IP Performance to present at SOCITM Share National event – Modernising ICT service delivery

IP Performance Senior Engineer Duncan Ross will be delivering an insightful and educational presentation titled “The Future of Secure Access” at the virtual SOCITM conference Share National Manchester, this Thursday 22nd October 2020 at 1.25pm.

The event theme is Modernising ICT service delivery and we hope you can join us by reserving your (virtual) place below!


“Even before the response of local public services to Covid-19, ICT service delivery was no longer business as usual. We continue to modernise and make sense of the opportunities offered by existing and emerging technologies, while still managing ongoing funding challenges and making sure that the changing expectations of service users are met.

Join us to learn and share best practise about how we make this happen.”

Duncan’s presentation “The Future of Secure Access” will examine the following, based on his extensive network security architecture experience:

  • The Old Days – VPN, DMZ, Perimeter based networks.
  • New Architectures – Zero Trust Model – Framework
  • Implementing Zero Trust  – Service Initiated ZTNA – Google Beyond Corp
  • Implementing Zero Trust  – Endpoint Initiated ZTNA – Software Defined Perimeter
  • SDP Feature and Benefits
  • SDP Example
  • Pulse Secure – PZTA Network Architecture
  • ‘We are really happy with the Juniper Mist solution provided by IP Performance and in fact when you look at the number of daily connections I would say it’s exceeded our expectations, for example in our Coatbridge campus the feedback from all staff and students for a number of years has been really negative regarding the Wifi but right now we currently have 600 users connected. The ability to look at the monitor and see what the trends are in terms of time-to-connect and successful connections also gives us the ability to see a problem before it impacts on a number of users. Therefore this reduces the amount of Wifi issues that are submitted to our helpdesk, so this again shows that the solution works.’
