University of Southampton
One of Imerja’s longest standing clients, Imerja began working with Southampton University in 2004 to provide a support service for the University’s four firewalls. The University’s firewalls work in two clusters of two, one protecting the halls of residence and the other for the campus area. Imerja works remotely, assessing any issues that arise and diagnosing problems.
Over the years the University has proved to be an interesting and challenging client for Imerja. As a leading IT institution, world renowned for its involvement in cutting edge technologies, researchers are often experimenting and exploring with new methods and ideas.
“We’ve always been very pleased with the flexibility shown by Imerja, and the in-depth knowledge and availability of its engineers when needed.”

Historically, Southampton University was involved in the research for fiberoptics, a technology on which all modern global communications are based. Since then it has maintained its reputation for being at the forefront of IT research and education. The research, teaching and student activities often place a high demand on the University’s IT infrastructure and a robust firewall system is required for the University to be properly protected. Imerja is able to provide this protection and ensure that staff and students are working safely. The extension of Southampton's contract shows a solid relationship between Imerja and Southampton University, which will hopefully continue well into the future.
