Evolve Secure Solutions, a specialist provider of storage, security and infrastructure has announced the successful completion of a “Cost Neutral” Barracuda Spam & Virus Firewall solution for Wellington College. The licensing cost savings made from the replacement of the College’s legacy Websense SurfControl platform has entirely paid for the implementation of the Barracuda platform which also has better performance and full failover capability.
“Our SurfControl Platform ran across three separate servers including an SQL database and was struggling especially during large mail shots,” explains Tony Whelton, Director of IT development and services, “It also had poor resilience and required more maintenance and support.”
Whelton who had looked at Barracuda previously while working as an IT Director within the commercial sector did an extensive cost and performance analysis. “For what we were paying in licensing costs for SurfControl, we could run a superior Barracuda solution and have enough money left over to deploy a Palo Alto application firewall. It was a very simple decision to make.”
