Learning Network South East
LeNSE (Learning Network South East) is one of the largest education Regional Network Operator’s in the UK and enjoys one of the most successful levels of service. LeNSE is owned by the nine leading Higher Education Institutions (HEIs) in the South East of England.
With sensitive data on students and educational matters held by its clients, LeNSE needed to ensure that the service they provided was secure, compliant and resistant to external threats.
“LeNSE has been a customer of Imerja for a number of years and both we and our individual clients appreciate the importance of Imerja’s services and the professionalism of its staff. We look forward to further years of support and assistance in this specialist area. “

Imerja has been working with LeNSE since 2005. Already a trusted partner with the network, Imerja was appointed the three year contract to provide LeNSE with the penetration test service. Imerja tailored its unified threat assessment (UTA) service to meet the exact requirements of LeNSE and its clients.
The penetration service follows industry best practice and delivers a robust and thorough assessment of each LeNSE client’s vulnerability to internet based security threats. An assessment of each clients overall exposure and risk to internet threats is also carried out.
With the results of the penetration tests, each client is able to understand instantly its own level of exposure to security threats from the internet. Armed with this information they are able to set departmental priorities, determine budget as appropriate, schedule resources and address the risks to ensure the institute does not face embarrassing, or potentially legal, damages. In addition each institute is also able to demonstrate compliance with governing body regulations.
Mike Byrne, CEO at LeNSE, commented on the project: “LeNSE has been a customer of Imerja for a number of years and both we and our individual clients appreciate the importance of Imerja’s services and the professionalism of its staff. We look forward to further years of support and assistance in this specialist area."
We’ve always been very pleased with the flexibility shown by Imerja
