Al Tayali rolls out ESET solutions to secure network
Saudi tire distributor selects ESET solutions for performance and small footprint
Al Talayi Establishment, the sole distributor for Bridgestone Tires in Saudi Arabia, has rolled out ESET security solutions to protect its extensive business network.
The company has deployed ESET NOD32 Antivirus and ESET Smart Security (ESS) to provide detection and removal of a range of security threats including viruses, trojans, worms and malware.
The deployment was carried out with Zedan Solutions, the Saudi distribution partner for ADAOX, ESET’s regional business development centre.
Al Talayi has a large network of branches across the Kingdom, connected by leased lines and a VPN, to enable to run its Baan ERP system along with other key applications. The company wanted security software that would offer better performance than their existing solution without consuming too much network or desktop resource, said Eng. Abdullah A R Bawazir, network supervisor, Al Talayi Bridgestone.
“With such an exhaustive IT network in place, a failsafe IT security service was a necessity for us. Robust virus protection is critical to the well-being of our company’s commercial operations, which is almost entirely computer-based. We were not happy with the performance of our previously installed antivirus solution, the lack of adequate support, and the fact that the software consumed high PC and network bandwidth. We were experiencing continuous trouble with infections, complex signature distribution and administering remote networks and hence we decided to replace the security solution,” he said.
“We evaluated various security products available in the market and chose ESET NOD32 and ESS suite for their proactive heuristics diagnostics and the size of the software, which wouldn’t slow down the system’s performance. We also read reviews of different antivirus products performed by independent consumer organizations such as AV Bulletin and AV Comparatives to be sure we were making the right choice. We are more than satisfied with the performance of ESET NOD32 and ESET Smart Security solutions and are also happy with Zedan for their support, speed and professionalism on this deployment,” Bawazir added.
Another factor in the decision to use ESET solutions was that both the ESS suite and ESET NOD32 can be centrally managed, to give automatic updates to users, without causing slowdown or downtime.
“We have witnessed several strategic businesses in the market realizing the need for a security product that secures effectively and is easily managed through a central management console. With such user friendly features on offer, ESET NOD32 as well as ESS have been finding favor with a number of customers across the SMB and enterprise sectors,” said Brian Hawley, general manager at Zedan Solutions.
