J. B. & Brothers secures its IT infrastructure with ESET Endpoint Antivirus
MUMBAI, India, May 23, 2016: ESS Distribution, a leading provider of IT security solutions in Indian market, along with its trusted partner Amity Infosoft Pvt. Ltd. announced closing deal with J. B. & Brothers, one of the leading manufacturers and exporter of diamonds. The IT infrastructure of J. B. & Brothers Pvt Ltd having more than 1500 employees in India and internationally is now secured by ESET Endpoint Antivirus. The company switched to ESET enterprise security solution for endpoints’ protection from another security vendor since it was facing issues with systems’ performance. Company opted for award-winning ESET Endpoint Antivirus product known for having very low impact on the system and the network.
“We kept several criteria in mind while choosing the endpoint solution. The main criteria was that the product should not affect system performance while providing best possible security from malware and cyber-attacks and consumption of resources should not be heavy. Another criterion was that the product should have been a bit more global than the one we used to have before,” Kunal Jariwala, Technical Head at J. B. & Brothers says.
Headquartered in Gujarat, J. B. & Brothers today has its own manufacturing facility for Cutting & Polishing Diamond in Surat as well as sales and marketing offices in Mumbai, Hong Kong, Dubai, Antwerpen, Tel Aviv and marketing associates in Los Angeles, USA. As any fast growing company having complicated internal processes and working across several time zones, J. B. & Brothers had been struggling to keep the right balance between security and infrastructure performance. The new security product deployed by Amity Infosoft and ESS Distribution, the official distributor of ESET products in Indian market, could meet this requirement.
“ESET delivers the fastest, most effective and most proactive antivirus software solution to eliminate viruses, spyware, adware, worms, trojans, rootkits and other malware before they attack your system without slowing down performance,” Mayank V. Patel of Amity Infosoft Pvt Ltd said.
According to Kunal Jariwala, ability to get instant support for ESET Endpoint Antivirus was another reason for company’s IT department to opt for this security solution. According to J. B. & Brothers Technical Head, while few technical issues arose during implementation process due to specific requirement of J. B. & Brothers’ IT infrastructure, and some of them remain to be solved, the deployment of new endpoint security solution was overall painless for the company. Moreover, company’s employees could feel the changes immediately.
“Our employees are now able to exchange files and open them faster. They feel that the technical team has improved something. Of course, they may not have any idea about new antivirus and other details, but they are able to experience changes,” Kunal Jariwala says.
Commenting on successful end of the implementation process, Zakir Rangwala, Country Head at ESS Distribution, said, “The first experience that users have with security product eventually leads to the choice. Both consumers and IT Heads at the enterprise sector want solid, reliable and user-friendly security solutions that can provide quality protection from malware as well as the minimum impact on the performance. That is what ESS Distribution offers in the market. We have been promoting ESET consumer and enterprise solutions in the country since 2007.
