Greater control of patches, software updates and malware management

Myers Group looked for an automated all-in-one solution – and found it in WithSecure™ Elements Endpoint Protection

Case study: Myers Group

The need to manage all endpoints centrally

As a group of companies employing hundreds of people across multiple locations and with limited IT resources, Myers needed a solution to enable them to centrally manage all their endpoint security solutions from the one place. The price of other well-known cloud-based endpoint protection solutions including the previous solution kept rising. This, combined with the time it was taking to manually push out security patches across all devices was becoming unmanageable.

“The main driver for us was that we needed an all-in-one solution that provided both patch management and security. We needed something all-inclusive and easy to deploy. We needed a package for ongoing patch management and software updates as well as malware. Other well-known solutions did not include an automated ‘patch management’ option that we needed.”

“After listening to WithSecure on a podcast and also seeing Mikko Hypponen on a TedTalk, WithSecure was shortlisted alongside Kaspersky and Sophos. Having considered all three, we felt that WithSecure matched our needs best and we purchased through Probrand, whom we know and have used for other services in the past.”

Security and automated updates in a single solution

WithSecure Elements Endpoint Protection answered all of Myers Groups’ needs in one really smart package. Previously Myers Group had to continually make update patches manually across the entire business. WithSecure provided a complete solution that updated automatically and for less financial investment than before.

“We chose WithSecure because they provided us with a complete solution for all our needs, which was also completely cloud based, making installation and setup very simple. We now have greater control of patches, software updates and malware management which are all done automatically.”

The solution was downloaded directly from the cloud, with a simple step-by-step online process for deployment. Just a few clicks and they were set up. As a result, Myers was able to roll out the software to over 160 machines, across 14 sites nationally.

“With WithSecure, we get more services included for the price we pay now, compared to our previous supplier and can deploy patches at the touch of a button, which saves us a lot of time and effort.”

“The service and support was great from the outset. Any time we need support we are always able to get hold of someone at the end of the phone very quickly. A very responsive and helpful team.”

“From start to finish the experience was excellent and what I had hoped for. Simple, easy to manage, and ticked all the boxes.”
