LAG Trailers invests in safe networking environment
Additional online safety is an important pillar of LAG's IT department. Recently the company invested in an improved internal network and now the company focused on a safer working environment.
LAG Trailers worked closely with Belgian IT-partner EuroSys on an extra security layer with multi-factor authentication. This authentication method ensures that in addition to a password you have to take a second step to gain access to your data.
"Thanks to AuthPoint from WatchGuard we now work much more securely and it is also user-friendly", as stated by Ronny Kelchtermans, system administrator at LAG.
LAG already had a multi-factor authentication solution, but this software was in need of a renewal. For the update LAG called in the help of EuroSys. "A few years ago EuroSys renewed our entire IT infrastructure and helped setting up the current firewalls," says Ronny Kelchtermans.
Ronny Kelchtermans was immediately convinced to install the multi-factor authentication solution Authpoint from WatchGuard. "It's a cloud solution, so we don't have to worry about updates anymore. The program also has an app for the smartphone that updates itself. This method is much safer than the old one", according to the system administrator.
"Another big advantage of Authpoint is the help to meet the GDPR-requirements. The extra security layer is an important prerequisite to secure our data ". as mentioned by Ronny Kelchtermans. Authpoint also secures other applications in the cloud (Office 365, Teamleader, ...) as well as on LAG’s own server environment.
At LAG, they are also very satisfied with how the software works when it comes to managing Authpoint. "We can log in and make changes wherever we are," mentions Kelchtermans.
