City of Torhout behind a robust firewall

Torhout is known for tasty bier, beautiful castles and never-ending cycle paths in the ‘Ommeland’ region near Bruges. But it is now also known for a modern urban infrastructure with more than 150 employees. And all of these people surf intensively on the Web, receive and send e-mails, and use the Intranet. In order to secure this traffic, the City of Torhout opted for a firewall solution from Nextel.

CHALLENGES

  • Obtaining a clear overview of the surfing behaviour 
  • Selective blocking of websites or specific parts of these websites
  • Optimal use of available bandwidth

SOLUTIONS

  • Firewall with failover option in order to achieve a redundant solution
  • Comprehensive reporting facilities
  • Virus check and immediate blocking of suspicious websites. 
  • Permanent support during and after the installation.

BENEFITS

  • Maximum protection of switch between intranet and Internet.
  • Comprehensive adaption options and expansion options for the future.
  • Content filtering, intrusion prevention and virus scan integrated in one solution
 

Thanks to the personal contact and the input from Nextel, we also discovered possibilities that we were not aware of.
