When Biffa Waste Services needed to replace its ageing dial-up system, the company required that two key objectives be met. Firstly that a new IT system should improve the effectiveness with which its employees gain remote access to applications and files and secondly that the system, which is audited by Biffa’s parent company, Severn Trent Plc., complied with stringent security policies. All this had to be achieved at a reasonable cost.
Responding to the challenge, engineers at security and technology consultants Eurodata Systems implemented a costeffective, secure remote access solution, based on Whale’s (Microsoft) Intelligent Application Gateway and Swivel’s tokenless, two-factor authentication platform. As a result, Biffa could give users fast broadband access to vital applications and resources – including an accounting application, Citrix MetaFrame and Microsoft Outlook – and meet their security targets, all for a reasonable price.
