Synerzip deploys WatchGuard Technologies solutions to secure its global network

18th March 2014 | By Mouseworld Now Correspondent |

WatchGuard-XCS 280- XCS 580-Security-AppliancesSeattle, March 18, 2014: WatchGuard Technologies, a leading player in integrated security platforms, today announced that Synerzip, a global software-development company, has deployed its Unified Threat Management (UTM) platform featuring the company’s new real-time, security-intelligence- visualization solution, WatchGuard Dimension.

Headquartered in Dallas, USA, Synerzip has a development center in India. The company needed to secure its extensive network and quickly identify usage trends and security threats.

“At any given time, we have more than 1,200 devices connecting to the Internet, including 600+ mobile devices used for applications testing on Android, iOS and Windows platforms. This testing requires the constant sharing of sensitive development information, so it’s imperative that we have UTM solutions in place to secure our network and communications,” said Kiran Ratnakar, IT Manager at Synerzip. “The XTM product, along with the new Dimension solution, not only enable us to maintain a high-performance network, but also gives us an innovative visibility tool that eliminates the need to review hours of log data when managing the network and identifying trends.”

Synerzip uses Dimension’s custom reports during weekly IT meetings to share various aspects of the company’s network health, including Denied Packets and Intrusion Prevention reports. These reports help the company visualize specific trends in real time, so threats can be addressed more quickly and policy created. It also allows IT to compare Synerzip’s overall network health within a 30-day period. Within two months of use, Dimension helped detect threats that the company’s desktop antivirus software missed and it has reduced report-creation time considerably.

Synerzip’s collaborative product development cycle spans geographies and time zones with users who have unfettered access the Web, with no restrictions on downloading and installing software, often causing security concerns. This complex network of testing devices, network services, VPNs, publisher servers, VLANs and more must be high performance and very secure, with a high degree of uptime, so Synerzip can tell a customer, with complete confidence, that its sensitive data and content are protected. To ensure this, Synerzip chose WatchGuard’s cost-effective security solution that provides the centralized network management and protection against a variety of external threats they need.

“Since Synerzip’s primary focus is venture-backed, innovative, technology companies, it is paramount for us to have a robust and secure network environment for software product-development work,” said Hemant Elhence, CEO at Synerzip. “Protecting our clients’ intellectual property is the main reason we made this investment in WatchGuard’s UTM platform.”
