ETC Group

Geography

N America

Product Used

VNS3

Problem
ETC Group provides energy efficiency analytics tied to building system data. Rather than have their customers open up firewall rules to the public internet, the company sought out IPsec VPN solutions.
Solution
For customers who do not deploy the ETC Group server within their network, VNS3 gives more options for secure connectivity to cloud-based servers, external servers, and even future IoT devices outside the network.
Outcome
“The great thing about VNS3 is that we can learn the platform and the setup and replicate it to those different firewalls rather than customizing it each time,” said Jake MacArthur, Monitoring and Analytics Product Director at ETC Group. ETC Group can then speed up time to connect to customers and reduce operational complexity.
