GPSJ is a great source for professionals in the government & public sectors, and informs them of the latest breaking news and exclusive footage. We are very happy and proud of our customer being highlighted in such a valuable publication!

A few excerpts below…

“With the help of least privilege management, the University of Winchester has consistent, robust security policies campus-wide, balancing the need to give staff flexibility when it is needed, without impacting on security or creating additional workload for the IT department.”

“PowerBroker for Windows has helped the University of Winchester eliminate administrator rights within its IT environment while simultaneously improving security and decreasing malware attacks, with the added bonus of decreasing the time spent dealing with user support issues. Using PowerBroker’s ease of policy configuration, the University has deployed unified security policies across its IT environment.”
