Clavister Secures Private Cloud for German Church Administration


More than 100 firewalls distributed across parish network in Southern

Clavister (NASDAQ: CLAV), a leader in high-performance network security,
has announced a large-scale deployment of its Eagle series compact
next-generation firewalls (NGFW) with a church administration in
southern Germany.

The administration has been using the Eagle appliances since the start
of the year to secure its IT infrastructure. The solution was
implemented by Freiburg-based Clavister partner IT-Systemhaus Jerg and
covers critical functions such as antivirus and web content filtering.
More than 100 Eagle firewalls will be deployed across the churches over
the next two and a half years.

The administration manages all the pastoral, educational and other
ecumenical departments of the churches. With the various parishes being
separated by long distances, the specially built private cloud digitises
and centralises the different applications of individual departments.
Staff can access Office applications and the terminal server as well as
file sharing, which is particularly important to the internal workflow.

Jürgen Selz, Managing Director of IT-Systemhaus Jerg, commented: “The
solution is perfect for this environment as the large number of
firewalls can be easily and comfortably administered and monitored
through the centralised InControl system.”

The Clavister Eagle series appliances are ideal for securing remote or
branch offices, delivering firewall performance of up to 4GB at a highly
competitive price with the E80. They offer full NGFW features such as
application control, user identity awareness, IPSec and SSL VPN, and
content security services including IPS, IDS, web content filtering and

The Eagle appliances are centrally managed using Clavister InControl,
making it easy to maintain a unified security model across the
organisation. Together with user identity awareness, this gives
powerful, granular visibility and control over users’ access to
applications across networks, enabling busi­ness-critical application
usage to be prioritised and increasing overall business productivity.
