      Global Private Cloud, VDI and Security Deployment

      Clinical Network Services (CNS) is an Australian, full service Contract Research Organisation specialising in the planning and management of Phase I & II clinical trials for SME biotech companies. CNS approached Deployus for a solution that would them to secure and consisten access to their highly valuable intellectual property and corporate assets with distributed world offices and access. CNS also required a mult layered security platform which took into account the strict I.T security and compliance protocols in place within the clinical research sector.

      The Challenge

      The Deployus team responded to CNS with a private clout solution that incorporated full virtualisation distributed load balanced data centres each incorporating: desktop replacement, application presentation and BYOD to allow CNS employess to operate with the same look and feel on any device, anywhere in the world and most importantly, in a completely secure environment. The intelligent solution that was ultimately implemented allowed CNS to present information as a picture when viewed outside the corporate network to ensure no data transfer took place and information assets remained protected.

      Security By Design

      In addition to providing a robust redundant and resilient architecture, Deployus designed and maintain a layered adaptive security and ?authentication system extending from the endpoint, to the next work perimeter and to Cloud Based SaaS applications.  Deployus and CNS actively monitor, test and improve this system as the modern threat landscape continues to evolve. Since this system has been implemented no data breaches have occurred despite numerous breach attempts.

      The Solution

      To provide CNS with a complete solution, Deployus procured all equipment associated with the new platform. The hardware and software sourced included Palo Alto next generation firewalls, F5 Networks Big-IP Application Delivery controllers, and Citrix XenApp application delivery/application virtualisation/shared desktop presentation and VMware vSphere virtualisation. This system continues to be added to and improved on an Agile ongoing basis as business requirements evolve.

      Due to the global nature of CNS operations high uptime is a key requirement to this deployment and all systems were designed to be fault tolerant and redundant using Active/Active, Active/Passive, and Replicated systems, each defined by a specific SLA within the business.  Replication and data continuity is provided in part by using Veeam Backup and Replication technologies for an “always on business”.

      The value that the Deployus team was able to deliver for CNS will be realised for several years to come. CNS, with offices around the world, now operates a ‘big business’ scalable and highly secure desktop and application delivery platform. CNS has the ability to very easily expand internationally using centralised data and a presentation solution allowing staff to collaborate easily, no matter where they’re based all while retaining full control of confidential data. Commercially, CNS realised the benefits of the rollout immediately via the reduced management costs associated with their operating environment.
