Vodafone helps improve an Italian holiday resort’s cybersecurity defences
Aug 8, 2023
In northern Italy sits pretty seaside town Bibione. An hour’s drive from Venice, it is a popular holiday destination with Europeans, seeing around 6 million visitors a year.
Amongst the many resorts located along this golden coastline is Villaggio Turistico Internazionale, a five-star open-air resort surrounded by pine forests. Welcoming up to 3,500 people each day, it operates a complex infrastructure while also handling personal data, so its security needs to be resilient.
As today’s threat landscape continues to evolve, businesses everywhere need to work harder to maintain their cybersecurity defences, protecting sensitive data and securing their assets, premises and communications.
Hackers don’t take holidays
To protect its devices, cloud apps and emails from phishing emails, spam and data leakage, Villaggio Turistico Internazionale wanted a unified solution.
Using Vodafone Endpoint Guardian Advanced, combined with mobile device management services, we have been able to improve the business’ cybersecurity processes and make it a tough target for hackers.
Improving the resort’s overall security structure, we’re not only helping it respond to cyberattacks, but we’re pre-empting them by monitoring unusual activities in real-time.
The solution uses an advanced sensor technology to record system and user behaviours to detect viruses, spyware, spam and web threats. Running comprehensive analysis based on these detailed insights, we can help the business immediately respond to suspicious behaviour and identify any vulnerabilities to prevent similar attacks in the future.
The service also includes URL filtering that blocks access to risky websites.
Defending small businesses
As a small business, Villaggio Turistico Internazionale didn’t have the resource for an in-house cyber team. Instead, it now benefits from our managed services and relies on support from our team of experts who protect the business and support the internal IT team by ensuring continuous monitoring to detect, investigate, classify and manage security instances.
In case of very high-risk threats, our experts reach out to Villaggio’s IT team immediately, responding to the incident in less than 30 minutes. This means Villaggio Turistico Internazionale can focus on what really matters – giving its guests the experience of a lifetime.
