OSRAM is arguably the top light manufacturer in the world and has a corporate history stretching back more than 100 years. Over that time, the company has grown to 20,000 users spread across the globe, and with that kind of growth comes some IT challenges. Specifically, OSRAM was finding that its network was becoming too decentralized, which led to operational inefficiencies and concerns about properly securing the network.
Enter the Palo Alto Networks PA-2050 Next-Generation Firewall. After installation, the OSRAM IT team was amazed by the amount of information it provided on the users, applications and data operating on the network. With this information, OSRAM was able to operate its network more efficiently, yield lower IT management costs, increase security, and satisfy user requests much faster. Inspired by the results obtained after implementing the PA-2050, OSRAM incorporated more Palo Alto Network enterprise security technology into its network. To learn more about how OSRAM is using the Palo Alto Networks Enterprise Security Platform to achieve its business goals, take a look at this case study available in English or German.
