Solusi Manajemen Akses Internet dengan SANGFOR

Networks are playing increasingly crucial roles in the internal and external communications of academic institutions, especially in the higher education of colleges and universities. However, there are potential risks associated with the development of this important infrastructure; risks that are the concern of IT managers across academia.

Today’s educators and students often have access to comprehensive network resources. Yet the network can also be a source of malware and disruptive content. Open discussion groups and unmonitored postings can create legal or religious problems for colleges and universities. How can a healthy campus network be built? There are enormous numbers of educators and students on campus, and most institutions have multiple external Internet connections. Bandwidth can exceed hundreds of megabits (or even gigabits) per second to meet user demand. Meanwhile, peer-to-peer (P2P) applications can significantly consume and degrade this bandwidth. How can an efficient campus network be built? Complex network applications and a large intranet user base can also become points of vulnerability. How can a secure campus network be built?

Our Solutions:
  Guarantees network integrity: SANGFOR IAM can conduct full audits on Web pages, email and Instant Messaging to thwart the dissemination of disruptive information;
  Guarantees network efficiency: By virtue of intelligent P2P recognition technology, SANGFOR IAM can precisely recognize and control P2P-type applications that consume inordinate levels of bandwidth;
  Guarantees network security: To secure the intranet, SANGFOR IAM has a built-in firewall and can integrate with gateway antivirus;

    Internet is one of the most cost effective and flexible communication media. However, with the convenience Internet brings to business, it also poses various threads at the same time. Applications such as P2P downloading, online video cause slow access to critical business resource. Social networking also causes involuntarily disclosure of critical business information. These inappropriate activities can lead to the drop of work efficiency and decrease of turnovers while increase the IT operation costs.

    Been designed to create value to organization via Internet Access Management, SANGFOR IAM achieves such result through Internet access visibility, control and optimization.

    Visibility assists organization to identify Internet access risks such as bandwidth abuse, recreational activity and so on.
    Control of applications and users access will be deployed to minimize risks through Internet correspondingly.
    Optimization allows organization to manage and optimize Internet access speed for applications.

    By deploy IAM, business enjoys a manageable, swift and a simple network infrastructure.  IAM boosts business productivity by offering faster access to business resource and regulate employees’ recreational activities. Furthermore, with efficient bandwidth usage and caching technology, IAM minimizes the Internet bandwidth investment effectively by delaying or avoid frequent bandwidth upgrade.

    Monitoring the Internet Access Traffic
    SANGFOR IAM identifies, categorizes and logs the internal users' access activities, bandwidth consumption and related content also to enable full traffic visibility. With its unparalleled reporting capabilities, the IAM manages to show an accurate map of network traffic, assist organizations to analyze Internet access risks.

    Controlling the Internet Access Activities
    The IAM provides comprehensive controls over applications such as social website, forums, IM, Email, online video, P2P, file transferring, etc. The flexible controls allow you to manage the Internet access the way you want, thus, free you from the challenges of low work efficiency, data loss, copy right, and other risks that caused by improper Internet access.

    Optimizing the Internet Access Speed
    IAM’s well-reputed bandwidth management solution is designed to assist organizations to maximize the bandwidth usage, the result of which is more bandwidth for critical business applications/users/user groups while less bandwidth for inappropriate activities. Furthermore, IAM combines its caching feature to reduce up to 30%-50% of the Internet traffic, significantly enhancing the access speed while reducing the bandwidth cost.
