Imerja has been selected to improve the critical firewall infrastructure at The Royal Mint’s secure headquarters in South Wales.
Following a competitive tender, Imerja was chosen to devise and implement a suitably robust security solution, which delivers both costs saving and reduced overheads – proposing a solution based on the market leading firewall technology from Check Point.
This is the latest project in a long-term relationship between Imerja and The Royal Mint. The IT firm has been a trusted security partner for the worldwide coin-maker’s since 2009, helping to protecting its information and infrastructure from security breaches and minimising the risks that could impact on brand reputation and revenue.
The Royal Mint has over 1,000 years of history and is a major export mint with around 15% of the worldwide market. Based in South Wales and guarded by the Ministry of Defence 24×7, the business employs over 900 people and produces 90 million coins per week, which equates to around five billion coins a year.
Ian Jackson, managing director at Imerja said: “The Royal Mint is now using the same firewall solution as all Fortune 500 companies, and is strategically placed for growth in the deployment of IT infrastructure in an increasingly IT pervasive world.
“We relish every opportunity to work along The Royal Mint’s internal team – whether to discuss ideas, develop projects or implement solutions – and are looking forward to building on this partnership in years to come.”
Jeremy Davies, Network Manager at The Royal Mint said: “Imerja fully understood the challenge and went the extra mile during the firewall replacement project – not only proposing superior technology but also managing commercial discussions with the vendor. We trust the team implicitly and know that our infrastructure will meet future demands.”
