Securing remote access for oil and gas exploration firm

30 January 2014

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.
