StoneGate VPN protects legal data.

Stonesoft Networks : 11 March, 2008  (Application Story)
British legal company McArdles has installed a Stonesoft network security solution to connect its four UK offices over a secure Virtual Private Network (VPN).
Purchased through ITPS, a leading reseller specialising in business security, Stonesoft's StoneGate is a firewall and VPN solution that allows McArdles to securely connect its offices and to provide mobile workers secure access to the network. The firewall ensures perimeter defence with in-built intrusion detection.

John Birch at ITPS stated: "We were very pleased at finalising the deal with McArdles. We have seen a great deal of interest in Stonesoft's products from the financial and legal services recently, and are keen to work with them again in the future."

Incorporating Stonesoft's patented Multi-Link Technology, the combined VPN/Firewall solution offers multiple parallel Internet connections and VPN connections across multiple ISP lines, ensuring business continuity and high availability for users on the network. Server load sharing and health monitoring intelligence for servers also help to ensure optimum availability and performance of the network and business services.

Ash Patel, UK and Ireland country manager for Stonesoft said, "The importance of maintaining a secure flow of information can never be overstated, especially within the legal sphere. We are very happy with ITPS in securing the work at McArdles and providing them with the StoneGate Firewall, which enables organisations to possess a degree of network security and business continuity not previously possible."

Graham Clayton, Finance Manager for McArdles said, "We reviewed a number of different security and VPN vendors but Stonesoft was the only vendor that had the combination of security, connectivity, reliability and ease-of-use that we require as a growing legal firm. Not only does StoneGate provide enterprise class security, vital in our line of business, but its load balancing functionality also offers higher resilience and excellent connectivity to the Internet, which is core to how we conduct business and share information. StoneGate was also easy to configure and has a straightforward management console which makes life easier for our IT department.'

McArdles now operates with a centralised computing and data management infrastructure, and inter-site connectivity with a private network for data and voice communication. The gateway to the Internet for email and Web services is managed centrally at the head office in Darlington with the added functionality of reports on user Web activity.
