Back to Case Studies
Bytes Security Partnerships (BSP) were invited to tender for the managed service business and decided to reassess Unipart’s requirements. BSP proposed a new and unique approach which would not only minimise capital expenditure but would deliver tangible TCO savings over a 3 year period with no need for a managed service or loss of in-house skills.
This proposal created a three year partnership, a co-managed service to provide Unipart the flexibility and control of a full in-house solution backed up by BSP’s technical specialists and strategic thought leadership

BSP provided a central security solution to support Unipart’s firewall replacement programme which included:
The project deliverables were up and running in under 6 months, this being a challenging implementation for a project of this scale and complexity. The latest releases of software were also rolled out quickly. Over the life of the project the Bytes managed system refreshes will future proof Unipart’s security systems.
The solution mirrors the simplicity of a managed service at reduced cost and with less internal administration which embraces the principles of the Unipart Way
By taking on the full range of BSP services (SPARC, SPARC Audit and SPARC Monitor) Unipart has a reduced TCO and leveraged a competitive advantage through working with the right partner.
Bytes Security Partnerships and Unipart have developed a close working relationship and the solution has delivered all the key elements of a fully managed service in the most cost effective way whilst taking advantage of the investments that Unipart had already made
