<p>Speedibake saves hours of manual network checks and updates with GFI’s security scanning and patch management solution</p>
<p>Speedibake, one of the leading producers of bakery goods in the UK, has chosen GFI LANguard Network Security Scanner (N.S.S.) to proactively secure its network by checking for vulnerabilities and identifying possible security holes. Details of this company’s deployment of GFI’s popular security scanning and patch management solution are featured in a newly issued case study.</p>
<p>Operating in a highly dynamic and competitive sphere, Speedibake recognized that in order to keep ahead, one of the issues it needed to tackle was the growing problem of network security. Stephen Slater, Network Administrator at Speedibake explained, “We felt that we needed to address the issue of Internet/network security and minimize risk by implementing a patch management system.”</p>
<p>Proactive security for the network</p>
<p>Speedibake chose GFI LANguard N.S.S. after having downloaded the trial version of GFI LANguard N.S.S, which enabled them to test the product fully before purchasing. Mr. Slater explained: “We needed the ability to remotely update all of our machines with the latest security patches. We also needed the facility to check the current vulnerabilities of our network.” He added that “after a short evaluation, we found that it met the needs of our organization”. GFI LANguard N.S.S. turned out to be an ideal solution for Speedibake as it proves to be both a means of proactively securing their network and identifying possible security holes, as well as providing a complete patch management solution.</p>
<p>“GFI LANguard N.S.S. is an asset to network administrators with its combination of security scanning and patch management features,” explained Andre Muscat, GFI Product Manager. “Its ability to analyze the operating system and the applications running on your network, and identify possible security holes means that it can alert administrators to weaknesses before a hacker can find them, enabling organizations to deal with these issues before a hacker can exploit them.”</p>
<p>Practical and user-friendly interface</p>
<p>“We found the software was very easy to install and configure”, said Mr. Slater. “The interface is practical and user-friendly and gives the ability to customize scans and filters to our individual needs.” By enabling the company to analyze scan results easily, GFI LANguard N.S.S. enables Speedibake to proactively secure the network.</p>
<p>In addition, GFI LANguard N.S.S served to be a perfect patch management solution for the company by allowing Speedibake to identify and deploy missing patches and service packs network-wide. As a result, Mr. Slater commented that “the implementation of GFI LANguard N.S.S has saved many of hours of manual checks and updates on our network”.</p>
