Having just finished a project to encrypt one of our customers devices, we wanted to share the success of that and also some of the peripheral benefits that have arisen from using EgoSecure and Sophos solutions.
Scope of the project
Our customer is a market leading provider of asbestos removal and demolition services in the UK with a workforce of over 400 people across more than 10 locations and many staff and contractors working regularly in the field.
The original scope of this project was focused on device encryption, but that has become a secondary use now because of the other benefits that the solution is providing.
The analytics functionality of the product provides us with strong insights into how the users are using the network and their devices.
One example of this is that after deploying EgoSecure, our customer identified two machines that were using more than 60% of the network traffic at one office. This was due to Sage50 and the way it continuously reads the .dta files. From this intelligence, they have now moved the location of this to reduce the burden on the site. This aspect was completely unrelated to the original purpose of the product, but has offered great added value to the business.
To round off their solution, our customer also uses EgoSecure’s antivirus (BitDefender) as part of their package. Alongside this, they have also deployed Sophos Intercept X to defend against Ransomware attacks which could otherwise have the potential to seriously disrupt their business.
Demonstrating the value
With the analytics provided by EgoSecure Insight Audit, the customer can drill down into granular details within the IT team for analysis purposes. The team are also using the tool’s graphical functionality of producing graphs and overviews when communicating updates and business value to non-technical users.
In addition to a workforce with fully encrypted devices with full ransomware protection, the customer is able to use their solution to reduce network logjams, and easily communicate the value of the solution to business management and other stakeholders within the organisation.
Because of this, the Group IT Manager said that “I’ve been very impressed with the software and we use it for more than we originally intended. I genuinely feel it’s a great product and at the time we purchased it was unique in the marketplace.”
