Business Pain-Points

  • Lack of protection against advance and evolving attacks.
    Due to weak protection of existing UTM, Abenson
    experienced ransomware, malwares, advance and
    sophisticated attack which compromised operation of the
    affected departments.  
  • Lack of dynamic security awareness. On top of the
    bothersome advance and sophisticated attacks, their
    UTM focuses on passive-blocking features such as IPS,
    content security, anti-virus, etc. Abenson’s IT team had
    difficulty in identifying potential risk & danger on their
    network and business assets. 
  • Lack of secured and stable link connectivity. Operations
    of Abenson are centralized yet have unsecured
    connectivity between each site, increasing risk of leaking
    critical information in-between sites. Therefore they had
    security concerns.
  • Hard to manage internet access. End user access control
    (i.e. proxy, video streaming and downloading) for
    applications and websites could not be blocked easily.
