Secure Internet check-in for Flughafen München GmbH

The “Franz Josef Strauß” Munich Airport is currently the second largest air transport hub in Germany
and processes around 39 million passengers a year. With around 30,000 employees, Munich Airport is
one of the largest employers in the region and, in addition to organizing and processing passenger and
freight transport in cooperation with external service providers, has numerous tasks which require IT
resources and the Internet. It goes without saying that operations at an airport carry particular security
demands as well as availability requirements. This especially includes use of the Internet. An increasing
number of employees require access not only to internal IT systems, but also secure, highly available and
performant access to the Internet. The threat of Trojans, viruses or malware and the associated risk of
targeted cyber attacks and data corruption is considerable. The solution for this security challenge was
initiated at the start of 2012 and implemented with the security expert McAfee.
