Axminster Carpets has rolled out a network security management system to help protect its operations.
Axminster has chosen the DynaComm i:scan endpoint security solution from FutureSoft to monitor and regulate its IT network.The system enables group-based control of PC end-points, minimal administrator overheads and real-time protection.
"We were becoming more and more concerned about spyware possibly infecting our network," said Axminster network administrator Garry Larcombe. "We also needed to prevent users from installing applications, such as instant messaging, that could present a security risk."
The company has implemented a series of network policies based on types of user and their needs. Management staff are allowed more flexibility to install applications, while PCs involved in manufacturing are completely locked down.
Larcombe and his team also have access to daily threat reports created through the system.
