Perimeter Security – 10GB, 100GB and beyond – University of Southampton Case Study

Friday 4th September, 2015

As with all Education Institutions, protecting intellectual property and sensitive communications, providing the bandwidth and tools to support and accelerate academic research, as well as continually improving the student experience are all key priorities and challenges that have to be addressed. Therefore finding a cost-effective, reliable and high performance network security solution with multiple capabilities is critical. The University of Southampton, in partnership with Khipu Networks, have commissioned a single perimeter security environment to meet these priorities including;

  • Faster, more reliable and secure Janet connections
  • Increased application visibility and control by user
  • Solved throughput and network latency issues
  • Improved and expanded services to their users
  • Safe BYOD enablement throughout their campus
