Have you ever wondered if vendor case studies are actually solutions to real life issues or if they are stories about compensated organizations using a particular vendor solution? Well, I am here to tell you that I know of at least one case study that is about an organization addressing real-life issues that was featured in an award winning vendor case study. The organization is the company I work for and the case study is about the challenges we faced with replacing an under-performing legacy Frame Relay network with a more efficient and flexible global solution that delivers high availability, remote access, and integrated security. For the record, no compensation was given for being the subject of this vendor case study.
The case study won the 2009 Best Deployment Scenario – VPN/IPSec/SSL and was featured in the Info Security Products Guide. The winning case study and announcement can be found at Manufacturing Company Achieves Security and Performance Goals with Virtela’s Remote Access Services from the Cloud.
See all 2009 Best Deployment Scenarios and Case Studies. This would be a good time to look at these and see if any of the solutions may meet some of the information security needs of your organization. Consider putting the solutions in your 2010 budgets.
