Key pain points

For CyberCare, the security of customer data is non-negotiable. As a company that prides itself on providing superior customer support, it became evident that an enhanced security framework was imperative. 

The quest wasn't sparked by a singular incident but by a continuous commitment to uphold the highest standards of data security and privacy.

A simple and effective way to add another security layer

Main criteria choosing the solution

The pivot from previous VPN tools to NordLayer wasn't a leap in the dark but a calculated step toward fortified security. NordLayer, with its robust VPN services, offered the perfect armor to shield the valuable data entrusted by clients. 

“Before NordLayer, we had a short sprint with other VPN tools, which were more complicated. They were managed manually and it was difficult to onboard and offboard new CyberCare employees.”

Who? Dual synergy

CyberCare employs both internal policies and external tools to manage sensitive data. They emphasize selecting partners like Zendesk, known for its commitment to security and ensuring compliance with the latest standards.

Why? Strategic alignment

Zendesk was chosen for its status as a leading CRM platform, ease of use, and significant investment in security. This partnership was based on the need for a CRM that matched CyberCare's security requirements and business operations.

How? The process

CyberCare leverages NordLayer to ensure that the login process to Zendesk is encrypted and secure. With NordLayer, they assign fixed IPs, meaning Zendesk can be accessed securely via these IPs. This setup guarantees that both the traffic within Zendesk and the access to it are encrypted and safeguarded.

What? The usage

The integration is seamless for employees who log into Zendesk through NordLayer without navigating complex security measures. This not only simplifies the process but also enforces a high level of security by default.

The outcome

An intuitive tool you can forget about

The benefits of implementing NordLayer

The integration of NordLayer into CyberCare's operations marked a new dawn. With NordLayer's intuitive design and features like 2FA, SSO, and static IPs, CyberCare not only safeguarded its data but also streamlined access and management processes. 

“There are two things about using NordLayer in the team. First, it’s definitely easy, as the app always runs automatically in the background. Second, users must select the correct gateway to connect to Zendesk to do their work, so it’s intuitive by design.”
