As Australia’s most diversified media and entertainment group, Nine Entertainment uses the web for critical business operations. But its web security solution wasn’t up to the task. It didn’t provide the security or the performance the company needed. With Symantec™ Secure Web Gateway and other Symantec solutions, Nine can ensure consistent, reliable access to the web services users need to do their jobs.
Finding a reliable, high-performance web security solution
From web-based business applications to software as a service to streaming media, Nine Entertainment relies on the web to operate its business. Unfortunately, its existing web security solution struggled to meet the growing need for visibility, security, and performance. Additionally, it lacked centralized policy management, robust user reporting, and rock-solid reliability.
"When we deployed the ProxySGs, we saw an immediate improvement in performance and reliability. Our users had consistent, reliable access to the web services they need to do their jobs."
"With Symantec, it is easier to make sure every employee gets exactly what they need because we can be more granular with access. It is all easier to do with Symantec."
Symantec Secure Web Gateway and other Symantec solutions
Following an evaluation of four appliance-based solutions, Nine selected the Symantec Secure Web Gateway solution and deployed Symantec ProxySG appliances with Symantec WebFilter at 10 hub sites across Australia, Southeast Asia, and New Zealand. At its headquarters, the IT team deployed the Symantec Director platform and Symantec Reporter for centralized management, configuration, and reporting. By deploying the ProxySG appliances at its internet gateways, Nine Entertainment also participates in the cloud-based Symantec WebPulse™ service, a community of 70 million users that provides on-demand security intelligence about new web content, including malware and other web-based threats.
