Challenges

UNISZA was looking for a more advanced security solution to protect their network. They figured out that the current solution they are using, which is the traditional firewall known as Unified Threat Management (UTM), was not able to provide full protection of their network against advanced attacks such as SQL Injection, XSS, DOS and etc.

Below are the main challenges faced by their IT management team:
1. UNISZA is hosting a lot of web servers and web services such as student portal, e-learning system, staff portal and etc. The existing solution was not able to provide a comprehensive solution to protect their web servers from advanced security threats.
2. They found out that a lot of PCs in the computer lab and staff PCs were infected with malware and virus.
3. They didn’t have any reporting tools that can display the security status of the network and were not able to know which server was targeted and attacked.
4. The network was often congested, even with a high-speed bandwidth line.
