Established in 1928, North Cork Creameries is farmer-owned co-operative processing over 360 million equivalent whole milk litres a year into a range of value-added food ingredients and delicious dairy products.
FutureRange has worked with North Cork Creameries for the past 20 years on several different projects.
With hacking and cybercrime on the rise, securing your organization’s data through proportionate security systems is more important than ever.
The IT team works hard to ensure their IT Infrastructure operates to the highest security levels by getting the most out of their investment in technology and the tools at their disposal.
Keeping a level of security and compliance can be difficult and often requires much larger teams to support the standards that have been set by the NCC, they have done this by implementing best-of-breed, proven technology from vendors like SonicWall, Microsoft, and HPE.
FutureRange evaluated all security technologies to ensure that NCC was equipped with the strongest solutions to deliver the highest level of information security. North Cork Creameries recently upgraded all their firewalls to high-end SonicWalls, to provide best-in-class security while also future-proofing NCC for future expansion. As Ransomware becomes more prevalent across industries and the economic impact that this has on organizations like NCC, Futurerange provided a whitelisting application solution known as Threatlocker, that implements a zero-trust network by applying an implicit deny rule across endpoints. This means that only pre-approved applications are allowed to run on the NCC network.
The threat landscape had been sufficiently reduced for North Cork Creameries by implementing the above technology.NCC is very well managed and responsive to external threats while maintaining access to business systems for those working in their offices and remotely. The planning of their infrastructure and choice of technology allows them, to be very reactive to change while maintaining responsiveness and security.
FutureRange was the best choice for Zenith Technologies; they stayed with us throughout the entire process of the Citrix project to provide global secure web-based access to our proprietary applications and provided immensely beneficial knowledge transfer to our IT professionals and staff. We feel a very high level of trust and confidence working with FutureRange now and into the future.
John Guerin, Head of IT | ZENITH TECHNOLIGIES
FutureRange stand out in particular because of the support they have given to our firm in scaling up for the challenge of moving all of our staff to remote working during this Covid19 pandemic. In all of our dealings with FutureRange, and particularly during this most challenging time we have always felt like they had our back completely and they have always ramped up their efforts without ramping up costs accordingly.
Leading Irish Law firm
Back in 1997 we required access to HQ applications from our Dublin Office and FutureRange were engaged to implement a Citrix based solution. The project was a success and we have continued to work with Citrix and FutureRange to date, expanding the use of the technology. FutureRange has provided competitive pricing, expert knowledge and on-going support. I would have no hesitation in recommending them as Citrix experts.

For the past number of years FutureRange has helped support Bord Na Mona to realise significant performance increases across WAN connections for key business systems and helped decease our annual IT support costs to remote staff. This is a direct result of our ongoing successful Citrix deployment also enabling secure access to disconnected staff across the WEB by way of Citrix NetScaler and two-factor authentication.
Paul Boland, Technology & Solutions Manager | BORD NA MONA
FutureRange planned and executed our move to Office365 meticulously. Since our initial engagement, I have moved my IT support to FutureRange and have found them equally as impressive and very knowledgeable on all aspects of IT.
