Back to Success Story List

I go back to Square1 because...

...they help fill the skills gap.

Our reputation as a leading IT reseller is built on 15 years of delivering technical expertise, best practice analysis and performance technologies to both corporate and public sector end-users. Our unique approach, skills and product knowledge places our business in the ideal position to solve and build solutions for today’s modern IT issues resulting from ever-changing business requirements.

Our drive to consistently increase our customer’s operational efficiency includes a business framework that extends beyond the bounds of our own organisation; and when required to call upon selected partners to assist in the delivery of IT services, tools and applications that makes our users more efficient and successful.

On one recent project for a customer of managed office environments their requirement was of such a complex nature, we needed to call upon the technical engineering expertise of our professional services and distribution partner Square 1 Products.

Our customer required a flexible and cost-effective network security solution of next-generation firewalls to guarantee guarded security perimeters and the execution of individual network security policies.


Square 1 Products technical team lead by their Chief Technical Officer are continually developing their IT acumen and working with the latest multi-vendor networking technology.

The primary element of the project was that each business residing within the office building required their own personalised networking security solution. Square 1 Products designed multiple virtual firewall gateways using multiple security context and IPS (Intrusion Prevention Systems) running on a pair of Cisco’s latest firewall hardware to create resilience to minimise the chance of downtime.

As well as designing and configuring the project, Square 1 Products proved themselves as a complete one-stop solution provider by supplying the hardware, installing it on-site and integrating the system into the existing network infrastructure.


The professionalism of Square 1 Products and the simplicity of which they support us with complex customer requirements helps us to drive our business into new territories with the latest multi-vendor technologies.

As a true solutions provider incorporating hardware, professional services and their extensive networking and IT knowledge, we endeavour, where possible, to include them on every project.
