Yarra Ranges Council is located on metropolitan Melbourne's eastern fringe, with parts just 45 minutes from the CBD. Having multiple applications not only requires management and maintenance of the infrastructure for the devices and software, it also increases the overhead associated with managing them. Network security requires a specialist and the people do not have the budget or resources for that. The Tesserent managed security service ticked all the Council's boxes. Tesserent managed security service has been a huge win, Internet service that will be delivered via a clean pipe solution and managed security services was basically cost neutral with the savings from replacing the previous solutions.
