PrefixNE in action in the automotive sector

Working with companies in the automotive sector has helped Prefix IT understand that such businesses typically face multiple challenges:

Managing PC networks across diverse locations
Staff using peer-to-peer applications for social interaction
Software deployment to remote sites
Data security in an environment where many or even most staff have access to devices such as PDAs, MP3 players and memory sticks
A substantial West Midlands car dealership facing challenges like these chose PrefixNE, primarily for its ability to give the IT Manager quick and easy control over the use of unauthorised applications, such as MSN Messenger and Skype.

Using PrefixNE, the dealership can now control, and where appropriate, prohibit the use of such applications. They can also undertake comprehensive real time software and hardware asset management across all branches, from the IT Manager's central PrefixNE console.

"PrefixNE has dramatically improved our network security," said the dealership's IT Manager. "Messenger and Skype were open doors to all sorts of intruders – it was only a matter of time before we had a serious incident. I'm delighted to say that door is now firmly closed."

PrefixNE gives the IT professional full control over unauthorised activity, improving productivity, reducing the malware threat, freeing up bandwidth and boosting return on investment in the network infrastructure.

In just a few clicks from a central console, and in real time, PrefixNE identifies which applications are being used and by whom. The suite also makes enforcing network usage policies straightforward: use of individual applications can be prohibited entirely, allowed only by specific users or groups, or allowed only during specific times of day.

PrefixNE gives the IT professional the necessary tools to achieve a fine degree of control over the ways in which the network is used, protecting against data theft, ingress of malicious code, and unnecessary drains on bandwidth and other resources. PrefixNE protects the network, enhances productivity and can save IT support teams hundreds of man-hours every month.

PrefixNE. Power and control over your network assets.
