Sheffield Hallam University chooses KHIPU Networks Security Operations Centre (SOC) to provide “around the clock” proactive cyber threat prevention.

Thursday 27th October, 2022

KHIPU Networks Limited the cyber security company, today announced that their Security Operations Centre (SOC) has been chosen by Sheffield Hallam University to provide 24x7x365 cyber threat monitoring, detection and response services.

“Without having out of hours 24x7x365 cyber threat monitoring, protection and incident response is a huge risk for any organisation. To address this we have chosen KHIPU’s SOC to provide Extended Managed Detection and Response. Key reasons why we selected KHIPU include that their SOC is staffed by cyber experts who are always available, their service integrates into our existing environment and doesn’t just alert, it protects and prevents threats, and their credibility in the sector”. Dave Thornley, Head of Digital Architecture, Digital Technology Services, Sheffield Hallam University

Not just any SOC… An Education Sector Developed SOC

“Building a cyber security service that meets the needs of HE and FE institutions takes time. In fact, it’s taken KHIPU over two years to develop and deliver a mature SOC that has the expertise, technology and processes to protect institutions from the ever-changing cyber threat landscape. We are very pleased that Sheffield Hallam University has recognised this and decided to partner with KHIPU to embark on their SOC journey”. Guy Jermany, CIO, KHIPU Networks

“KHIPU’s SOC service gives us the granular visibility we’ve never had before. We can’t be certain what comes in through an endpoint. Cortex XDR, as part of the KHIPU XMDR SOC Service, ensures the university has a trusted endpoint and network protection strategy proven to identify, stop, and prevent attacks”. James Eaglesfield, Head of IT Governance and Portfolio, University of Derby

“After reviewing and trialling different technologies, we chose KHIPU to integrate their Palo Alto Cortex XDR solution in with our Palo Alto firewall estate, which provides a standardised approach to cyber security prevention and detection. Their service also includes a 24x7x365 incident response team that have expert knowledge, experience and capabilities in monitoring and detecting threats throughout our multi- site network. We have a successful working relationship with KHIPU and look forward to their continued support and services and to also share our experiences with institutions across the educational sector”.
