Korado Deploys Manufacturing Network with Enterasys
Andover, MA, Apr 20, 2009
Leading European Manufacturer Enhances Management Visibility with Role-based Access Controls for New Production Facility Network
Enterasys Networks Inc., the Secure Networks Company™ today announced that Korado, a leading manufacturer of radiators for central heating, has deployed an Enterasys network infrastructure for its new production facility in the Czech Republic. The redesigned production system, critical to supporting the company’s continued growth in the heating market, communicates over the Enterasys network which prioritizes and protects users and industrial automation process control applications.
The new communications infrastructure provides Korado’s IT staff of two people the highest levels of network visibility to proactively manage a wide range of Enterasys and third party firewalls, VPN concentrators and anti-virus technology, allowing them to optimize network performance and respond rapidly to security threats.
“We selected Enterasys based on a long history of positive experiences with their service, and the strong performance and reliability of their products,” said Marek Musil, IT Director at Korado. “The holistic nature of Enterasys Secure Networks gives us comprehensive protection at the network entrance – this is particularly important for us.”
Enterasys Network Access Control (NAC) provides Korado dynamic control of users and devices, granting access to appropriate networked resources only after identity-based authentication. Priority and security policies are easily created and deployed in a single click with Enterasys NMS Policy Manager. Role-based access controls dynamically move with the user or device and automatically adjust to changes in the network infrastructure.
“Network security was our main criteria, especially protecting the LAN from internal threats and accidental configuration errors,” said Jan Vinkler, Korado Senior IT Engineer. “Enterasys ‘smart ports’ allow us to centrally define role-based access controls for users and devices without involving IT for every move/add/change. In case of a policy violation, we quarantine them and automate repair.”
Enterasys N-Series, G-Series and C-Series switches deliver 10-Gigabit Ethernet capacity with extensive application bandwidth management and enforcement of policies down to the port level, leveraging multi-user authentication and enforcement.
Rather than restricting intrusion prevention visibility and control to a subset of network connections, Enterasys Distributed Intrusion Prevention extends protection to every network link to detect threats, stop attacks and, most importantly, automatically remove the source of the threat from the network. Enterasys SIEM correlates and prioritizes all relevant security information into a single display, providing actionable information to enable rapid response.
“With Enterasys we can effectively monitor and protect the entire network in a centralized manner – with only two employees,” continued Musil. “The extensive reporting capabilities also allow us to control costs because the immediate access to information reduces our need for external support.”
“Enterasys is pleased to be the network provider for a leading manufacturer such as Korado,” said Chris Crowell, EVP and General Manager at Enterasys. “Their new network is a prime example of how Enterasys supports business operations through advanced QoS and embedded security that provides deterministic control of the proprietary applications found in manufacturing environments.”
Founded in 1990, Korado has grown to become one of the largest radiator manufacturers in Europe. The company employs 850 people at its headquarters in the Czech Republic and produces more than two million disk radiators every year. The Korado product portfolio, which has over 10,000 separate items, includes RADIK flat radiators, KORALUX bath and design radiators and KORATHERM comfort radiators.
