Tullow Oil is an independent oil and gas exploration and production company. Established in 1985, the organisation began near Dublin in Tullow, Ireland, and was initially set up to develop small or old oil and gas fields. In 2006, it exceeded the $1 billion revenue threshold. It now has operations in 24 countries across the globe with a focus on African oil interests. In 2011, the company produced 78,200 barrels of oil equivalent per day and it currently employs over 1,500 people.
Tullow Oil employees operate in many diverse, difficult, and frequently remote locations—for example, oil rigs at sea—from which they need constant, reliable access to essential services. The company also needs security that can guarantee data and communications integrity, as employees often communicate about extremely sensitive issues. Although they’re working from disparate locations, employees must be able to access their corporate email to ensure business continuity. Tullow Oil needed a solution that would enable it to keep communications secure from any location, and that could ensure that only verified Tullow Oil employees could access these communications.
