Who is E-Mind s.r.l.
The company E-Mind S.r.l. was born back in 1997 as an Internet Service Provider, today we are an Internet Solutions Provider, and we strive to offer answers to the Internet needs of our customers.
The topics we can touch range from connectivity to the development of web based application solutions, passing through virtual servers, networking, security, firewalls, sd wan , on prem infrastructure and in public or hybrid cloud.
We like to think of ourselves as a competent technical partner, focused on customer needs and not tied to brands or craving for business. Our mission is to find the most suitable solution according to the customer’s need.
Why you chose FlashStart
Because we have seen them born, grow, they are an Italian reality that convinces abroad, because they are competent, because of the Maniacal care (the capital M is intentional) of the performance aspects of the dns infrastructure, because the support exists and is “arrivable” in human times and ways … if I have to add more I can go on.
Problem solved thanks to FlashStart
FlashStart’s dns filter system is an excellent answer in terms of basic security for our consumer and small business users, plus it provides important time savings in managing a critical and vital service such as the dns resolver.
Brief technical description of the implementation
We have varied the configuration of our local caches, which are set up via radius on customer routers, to forward all dns resolutions to FlashStart on a “basic” profile.
Other caches have also been set up that, in the same mode, will undergo filtering by FlashStart contemplating blocking categories for protection of minors and will be configured via radius as an alternative to the previous ones, should the customer request or select it in his private area.
Brief commentary on the experience
The effectiveness of the service, which is easy to implement, is “immediately appreciable” despite the fact that our systems were already ready and optimized. The filtering service contemplates the blocking lists prepared by agcom, one less problem to deal with. The pliability of implementation allows us to be ready the moment the regulator establishes the technical modalities and obligation of activating minor filter or other.
Objectives of the synergy between FlashStart and E-Mind
My mantra as a technician is to get things done with the tool that is best performing, reliable, and simple for my or the client’s need. There is no right solution for everything or everyone, but for my need for massive, minimally invasive and manageable protection over a large user base, this to me is THE solution.
