On-line Threat Reduction for Atlanta Baseball Team With OpenDNS

OpenDNS : 20 April, 2010  (Application Story)
OpenDNS is supplying the Atlanta Braves baseball team with web security services to protect the team's facilities from web-borne threats
OpenDNS has announced that the Atlanta Braves has deployed OpenDNS's Web security services to protect its multiple-site network from online threats. The Atlanta Braves is one of the most successful baseball teams in recent history, and the longest continuously operating franchise in Major League Baseball. OpenDNS is the world's largest and fastest-growing DNS and cloud security service.

The Braves organization chose cloud-based OpenDNS, in part, for its remote management capabilities. The Braves deployed OpenDNS throughout its organization, which includes a spring training facility in Orlando, FL, minor league teams in Mississippi and Georgia and a facility in the Dominican Republic.

OpenDNS allows effortless enforcement of policies, which are entirely controlled through a single interface over the Web.

Prior to OpenDNS, Braves employees had no malware protection on their network. OpenDNS efficiently and effectively secures the Braves' network from such threats through industry-leading security services and has dramatically reduced the amount of time network operations staff spends managing endpoint security.

Like many other large organizations, an additional driver in the Braves' decision to choose OpenDNS was cost. Appliance-based solutions and their associated and ongoing management fees can cost organizations a significant amount annually for six locations. At a fraction of the cost, OpenDNS saves the Atlanta Braves substantial budgetary dollars, while providing best-available security.

'Not having to travel to each physical location to deploy, then manage a filtering appliance saves the organization a significant dollar amount when man hours, shipping charges and travel expenses are considered,' says Sherry Millette, Braves Director of Information Technology. 'We tested OpenDNS initially with only a few users. We were so happy with the results that we fast tracked it to production.'
