Medical practice increases gateway security with single box appliance

Hook, Hampshire – 15th October 2002, HarrierZeuros, a provider of information security and data management services, announced today that it has successfully implemented a gateway security solution for Taw Hill Medical Practice. The solution, which includes consultancy and training, will enable Taw Hill Medical Practice to protect itself from malicious attacks more effectively.

Based in Swindon, Taw Hill Medical Practice has always been an advocate of technology that ultimately allows them to provide a better service to their patients. In recognising that more sophisticated external threats to the network were starting to emerge Taw Hill Medical Practice decide to upgrade its security infrastructure to include Symantec Gateway Security.

“We were attracted to the Symantec product as it provide everything needed for gateway security in a single box,” comments Richard Wilson, IT Manager of Taw Hill Medical Practice. “We have less than one hundred users so being able to manage anti-virus, content filtering, firewall and intrusion detection in one appliance is a great saving on my time and resources.”

In addition to the implementation, HarrierZeuros provided Taw Hill Medical Practice with consultancy services to ensure the configuration suited their needs and to explain some of the design principles of gateway security. Further training was also provided for Taw Hill Medical Practice at HarrierZeuros’ training centre for them to gain a deeper understanding of the product and how it works.

Richard Wilson continues, “Some of the technology was new to us, so the additional advice and training that HarrierZeuros provide for us was invaluable. We only have a small IT team and being self sufficient is important to ensure we keep costs down. Thanks to HarrierZeuros passing on their knowledge and expertise we can be confident that we can continue with our ethos.”

Richard Davis, Sales Director of HarrierZeuros says, “It’s good to see smaller organisations acting so positively in response to emerging threats, rather than taking the “it wont happen to us” attitude that is still prevalent in many organisations today. The single box appliance from Symantec is ideal for small scale deployment and we are sure that companies will quickly realise that it offers many additional benefits over traditional point solutions.”
