With eight certified technicians for Palo Alto Networks solutions in Austria, Kapsch is not only the leader in Austria but can also measure up to ICT service partners in Germany as well. With the highest level of certification as a platinum partner, Kapsch BusinessCom has the expertise necessary to combine diverse security disciplines into a single architecture. The entire data stream can therefore be checked in a single scan and informative reporting produced in real-time.
"Modern IT applications offer an increasing number of attack surfaces for malicious access attempts. It is therefore critical to react quickly when necessary", explains Thomas Blaschka, Solution & Alliance Manager at Kapsch. "The solutions from Palo Alto Networks protect all applications. After a single scan of all data streams, they deliver comprehensive, precise reports on possible security breaches – in real-time. This allows IT administrators to intervene before data leaks, compliance problems or even image damage to your company occur".
The next generation firewalls from Palo Alto Networks make application use at the company visible and transparent. Access and usage rights for applications can be individually derived or defined for every user. In contrast to classic stateful inspection firewalls, which only monitor ports and IP addresses, the platforms of Palo Alto Networks are also capable of monitoring both applications and users. This makes it possible to reliably stop attacks at the application level as well.
The Palo Alto Networks solutions can also be used in security-critical areas such as social media. Kapsch also implements Palo Alto Networks firewalls with intrusion prevention and web filters as well as virtual private networks. Confidential data remains protected and cannot reach the outside.
The Chamber of Commerce relies on a Palo Alto Networks solution from Kapsch
Kapsch demonstrates its expertise with Palo Alto Networks solutions to its customers on a daily basis. One particularly well-known customer is the Chamber of Commerce (WKO). A secure and sound IT system to ensure the availability of the Chamber of Commerce portals is of the utmost importance to the organization itself as well as its members. As internal service provider, WKO Inhouse GmbH therefore works under high pressure to keep the network running smoothly. In Kapsch BusinessCom, the Chamber of Commerce found a reliable partner for a new, comprehensive security solution that protects all applications. Clearly organized reports, simple operation and flexible implementation as well as concise, efficient training convinced the Chamber of Commerce to trust in Kapsch.
