Retailer Protects Bottom Line With VPN
Source: WatchGuard Technologies
As a not-for-profit retailer, Goodwill Industries of Northeast Indiana, Inc. needs to wring high efficiency from a tight IT budget. "They needed to communicate better. Initially, the stores didn't even have PCs. It was fax machines and phone calls. They needed to get to data feeds, online forms and emails. So one of the first things they did was to get together with Intrasect on a plan to get their locations connected." Intrasect helped Goodwill roll out a back-office VPN built around a WatchGuard Firebox Core X750e appliance at the corporate data center. Solving the connectivity problem was job number one, but Goodwill and Intrasect identified several other advantages from the WatchGuard solution.
