SonicWALL has announced a new project with Al-Safeer Group of Companies to provide the conglomerate with advanced business continuity solutions for its Hypermarkets Division. Al-Safeer purchased 34 SonicWALL TZ 170 Wireless appliances and one SonicWALL PRO 3060 appliance from the data protection and network, Web and email security solutions provider. The 34 appliances were deployed at Al-Safeer ‘point of sale’ (POS) locations across the UAE and the PRO 3060 appliance, deployed at the corporate headquarters, connects the Wide Area Network and acts as a gateway managing security, traffic and content. P. Jayaraj, IT manager at Al-Safeer Group of Companies, said: “To keep ahead of the curve in a highly competitive retail environment as is currently the in the UAE, we required a solution that provided for rapid and secure POS data transfer to our headquarters for sales analysis and inventory purposes. “SonicWALL’s solution has enabled us to build a secure VPN tunnel to each of our hypermarket locations around the country, all controlled from a single appliance which acts as an integrated gateway for threat and content management.” Shahnawaz Sheikh, SonicWALL regional sales manager Middle East and Africa, said: “Network administrators can create multiple zones of access - for wired and wireless workers as well as guest wireless users - offering an unprecedented level of control without compromising network security.” “The TZ 170 Wireless appliances combined with the PRO 3060 appliance provide for an ideal solution for companies that need rock solid network protection and fast, secure VPN access for remote employees at a cost-effective price point.”
