SonicWall in supermarket sweep at Al Safeer Group

Middle Eastern conglomerate Al Safeer Group has deployed the security vendor’s business continuity solutions across its hypermarkets to protect point of sales transactions.

The UAE-based firm, which has interests in retail, furniture, real estate, manufacturing and trading across the GCC, has purchased 34 SonicWall TZ 170 wireless appliances, which have been deployed across its points of sale (POS) locations in the Emirates.

It has also bought a SonicWall PRO 3060 appliance to be used at its headquarters in Sharjah, connecting the wide area network (WAN) and acting as a gateway managing security, traffic and content.

“We required a solution that provided for rapid and secure POS data transfer to our headquarters for sales analysis and inventory purposes,” said Jayaraj Patchu, IT manager at Al Safeer Group of Companies.

“SonicWall’s solution 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.”

“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,” said SonicWall regional sales manager Shahnawaz Sheikh.
