B.A.G. Network used BMS and Tally ERP in their current setup for editing and publishing TV software, digital content, advertisements, etc., for different companies and news channels. They had extended the same setup to partner companies and provided services over the software. Secure connection from partner networks to B.A.G. datacenter was a challenge for B.A.G’s IT team.

Network’s IT team were looking out for an application delivery solution that will help them deliver the business applications to their users, spread across different branches and the partner companies through a single point of control. Since partners were not part of the private WAN network of B.A.G. Films, they were looking out for a solution that supported secure access over Internet.

The B.A.G. Network evaluated various solutions including market leader products. But no single vendor could provide the combination of application virtualization as well as a secure VPN solution. Mikroz InfoSecurity Pvt. Ltd., a Propalms authorised and certified gold partner demonstrated and helped B.A.G. select and successfully deploy Propalms’ TSE and OneGate which satisfied both application virtualization as well as seamless VPN connectivity. Propalms, with on-site coordination and assistance from their gold partner Mikroz InfoSecurity Pvt. Ltd., deployed OneGate for secure connectivity between end user machines and the datacenter. Propalms OneGate proved to be a zero management VPN solution. Propalms VPN ensured, only authorized users could login into the TSE servers to reach the application. Propalms TSE provided a virtual application instance to each user so that they can access the application anytime – anywhere and feed data to the application.
