L to R: Aidan McEvoy, Sales Director, Zinopy and Lloyd Spendlove, IT Services Manager, LeasePlan Information Services Citrix network solution will boost performance, reliability and security for LeasePlan all while making cost-savings Dublin-based LeasePlan Information Services was responsible for the installation and management of the solution for over 110 branch offices in 32 countries worldwide Offices using new platform provide return on investment within 12-18 months Zinopy, the trusted workspace virtualisation and information security specialists, is announcing the implementation and management of an advanced network solution for LeasePlan Information Services. The solution will boost performance, reliability and security for LeasePlan, all while making cost-savings. LeasePlan is one of the world’s leading Car-as-a-Service companies, with over 1.8 million vehicles under management. Its Dublin-based subsidiary, LeasePlan Information Services, provides a full range of ICT services to over 110 branch offices located in 32 countries across the globe. To match the company’s growth, a challenge for LeasePlan Information Services was maintaining a stable and high-performing network capable of connecting all its locations. With customers placing an increasing importance on rich content and video, a new approach was needed. Zinopy, LeasePlan Information Services’ long-standing strategic partner, encouraged LeasePlan to adopt Citrix’s NetScaler Software Defined Wide Area Network (SD-WAN) as a solution to this challenge. As Ireland’s leading Citrix Platinum Solution Specialist, Zinopy was uniquely placed to deploy the new network solution across LeasePlan’s branch offices. Within the next 18 months, Zinopy will implement this new solution in all 110 of LeasePlan branch offices. This will cut both maintenance and installation costs for the company. LeasePlan has seen a return on investment within 12-18 months in locations connected via SD-WAN, and expects further cost-savings in these offices compared to the legacy solution. The upgrade has also improved availability and security for LeasePlan. SD-WAN uses multiple circuits, from the public internet to 4G, ensuring that should any network link fail, the remaining paths will guarantee that clients experience zero loss of service. Citrix NetScaler SD-WAN provides an additional layer of security through an in-built firewall and combined with a Secure Web Gateway solution, such as zScaler, provides secure local breakout to the Internet and cloud services. Lloyd Spendlove, IT Services Manager at LeasePlan Information Services, said: “LeasePlan and Zinopy have developed a strong and successful relationship over more than ten years. We were fully confident in Zinopy’s ability to deliver the solution, and have found the upgrade to be a great success. Our team is responsible for ensuring every one of our users has reliable access to the applications they require to work effectively. With SD-WAN, users never have to worry about outages or performance issues”. Aidan McEvoy, Sales Director at Zinopy Limited, said: “As a strategic partner, it makes a huge difference when working with a company as progressive as LeasePlan. The company has proved itself to be a bold early adopter of this technology, and this underlines an aggressive move to the Cloud. We are delighted with the continued growth of LeasePlan, and its forward-looking perspective is an indicator of the strength of the company’s ambition.” [su_button url="http://www.zinopy.ie/casestudies/leaseplan-sd-wan-case-study-2018/" target="blank" style="flat" background="#b43f97" size="12" radius="5"]Read the Case Study[/su_button] [embed]https://youtu.be/4Hq-yryxfS0[/embed]read more

John Ryan, CEO, Zinopy. Sunday Business Post - Managed Services Supplement, March 25th, 2018 John Ryan of Zinopy says the advent of GDPR is changing firms’ mindsets - By Quinton O'Reilly The best defence is a proactive approach, and Zinopy has equipped itself with the means to do this. “[Businesses] can’t abdicate their responsibilities; we monitor their environment but they’re responsible for the consequences,” says John Ryan, chief executive of Zinopy. “We use the analogy of the alarm system, the alarm being the technology and the monitoring being us, but then the customer has got to go and change the locks if the keys have been stolen or repair the window or put in extra locks if they’ve been breached.” If there’s one thing that Ryan has noticed, it’s that security has come to the fore for businesses. It’s been a slow process, but the upcoming GDPR regulation is one aspect that is helping change this mindset. “What’s bringing it out to the fore is the regulatory environment, where the regulations are catching up,” he says. “People are now beginning to say, before ‘it was in my own hands, I lived or died by it but now I have regulations that I need to comply with, possibly hefty fines as well’. “The attacks are escalating but also people’s consciousness of them is increasing. If you look at a piece of malware, the mean time it sits somewhere before discovery is about 150 days. It was 250 days, now it is 150, and it keeps dropping. That’s because people are waking up to the issues about attacks.” The sheer rate of change is something that’s apparent in the tech industry as a whole, but especially in cybersecurity. Ryan says that Zinopy's services allow companies who can’t invest in security personnel a significant advantage, as many features are under the one umbrella, instead of being scattered across different services. “Over the years, they’ve also put on increasing complexity in their environment so they put in solutions, typically point solutions to address the threats, started way back in 1994. We were one of the first companies to bring firewalls into the country,” says Ryan.“At that point, people thought having a firewall meant they were safe but we’ve been selling a lot of solutions since then in terms of advanced malware protection, URL filtering, web gateways, IPS, you name it and it’s come in. “On average, customers would have up to 40 point solutions or maybe even more, larger organisations might have up to 80 point solutions, from maybe 30 or 40 different vendors because it was a best-of-breed type situation. Nobody had the entire story so that’s [a] challenge that customers face, how do they manage all this infrastructure and how do they get visibility of it.” With a mixture of monitoring, detection and response methods, Ryan is confident that Zinopy can deal with the threats that emerge. In recent months, it moved into its new Security Operations Centre which will give it more robust capabilities when dealing with problems. Yet the main aim is to ensure problems are detected before damage is done. “We work with preventing solutions, we monitor them, keep them up to date, consume the logs, but a lot of our effort is on the other areas and trying to identify issues as early as possible, explains Ryan. “To thwart them by blocking the chain, knocking off the issues as they arise as opposed to waiting until there’s a big incident.” [su_button url="http://info.zinopy.ie/zinopy-security-intelligence-service" target="blank" style="flat" background="#b43f97" size="12" radius="5" icon="icon: file-text"]Read more about Zinopy's Managed Security Services[/su_button] [su_button url="http://www.zinopy.ie/contact/" target="blank" style="flat" background="#8cc63f" size="12" radius="5" icon="icon: comment"]Contact Us Today[/su_button]read more
