For more than 60 years, Radio Televisyen Malaysia (RTM) has been the national broadcaster of Malaysia, with 36 radio stations and three television stations in Malaysia.
Radio and TV operations merged in 1968 as the new Angkasapuri headquarters was inaugurated. Thus Radio Malaysia and Televisyen Malaysia's identities merged to become Radio Televisyen Malaysia (Radio Television Malaysia, RTM) in 1969.
A second TV station opened also in the same year as its rebranding, and in 1971 Radio Malaysia became the first radio station to broadcast 24 hours a day, nationwide, becoming Rangkaian Nasional (National Network) in the process.
With more than thirty stations all around Malaysia, RTM needed a way to control the internet access of its employees as well as the applications used on RTM network. This was not only to improve their work productivity but also to ensure that there was enough bandwidth for internal server applications and more importantly for streaming media content on RTM own hosted live video platform.
As a renowned media institution, they also needed to protect themselves against external threats and data leakage.
By deploying Sangfor IAM in their HQ and several other radio & TV stations, RTM is now able to control what is happening in the network such as which websites are being visited and which applications are being used. They can control the bandwidth and guarantee enough access for critical applications such as their hosted live video show and stop worrying about possible lag or freeze.
At the same time, employees' work productivity increased thanks to the integrated URL/Applications database. Non-productive activities such as social networking or gaming websites can be restricted according to the rules defined by the IT administrator.
Also thanks to the integrated firewall module, RTM can also protect its network without investing an important amount of money in another security device.
SANGFOR IAM can improve internet connection speed and productivity by establishing a secure, stable, and convenient network.
