NAP IT INTEGRATES SOLUTION CISCO
And Ensures Efficiency in Ceitec Communication
In order to protect its messages against spam, viruses and other threats types, the National Center for Advanced Electronic Technology (Ceitec) operated with an E-mail Security appliance, until the equipment was losing its warranty and about to be discontinued by the manufacturer. As a company linked to the Science Ministry, Technology and Innovation (MCTI), it was necessary to make a bid to identify the best solution and cost for this equipment exchange.
Nap IT was this competition winner and after technical consulting on the client, suggested the adoption of a solution in the cloud. The proposal was made up of the Gateway E-mail Security IronPort C100v integration, from Cisco, a virtual machine with the anti-spam functions and anti-virus systems, applicable to all e-mail communications.
Extend the warranty on already installed equipment and gain time to implement new, cloud-based Cisco solutions at Ceitec
The first step in the project implementation was the request to extend the use licenses to the installed hardware equipment manufacturer for another 15 days – when the Nap IT team would receive the new solution. This stage represented this project biggest challenge, since it was necessary to give Ceitec certainty that the old supplier guarantee would be extended, allowing the work execution.
COST REDUCTION GUARANTEE
After this phase, the entire deploying process and e-mail migrating to the cloud solution was accomplished in just one day by Nap IT, while Ceitec’s IT staff was responsible for customizing the solution according to your needs.
With the Gateway E-mail Security application, Ceitec had a totally virtual environment advantage, with the maximum of functionalities in execution. And the cost savings guarantee, since the solution in the cloud does not require hardware installed in the customer’s technological environment, resulting in lower power consumption.
In this project, Nap IT offered its services and solutions to Ceitec within the best technology, considering the aligned costs to the budget. More than switching equipment, it considered the benefits that the solution brings to business.
