Case Study - Isapa Importação e Comercio Ltda

Auto and Bicycle Distributor Rides with WatchGuard for Security


For over 56 years, Isapa Importação e Comercio Ltda has been the largest importer of major and exclusive bicycle and auto parts. Currently with five locations across Brazil, Isapa offers six exclusive brands for the widest variety of domestic and imported auto parts covering all mechanical lines for vehicles, vans and trucks.

Isapa proudly offers the latest technology and all necessary certifications for the quality and safety for each of its products.

As Isapa began to grow its customer base, it wanted to ensure the company follows its internal security information policies. Additionally, Isapa wanted to provide secure access to all its employees, including those who work remote. With the help of their reseller, 5F Soluções em TI, Isapa chose WatchGuard to fulfill internal regulations, offer security and meet budget requirements. “We chose WatchGuard because it was practical, easy and secure,” notes Cecilia Barbosa Bengozi, security manager for information and communication technology at Isapa Importação e Comercio Ltda.


With internal regulations and secure employee company access in mind, Isapa worked with its reseller to deploy WatchGuard’s multi-factor authentication, AuthPoint. AuthPoint helps Isapa remain compliant with its internal security policies because it restricts the company’s network access only to authorized employees. For Isapa, protecting access to the network is critical, especially as they begin to expand their locations across Brazil. “WatchGuard’s AuthPoint has checked all the boxes we were looking for in a security solution to help us remain compliant. Plus, we have total control of it from the Cloud, so managing our employees’ access has never been easier,” explains Cecilia.


For Isapa, AuthPoint has allowed them to meet internal security policies by keeping the company’s network secure. When it comes to transacting with new customers as the company grows, protecting Isapa’s customers’ personal data is becoming more important than ever. Furthermore, Isapa feels confident that its AuthPoint solution can scale with them as they add more locations and employees. Cecilia concludes, “There have been zero complaints from our employees since we rolled out AuthPoint. Our reseller has both the knowledge and commitment with delivery that we trust them when we look to add more WatchGuard solutions in the future as our business grows.”
