Date : 8/1/2013
We found ourselves vulnerable. Our network was slow and employees were unable to work outside of the hospital securely.
Abdullah Y. Alfi, Director of Communication and Information Technology, King Fahd Armed Forces Hospital, Saudi Arabia
ChallengeThe hospital needed to support and protect two data centres and five city-wide satellite clinics that form part of a national network of healthcare facilities. In addition, KFAFH required a solution that enabled employees to be productive from virtually anywhere.
SolutionAfter upgrading its infrastructure to 10Gbps, KFAFH deployed the SuperMassive Series to provide multiple layers of security to protect its data centres. To support employees on the move, the hospital complemented its deployment with a Dell™ SonicWALL™ E-Class Secure Remote Access (SRA) solution.
