Scope: My client depended on me to design the security system from the ground up within their budget. This meant covering the workstations, laptops, and server room. Challenges: The client had outgrown their original design and was concerned that the old security setup was not meeting their needs. Emails were not filtered enough and staff were constantly reminded to be on their guard. In addition, malware and other threats were targeting the workstations. Not frequently, but enough to be on their radar. Staff was found to be browsing improper websites and the concern was that it was not being actively monitored. This led to concerns regarding the abuse of bandwidth for downloading other material not related to the business. WatchGuard Solutions: The network was redesigned and we selected the Firebox Appliance with Total Security Suite. This included gateway filtering for viruses and malware, website category blocker, firewall active log recording, and file download protection. We also added the VPN aspect for remote workers. RESULT - WatchGuard was implemented with very tight controls. At its best, it protected the network from a ransomware attack. We could not save the infected workstation, but the payload was not delivered, so the servers remained secure and untouched.
