One of the UK’s largest fire and rescue services chooses leading encryption solution to meet data protection legislation and compliance requirements
APV had identified a need to enhance security on the Invensys WAN and also wanted to find out more about network use, current network applications and status. Establishing baseline current bandwidth usage on the Group WAN was a key stage of a WAN reorganisation project. IP Performance provided a solution based on the Allot Communications NetEnforcer NE402, which gave Invensys/APV bandwidth management with various levels of traffic shaping.
Pinewood Studios recently opened up a new department carrying out Film & Audio restoration, and a lot of new equipment needed to be purchased and installed quickly. They all needed to be interlinked to a central Storage Area Network (SAN), and all the workstations and servers needed to be accessed from different positions. IP Performance were able to design a solution based on the Avocent HMX family of KVM-over-IP switched extender systems and the HMX Manager appliance, a hardened Linux server which manages the connection brokerage and session switching across a copper CAT5e Gigabit Ethernet switched network infrastructure.
After a review of its existing log management system, University of Nottingham concluded it did not have the capacity to manage growing data logging needs. LogRhythm’s log management and SIEM 2.0 (Security Information and Event Management) technology was implemented to prepare for future logging requirements and gain more insight into what is happening across its IT infrastructure.
The Wellcome Trust Sanger Institute is one of the world’s leading genome centres. The Institute runs a bespoke IT system to allow for the dynamic nature of the applications and content. The back-end applications, which are used to process the raw research data, are developed by the biologists and run on blade servers at the in-house data centre. A second data centre provides back-up. Many of the Institute’s core services – including exchange and Unix mail servers – are virtualised. The Institute required a resilient website able to cope with hundreds of sImultaneous requests.They were usIng an open-source load balancer to manage the traffIc, but it had limitatIons on the number of requests which could be processed at one time, which often saw the back-end applications falling over. IP Performance were able to provide the control and flexibility needed with the Riverbed Application Delivery Controller (ADC).
