Krueger Wholesale Florist, a Wisconsin-based distributor of fresh cut flowers, green plants and supplies to customers across a nine states, has deployed an EdgeWave iPrism Web Security solution to four separate locations with hundreds of employees. One of the key reasons for EdgeWave's win was ThreatSTOP, whose botnet blocklist is integrated into the iPrism. This is often the case with EdgeWave, Simwood and other partners, where ThreatSTOP provides a key differentiator and value unavailable anywhere else.
John Troemel, IT Manager at Krueger Wholesale, was intrigued by ThreatSTOP technology. Given the noticeable rise of criminal malware and challenges associated with a dynamically changing threat landscape, Troemel was intent on implementing a solution that would deliver proactive defense against these exploits. By simply checking the botnet category in the iPrism URL database, Troemel was immediately alerted to potential security risks he didn't know existed. "Enabling the botnet defense showed me that there were some desktops trying to connect with Skype that should not be," said Troemel. "This could have resulted in a potential security issue, but because of iPrism, I was able to fix that problem. I keep a really clean network, and iPrism really helps things stay even more secure."
