Business Requirement

HSMC was using a Microsoft forefront HA cluster was an outdated solution and even Microsoft had stopped the future release of the product and it needs to be replaced with a Robust and current generation solution with ease of management and not too costly.

Our Solution

We suggested HSMC to use their existing SonicWALL (Firewall) devices to do content filtering for them as well. Sonicwall was integrated into On-prem Active directory and we configured various Content Policies based on business needs for various employees.
