wireless router was the sole form of network protection. This made the network highly vulnerable to all sorts of threats. The Greene County Board needed a complete security solution with anti-virus, Web content filtering, intrusion prevention, and reporting features to safeguard their network.

Greene County considered products from SonicWall and Cisco, but decided that the best solution was the Astaro Security Gateway because it was affordable and had all of the features the Greene County agency wanted. The software appliance was easily deployed on one of the agency’s low end desktops.

RReplacing the wireless router with the Astaro Security Gateway has saved the agency roughly five hours per week in monitoring and troubleshooting. The program’s reporting and logging features have cut down on the time that must be spent monitoring network activities. Bandwidth and network usage can be tracked more easily, allowing for swift problem identification and rectification. The graphical user interface makes the program easy to use, and the agency's network specialist has been thoroughly impressed with the reliability of the security solution.
