Gipe Associates, with more than 50 employees in two offices in Maryland, uses AutoDesk’s AutoCAD products to design plumbing, electrical, and HVAC systems for commercial buildings. Two important, interrelated business goals are protecting its engineering data and keeping its employees productive. Gipe Associates uses Symantec Backup Exec to protect data on its servers, spending only minutes per day to swap tapes. Symantec Protection Suite Enterprise Edition protects Gipe Associates’ systems from spam (which is 93% of incoming email), malware, and other intrusions; no outbreaks have occurred since Symantec was deployed more than a dozen years ago.
