 London, UK: 22/9/16: 10.00 hrs BST – At IP EXPO Europe 2016, Zycko and Wick Hill – now both part of the recently formed Nuvias Group – will be showcasing the latest advances in networking, security, datacentre management and unified communications. The Wick and Zycko Village – comprising three separate island sites and nine individual stands – will feature industry leading vendors such as Check Point, Malwarebytes, Tenable, VASCO, Riverbed, Lifesize and ProLabs.

“IP EXPO Europe has become a premier event in the enterprise IT calendar and provides an ideal platform to present our expanded range of products under the Nuvias banner to our partners and their customers,” said Lee Driscoll, chief sales officer at Zycko. “The combined strengths of Wick Hill and Zycko provide a high-quality, in-depth range of solutions for advanced networking and security backed up by high standards of value added services.”

IT security will be a strong theme at this year’s show, according to Ian Kilpatrick, chairman Wick Hill Group. He commented:  “IT security is now a business risk considered alongside other business risks at board level. CEOs now need to know for themselves that their businesses are secure and compliant, so visibility and high level reporting are vital components of today’s security solutions.  And with the realisation that attacks such as ransomware are increasingly likely, boards also need to be sure that they have the technologies and processes in place to rapidly identity and remediate breaches. We will be presenting a number of vendor solutions on our stands to deal with these issues.”

Visitors to the Zycko and Wick Hill Village will be able to meet with representatives, watch live presentations and product demos, discuss future business opportunities and get the opportunity to win a share of £1,000 on Instant Win scratchcards.
