Tired of Relying on Out-Dated, Traditional Security Software and Costly Remediation Techniques, the Industrial Automation Leader Turns to Websense for Web Security Protection
AutomationDirect, a well-recognized name in the industrial automation market, has deployed Websense Web Security Suite software to protect the organization from business-crippling spyware that was causing the company to lose more than 20 employee hours per week to computer clean up efforts.
AutomationDirect relies heavily on maintaining efficiency in their organization to drive business. In 2004 spyware became a major threat to their daily business operations. Before Websense, the 10-person IT team was cleaning about two to three machines on a daily basis averaging at least 4 hours per day. Rather than waiting on traditional security vendors to distribute signatures and to avoid having to spend countless hours on remediation, the company selected Websense software to block the spyware from ever entering the network.
"Because all 160 employees in our organization play a critical role in the overall success of the company, when even one machine goes down it affects our fast-paced environment," said Tim Lawrence, IT Security Analyst at AutomationDirect. "With Websense Web Security Suite we do not have to clean spyware off machines anymore -- it never gets there in the first place. The cost savings for us is priceless."
"Even though we're a smaller organization, Websense technical and sales support continues to be incredibly personal, with timely responses. We know we are an important and valued Websense customer," added AutomationDirect's Lawrence.
AutomationDirect is a direct seller of automation and industrial control products such as PLCs, sensors, pushbuttons, AC drives/motors, enclosures, operator interfaces, and much more. Through their free 1,900+ page catalog and their full-featured Web site, they are able to offer the most practical industrial automation products at the industry's lowest prices.
"Many of our clients are embracing the value that Websense ThreatSeeker technology brings to their organizations' security protection," said Mike Miller of Dallas-based ANI Direct, a Websense channel partner. "With Real-Time Security Updates™, our clients like AutomationDirect know that malicious code and spyware is blocked even before it hits the network. Our clients trust and rely on Websense software everyday to protect the integrity of their network and business."
