IT-Start, the north west’s leading IT support provider, has announced a partnership to become a supplier of HP TippingPoint Intrusion Prevention System (IPS) solutions to customers throughout the north of England.

As the leading global provider of network security solutions, HP TippingPoint provides IPS services to businesses around the world, but IT-Start will be one of the first suppliers for the company in the north of England.

IT-Start has offices in both Manchester and Sheffield and works with companies across the north of England to provide full IT solutions and maintenance. The partnership with HP TippingPoint allows the company to offer full IPS services, with HP TippingPoint’s technology detecting and blocking any unwanted traffic and reacting in real-time to protect the network.

IT-Start Director, Lee Wrall, says: "The partnership with HP TippingPoint allows us to offer our clients a whole new level of protection in the form of threat detection that has achieved international recognition and is used by organisations around the world.

"Over the past few months, there have been several incidents of large companies suffering data leaks due to inadequate security, which can be very damaging to a business’ reputation and client relationships. We want to offer our customers the best method of data protection available, which we believe is through HP TippingPoint’s IPS technology and are proud to have become one of the first IT consultancies in the north of England to partner with the company."

Operating through a central control unit, IT-Start will now be able to provide HP TippingPoint’s IPS solutions spanning all different customer requirements, ranging from 20Mbps up to and beyond 10Gbps in spectrum performance.

In addition to HP TippingPoint, IT-Start also works with Cisco and Microsoft, providing IT infrastructure support, end user support & full IT outsourcing solutions to clients large and small.
