People Interactive, a part of People Group and a WestBridge backed company was looking to deploy a guest management solution which can support user and application based QoS policy. In addition to the above required solution, they were also using a stand-alone Firewall to manage and safeguard their employees. Their engineering and IT team enquired WiJungle to understand whether if their unified network security gateway can fulfill their guest management requirement. They held a remote technical session to learn the complete functionalities offered with the product. Session gave them a realisation that WiJungle can unitedly serve all of their needs through a single appliance. Taking in consideration the cost and challenges involved in managing multiple appliances, they opted to change the existing solutions and incorporated WiJungle for three different offices.
Following are the purposes that WiJungle is fulfilling seamlessly in three of their offices:
Web Server ProtectionTI Next implemented user based authentication & authorization for their staff to govern internet. In parallel they configured MAC and IP based policies to give internet access to surveillance cameras & EPABX.
Network & Interface ManagementIt facilitated TI Next to establish Port Forwarding Connection, create NAT Rules, IP-MAC Bind, DNS Forwarding, Static Routes and bypass sites etc. This also provided the option to manage all physical and logical interfaces individually.
Virtual Private NetworkTI next needed the Site-Site VPN to connect to old Treasure Island Mall. Using IPSec VPN the secured tunnel was established to solve the purpose. In addition, admin can also use SSL, PPTP and L2TP VPNs if required.
Content FilteringAs WiJungle is a UTM + Hotspot Gateway so the ability to block pre-defined and manually created categories of Websites, IP, Port, Keyword and Applications made it easy for TI Next to restrict their mall staff from putting their time to unwanted content.
Bandwidth ManagementBandwidth management feature to limit data and speed usage along with the time cuts down the unnecessary consumption of resources. This helped them to allot different speed, data and FUP usage policies to user systems based on their profile.
Load BalancingThe need to balance traffic through two different ISP links made it easy for TI Next to have higher uptime. The Active-Active and Active-Backup mode gave them the flexibility to configure it as per their way.
Anti-Virus with Ransomware ProtectionWiJungle's Gateway Anti-Virus gave them the option to scans packets on HTTP, HTTPS, SMTP, SMTPS, IMAP, POP ports and blocks the file based on their type. Large database of more than 25000+ default signatures with automatic update via cloud ensured the greater security. Storage of threat logs with action helped them with better analysis.
Anti-SpamMail protection being the need of hour, Anti-Spam module of WiJungle does the inbound and outbound scanning of packets, real time white/black listing of IP & domain with MIME header check.
Intrusion Prevention SystemIDPS module to detect and prevent attacks from within and outside the network. Along with auto updating feature of default signatures, admins can also create their custom IPS signatures & Rules and set the action to allow or drop packets.
Reporting & MonitoringThe inbuilt storage facility to keep surfing logs for a period of 1 year along with search-ability made it easy to handle tracking. Packet Capturing and IP summary features helped them to keep a closed eye on the source and destination of traffic. In depth reports of internet, session and system gave them a concrete picture of real time situations..
