Saved purchasing time We selected Khipu Networks following a rigorous tender process, saving you time and money so you don’t have to undertake your own procurement exercise.
The service is available to UK higher education (HE) institutions, further education (FE) colleges and research councils.
Services are also provided to other organisations, such as local authorities, which work in the areas of education, training or research.
These services are combined into four different packages. The first three are provided as managed services and the fourth is a self-managed approach where Khipu Networks provide maintenance and support:
PCI-DSS scan - scanning of named public facing IP addresses for PCI compliance with self-assessment or PCI-DSS ASV certification through a centrally hosted solution
External and URL scan - scanning public facing IP addresses and website URLs through a centrally hosted solution
Internal scan - scanning of internal assets through a deployed device/sensor or tunnelled connection
Supported appliance - includes all other packages except PCI-DSS ASV using a deployed appliance supported by Khipu Networks.
You can select which of these four packages will best meet your organisation’s requirements.
In addition, customers taking any of these services will also benefit from access to a comprehensive vulnerability information service that helps to keep track of announcements, vulnerabilities and patches about your IT infrastructure environment.
