Franklin Synergy Bank Needed a Unified Security Approach
Frankly Synergy needed a unified solution for its network, web, and email security. As the anchor of its network, the firewall needed to go beyond port-based firewalls by providing security and bandwidth controls for applications. Further, given the growing number of locations and remote users, the bank needed site-to-site and client-to-site VPN services that could easily scale, without increasing costs. In addition, the bank needed its firewall to properly segment its network. Its previous WatchGuard firewall was noticeably degrading in performance, and the bank required a significant firewall upgrade.
