Cymtec Case Study
Cymtec Systems provides tools that help companies optimize network performance and fulfill the rigorous audit and compliance standards imposed on today’s organizations. Known for ease of deployment and simplicity of operation, as well as the industry’s lowest Total Cost of Ownership (TCO), Cymtec’s plug-and-play product line, including Cymtec Scout® and Cymtec Sentry® provide traditional Intrusion Detection (IDS), as well as the unique visibility and control necessary to manage today’s remote and branch office environments
Challenges & Goals
Cymtec Systems wanted a monitoring and reporting tool which would troubleshoot and optimize the network traffic.
They wanted a team who can develop a network monitoring web application which can collaborate with the intrusion detection network appliance and that could capture each and every packet that flows through it and analyse each packet to perform actions.
When we boarded the client, we had to face the following challenges
- 1. To understand the appliance behavior.
- 2. To set up the appliance in the local environment.
- 3. To perform a few actions ( detect, pass, monitor, report) without loss or delay of packets in the real-time network traffic.
Our dedicated developers were successful in overcoming the challenges, with their technical expertise and design thinking.
Our technical experts understood the details of this project and started working on the priority list.
We successfully implemented high performing real-time monitoring and reporting solution. This solution was driven by features like network statistic tracking, a robust reporting utility to assist with web usage reports and enhanced threat detection capabilities. While monitoring, the solution captured every packet flow and blocked the threat when detected.
With Cymtec Sentry appliances in headquarter and branch office locations, are able to reducing downtime, troubleshoot more efficiently and ensure the correct use of network assets.
Cymtec Scout was another application hosted on the cloud that provides an enterprise-class IDS for simple, scalable and compliance support. This application could continuously acknowledge if any intrusion takes place on the network. We deployed Cymtec Scout in less than 15 minutes.
Overall, it improved the visibility and control over non-business related activities on the network.
