Cloud security and increasing connectivity

IT is an important element in Sonneveld's business operations. The production process is continuously monitored and the IT environment provides support for the sales and administration departments. Due to high dependence on available connectivity and the increasing use of cloud-based applications in particular, Sonneveld needed an extensive analysis of their IT security and network infrastructure through an IT risk assessment.

Firewall management: a business challenge

During the risk assessment stage the network infrastructure, configuration and firewall software were analyzed by Nomios Germany cyber security specialists. Among other findings, an upgrade of the firewall software and configuration was required. After carrying out this review, it became apparent that maintaining the Firewall software and ensuring the the configuration was updated and optimized on a constant basis was a unnecessarily time-consuming process for Sonneveld. With the Managed firewall services from Nomios Germany, this issues has been solved. Nomios Germany's security specialists manage and monitor in real-time all the firewall configuration and activities.
