Headquartered in Westlake, Ohio, Nordson Corporation is the world’s leading
manufacturer of systems that apply adhesives, sealants and coatings during manufacturing operations. With more than 3,800 employees in 30 countries and working relationships with more than 165 distributor organizations, Nordson’s worldwide presence covers 57 countries. Like many corporations with a global presence, Nordson must remain ever vigilant in their efforts to protect the network while maintaining appropriate cost controls.

When it comes to network security, the best approach is a layered defense that applies different technologies to network traffic with the goal of stopping all manner of attacks. That is the theory anyways. Too often a layered security solution means multiple security devices from different vendors, each with their own management interfaces and related oddities, a fact that Tim Harr, Manager, Corporate Information Technologies, Nordson Corporation recently experienced firsthand.
