About Conservas El Cidacos S.A.
Since founded in 1940, the Spanish company, Conservas El Cidacos (Cidacos ) has been providing the highest quality canned and jarred vegetables. The group’s goal is to achieve complete customer satisfaction, which requires fresh raw materials. The company needed to expand to areas with the best produce to achieve optimal quality. Cidacos International added several locations in Peru and China to their locations in Spain to ensure a fresh supply of raw materials.
The main issue IT Manager Francisco Garcia was struggling with was not the size of the company, but its widely distributed network of warehouses and manufacturing plants. The systems in place (NetScreen, Juniper, Microsoft ISA Server Firewall, and WebSense) worked as intended but evolving requirements concerning management capabilities, Quality of Service, user awareness, and application control required an integrated, more robust solution be put in place.
