Untangle for State & Local Government

Compliance made simple.

The adoption of mobile technology has rapidly increased following the Executive Order mandating government agencies streamline the delivery of services to lower costs, decrease delivery times, and improve the customer experience. To meet this directive, government agencies are moving to an IT infrastructure where data is accessible to users on any device of their choice. This requires network administrators to make the shift from securing devices to securing the data itself. This is paramount as not doing so puts identifiable information such as name, address, birth date and Social Security Number at risk.

With Untangle, government agencies can cost-effectively protect data and limit access to only authorized users. Network administrators can build a safe and secure environment with granular visibility and control over their network.

NG Firewall Case Study

Virgin Isles Water & Power Authority (WAPA)

The Network Specialist at WAPA, Julius Aubain, had several issues to contend with when deciding to upgrade his web filter appliance: recessionary budget pressures, requiring him to look for savings across his IT budget; escalating subscription costs from his incumbent vendor; and some employees that had found ways to get around the existing web filter using proxies to bypass it. He needed to look for a replacement—one that would be more cost-effective and more robust.

The fact that I can install the software on servers of my choosing, rather than being tied to a dedicated hardware appliance, gives me much more flexibility and control.

Pickaway County Sheriff’s Office has embraced new technology to keep up-to-date. Its staff are protected from online threats both in the office and out on the road. Mobile police units are connected to the headquarters through virtual private networks (VPNs) and their Internet traffic is scanned and filtered just as it is at their desks. Untangle provides the VPN connectivity and web filtering all in one box.

Untangle has integrated best-of-class web filtering and combined it with rich reporting, anti-spyware and a host of other services; it’s a complete offering, and really sets the mark in the industry.
