“With Guardian Digital and EnGarde I’m able to sleep better at night and focus my resources on managing the business and travel needs of Sony’s corporate travelers,” said Karen Savitch, manager with Sony Electronics Group Travel Business. “Upgrading and protecting the corporate Web site and business sensitive database of our corporate travelers was a major strategic initiative for us. Guardian Digital’s Linux security solution EnGarde proactively monitors and updates our Internet security systems, protecting us from hackers and denial of service attacks. Their professional services team is by far one of the most responsive, knowledgeable and accountable team of IT professionals we’ve ever worked with.”
