Super Kiosko S.A. de C.V.is a convenience stores chain offering high-quality mass consumption goods and well-known brands in more than 200 stores located in four Pacific states of the Mexican Republic.
Super Kiosko's goal was to ensure the reliability and integrity of transactions and operations in their 200 convenience stores. Their legacy system and network devices were becoming obsolete, and were unable to reliably supply the communications they needed in order to make critical information available for effective decision-making.
After evaluating other solutions, Super Kiosko chose WatchGuard's XTM devices "because they offer the best services and technology support to protect our transactions' integrity," said Cuauhtémoc Márquez Cervantes, Super Kiosko. "WatchGuard's security solutions allow us to quickly and easily create secure VPN tunnels combining networks and environments in the cloud, using a straight-forward central console."
Super Kiosko deployed WatchGuard's XTM 800 Series Unified Thread Management devices at multiple sites. The platform ensures compliance with the organization's security policies and allows the easy management of secure data transferred between teams.
WatchGuard's XTM family of devices provide advanced network solutions for securely managing Super Kiosko's high-volume traffic with a set of flexible management tools, which allow IT administrators to manage security through an intuitive central console, a command line interface, and a web-based interface.
The implementation of WatchGuard's Unified Threat Management solutions allowed Super Kiosko to perform real-time transactional monitoring via content inspection technologies which recognize and block threats, along with several VPN options that offer higher flexibility for remote access.
"The ease of configuration when implementing policies, creating VPNs and delegating roles through WatchGuard System Manager (WSM) has been really helpful, and has contributed to improving the workload distribution among engineers and a better response time," continued Cuauhtémoc Márquez.
WSM is an administrative environment with powerful tools to manage a network's devices from a single console. It supports the easy configuration and modification of licenses, URL filtering, anti-virus and anti-spam services, the creation of VPN tunnels through a drag-and drop interface, and the generation of comprehensive reports in order to minimize network security risks and maintain exceptional service levels in critical situations.
WatchGuard gives Super Kiosko full control of their network's incoming and outgoing traffic with a high-availability, disruption-free solution, where security incidents can be identified and handled immediately with the kind of real-time data traffic monitoring that enables proactive management.
As well as Application Control, WatchGuard's technology provides improved bandwidth use, which ensures wireless connectivity and allows guest users controlled Internet access without compromising Super Kiosko's security.
"When looking for a solution meeting all of our network's needs, WatchGuard highlighted three important factors: competitive price, excellent customer service, and devices that are extremely easy to configure," stated Cuauhtémoc Márquez.
