Comcast Business Offers Security Solutions for AFR Furniture Rental

Comcast Business announced it is providing premier furniture rental company AFR Furniture Rental with Comcast Business Ethernet Dedicated Internet, along with security solutions to support the company’s growing operations, providing a reliable and positive experience for AFR Furniture Rental customers and staff.

AFR Furniture Rental was founded in 1975 as a local Philadelphia residential furniture company. It has since grown into one of the country’s largest suppliers of rental furniture for residential, commercial, special events, trade shows, and clearance centers with 28 distribution centers across the United States. As the company has expanded into new markets and grown with strategic acquisitions, its technological requirements have continued to evolve, leading the company to need a more sophisticated infrastructure.

“Reliable connectivity and security are critical to the operational success of AFR Furniture Rental. This success wouldn’t be possible without the technology foundation provided by Comcast Business,” said Steven Singer, Chief Information Officer, AFR Furniture Rental. “The company’s ongoing support is evidence of how Comcast Business views our relationship – a true partnership. Comcast Business is right there alongside us ready to support our needs.”

With dozens of locations and a large remote workforce, it was important for AFR Furniture Rental to add Ethernet Dedicated Internet to support bandwidth-intensive applications with a robust connection. The need for distributed-denial-of-service (DDoS) mitigation was also prompted by the company’s desire to help protect against security events. This capability was one of the key reasons AFR Furniture Rental chose to partner with Comcast Business for expanded support, providing company leadership with added peace of mind. Enhanced network management provided by Comcast Business’ SD-WAN Solutions has contributed to AFR Furniture Rental’s agility while a wireless 4G LTE back-up helps keep operations up and running.

“A complex and growing business like AFR Furniture Rental requires advanced technological support to be successful. Whether it’s network connectivity to keep teams across the country connected or advanced security to help protect data, Comcast Business can deliver the right technology solutions to support and enhance operations,” said Michael Louden, Regional Vice President of Comcast’s Freedom Region. “Comcast Business is proud of its long-standing relationship with AFR Furniture Rental and the ability to meet their needs today and into the future.”
