Network security provider, Fortinet, has announced that the Electricity Authority of Cyprus has deployed Fortinet appliances for end-to-end network security protection. As noted in this recent news release, the Electricity Authority of Cyprus has deployed Fortinet FortiGate appliances as well as FortiMail, FortiWeb, FortiClient, FortiAnalyzer and FortiManager appliances.
“Previously using point solutions from different vendors for its network security infrastructure, the Electricity Authority of Cyprus found the solutions complex to manage as well as having interoperability issues. In addition, the rapidly changing information security landscape was a driving factor in the Electricity Authority of Cyprus looking at a multi-threat security appliance approach to protecting its network.
“Some of the key requirements that the Electricity Authority of Cyprus had for its new security infrastructure included: a redundant Internet connection; stateful firewall protection; two levels of network security protection; the ability to create DMZs between two sets of firewalls; unified threat management functionality including intrusion prevention, antivirus, antispam, Web application protection and endpoint security protection along with the ability to easily manage and analyze data crossing the network.”
