Our client, a global TV company, moved sites from central London to Ruislip and Elstree and required a new firewall solution. Our client’s business is heavily reliant on their internet connectivity and downtime could result in huge disruption and financial losses. They rely on the internet 24/7 to download and upload content to and from the network and for there Voice of IP (VoIP) system.
We installed two Fortinet Fortigate 600C firewalls and two Fortinet Fortigate 300C firewalls in a high availability cluster. These firewalls provide the client with UTM (Unified Threat Management), SSL (Secure Sockets Layer), VPN (Virtual Private Network), VPN tunnel connectivity and extensive reporting and logging.
Our client’s network has a high level of protection from external and internal threats. In addition, in the event one firewall is unavailable the secondary device will take over immediately, with downtime of 1 ping. The firewalls are managed as one identity, so there are no issues with access lists or rules with ongoing day to day maintenance.
