Websense Keeps Nevada-Based Michael Hohl Automotive Group's Networks Clean of Malware and Spam, Secures Remote Locations Through Software-as-a-Service Solutions
For Michael Hohl Automotive Group, a Northern Nevada-Based automotive company with nine dealerships throughout the region, selling cars, trucks and RVs has been a way of life for more than 20 years. With a growing online sales and services business, the car dealer depends on their Internet and email systems to run smoothly. After Web-based security threats like spyware threatened their essential information and spam bogged down their email systems, the company turned to Websense for hosted email and Web security.
"Even though we had anti-virus installed on our computers and anti-spam on our email server, our employees were inadvertently introducing malware into the organization by visiting compromised Web sites and clicking on links in spam that led to infected Web sites," said Doug Hays, information technology manager, Michael Hohl Automotive Group. "Before Websense, the majority of our day was spent cleaning machines and worrying about losing confidential data. After deploying software-as-a-service Websense security solutions throughout our nine locations, our security issues have been eradicated."
"As a relatively small business, we needed Web and email security that was easy to install and use and most importantly we needed something effective," added Hays. "The hosted deployment option from Websense was perfect, and we saw the results immediately. In just a few short months of having the products up and running they have already paid for themselves in terms of the time saved cleaning machines. Websense also enables us to allow our employees to use the Internet safely and productively, while reducing our business risk."
Michael Hohl Automotive Group, a mainstay of Northern Nevada for more than 20 years, has more than 100 employees and nine dealerships selling brands including Buick, Cadillac, GMC, Honda, Chevrolet and Subaru. The company also has two RV dealerships. In addition to on-site car sales, Michael Hohl also specializes in parts sales and services and has a growing online presence that offers financing, inventory, parts ordering and appointment requests.
"For growing businesses like Michael Hohl Automotive Group, hosted security solutions are an effective option that delivers the maximum protection, without the need for hardware equipment costs and upkeep," said Leo Cole, vice president of marketing at Websense. "Websense Hosted Web Security and Websense Hosted Email Security solutions keep out threats, while protecting customers and their essential information, allowing organizations like Michael Hohl to concentrate on helping grow the business by not having to spend outlandish resources on security."
