Durham University Armed to Secure 60,000 Devices

Bradford Networks, an innovator in transforming network security through visibility, control and response, has partnered with Khipu Networks, one of their leading European cyber security integrators, to assist Durham University in England in better securing their campus-wide network by extending its dynamic network access control (NAC) solution.

“Organisations today must seriously consider the cyber threats that pose risk of data breach across all functions and Durham University continually looks to strengthen its network security to mitigate those risks” said Andrew Crowe senior IT consultant at Durham University. “We expect to see continued growth in network attached devices in the coming years due to continued growth in BYOD, multiple devices per user and further extension of the Internet of Things (IoT) - ensuring the protection of both end-user devices and the data network is essential to maintaining a secure environment for the University.”

“Durham University has been at the forefront of adopting technology for the campus and has been a valued, long-time customer of Khipu Networks,” said Matt Ashman, co-founder and sales director of Khipu Networks. “The extended use of their current Bradford Networks’ deployment, which is one of our key cyber security solutions that we focus on, takes advantage of the products scalable design to accommodate growing campus networks. Durham University should serve as a model for other universities who are facing similar challenges around network visibility and control.”

Bradford Networks’ patented Network Sentry solution allows organisations to attain the three critical facets of security: endpoint and network visibility, dynamic access control, and automated threat response. For over a decade, the company has been a leading solution provider for network security.

“With the advent of BYOD, multiple devices per user and the growth of IoT, Durham University is in a strong position to take advantage of Bradford Networks solutions to provide proper access and automate threat response and containment for its Campus Network” said Gary Mead, vice president of sales, EMEA.
