Ultimate Reliability Achieved through Multi-layered Security Solution

One of the most important assets for any enterprise is business information, and in this also lies the key to sustained business growth and success. In today's world where a business deal can be concluded with just a "click", enterprises are exposed to tremendous risk of information leakage and loss of data if there is no effective IT security system in place. Greyland Trading Limited develops forward-looking strategies for corporate IT security.

Greyland is a renowned inflatable product manufacturer. With business throughout the world, email-borne attacks from frequent customer communication poses a potential threat to the company. "Security is undoubtedly our top priority. Spam and junk emails exploit hardware resources and consume a great deal of network energy. In a typical case, hundreds of in-bound emails cram our mail server and we have to spend an extra 30% of our resources to fight the virus and spam attacks by filtering the system manually, impacting strongly on our system operation," said Eric Ng, Senior Operations System Manager of Greyland Trading Limited.

Greyland used to have several application-based security software packages in place. However, the manually programmed update schedule failed to put up layers of barriers against cyber attack. Greyland wanted to build a strong security infrastructure in order to tighten its network protection.

The Multi-layered Security Solution Value

As a long-term Greyland technology partner, WTT came up with a sophisticated multi-level security solution for Greyland that strengthened the system in different areas. For the network, WTT selected Juniper Networks Secure Services Gateway 5 (SSG 5) to protect its WAN and high speed internal networks while extending the platform return on investment through high levels of system and interface modularity.

Traffic flowing in and out of the office can be protected by a complete set of Universal Threat Management (UTM) security features including Stateful firewall, IPSec VPN, as well as Antivirus, Anti-spam, and Web filtering.

WTT's PC Secure was installed at the client's site to guard against viruses, worms, and Trojans intruded through email, web-browsing, and external devices including CD-ROMs, flash drives, and removable disks. It can automatically detect and remove spyware and rootkits secretly installed on PCs. With 24/7 security overview and reporting, as well as WTT's professional service support, PC Secure provides Greyland with a powerful and effective security solution.

To address the constantly evolving security threats, Mirapoint RazorGate® RG100 was deployed on the mail server to improve security by using multiple scanning engines for defense against viruses and spam. RG100 delivers unparalleled multi-layered protection through its patented RazorGate® MailHurdle connection management technology that is capable of blocking up to 80% of threats at the network edge before they can waste network bandwidth, storage, processor, and administration resources.

“We have developed a close working relationship with WTT and have been using their reliable communication solutions, including voice, Dedicated Internet Access (DIA), VPN, and other value-adding services for many years. We then approached WTT for a well-planned security solution when need arises," added Mr. Ng. "The new security system was established within a month. We are impressed with WTT's strong know-how in network security and its ability to perform a meticulous analysis of our security needs prior to designing a cost-effective yet powerful multi-layered security solution."

Security Enhancement Achieved

The newly established security solution reduces spam and virus intrusion by 95% which greatly streamlines IT management and increases operational efficiency. Greyland has been able to relocate its resources to other critical functions and focus on its core business development.

After the successful deployment of this security solution, Greyland plans to work with WTT on data centre hosting solution so that its web application can cope with the increased demand for fast and secure customer and vendor communication.

"Locating a trustworthy partner who is well-versed in information and communications technology is not easy, we are glad to have found one," added Mr. Ng.
