Security Case Study: The Arc of Three Rivers

Boosting network security and visibility

Company: The Arc of the Three Rivers
Industry: Nonprofit
Location: Charleston, West Virginia
Company Size: 200 employees


A classic IT lone ranger, Tom Mullins faces formidable budget restrictions working for a nonprofit organization serving those with intellectual and developmental disabilities. Mullins has to evaluate every product decision for feature set, cost efficiency, ease of use, and time to value.


With the Cisco ASA 5508-X with FirePOWER Services, Mullins can meet all his objectives. The ASA 5508-X combines multiple functions in one solution, including Cisco Advanced Malware Protection (AMP), the Cisco Next-Generation Intrusion Prevention System (NGIPS), Cisco Application Visibility and Control (AVC), and URL filtering.


Mullins can now provide the Arc and its clients with better security. The nonprofit has gained advanced threat protection, industry-leading breach detection, and improved VPN access. Mullins can quickly detect and remediate more threats with better network visibility while saving the organization time and money.

The Cisco next-generation firewall has given us a solution that works really well with our infrastructure and that gives us the visibility we need within our network.

Tom Mullins, Network/Systems Administrator, The Arc of the Three Rivers
