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.”
