UK Travel company defends network with SmoothWall

Smoothwall : 17 December, 2009  (Application Story)
Protection from penetration to their corporate network through web portals is being supplied to Traveleads by SmoothWall
Internet security specialist SmoothWall has announced that Traveleads, a UK travel company, is using their software to safeguard web access throughout their corporate network.

Traveleads provide customised travel services to the corporate, sport, media and arts sectors. The company specialises in professional travel management for large groups with complex logistical requirements such as film crews, Olympic teams, symphony orchestras and the European Cup Rugby which is currently underway. Traveleads needed a highly flexible security solution that could deliver time-based web filtering, sufficiently granular reporting and monitoring to identify web trends, top users and peak bandwidth usage periods. The deployment will help the company ensure staff productivity is at a high during this critical time of the year.

Rob Barnes, IT Manager at Traveleads said: "Being in the industry we are in, it's essential that staff have access to key hotel and airline web sites to make bookings and offer the best travel advice to customers. SmoothWall's Guardian web filter allows us to accurately block unsuitable and malicious content without restricting access to essential online resources. Flexible time-based controls have also helped us to restrict users to work based sites during work hours, but open up things like shopping sites before and after."

Tom Newton, Product Manager at SmoothWall added, "For web-reliant organisations, strict surfing bans are quite simply out of the question. Guardian's intelligent technology facilitates a more flexible approach so companies like Traveleads can selectively restrict web access to suit their individual business needs, and operate more efficiently and securely as a result."
