A recent project led to us being awarded ‘Data Security and Compliance Project of the Year’ at last nights SDC Awards at the Royal Garden Hotel, London. We were delighted to pick up such a prestigious award, that demonstrates the strong and innovative data security solutions that we deliver.
Our client installed a site-wide connected mobility solution with enterprise-class security.
The objective was to modernise our clients workspace and increase working mobility allowing their accountants to operate from anywhere in the world. The principal challenge as a financial house was that they are heavily governed by GDPR and regulatory bodies. We overcame this challenge by creating a private cloud solution enabling them to standardise the devices within their office, resulting in; hot-desking and the adoption of a BYOD policy for mobile workers, all without compromising security.
We carried out the installation, which included an on-site private cloud solution with multi-factor authentication (MFA), layer 7 security firewall and industry-leading end point detection and response, all monitored by a 24/7 and 365 days a year off-site service centre.
Their Managing Director said: “The UK is now the most targeted nation for cyberattacks and as a professional services firm handling payroll, pension and taxation and dealing with mergers and acquisitions as well as litigation matters, we hold a lot of sensitive data. We have always made client confidentiality our priority, but with the EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) coming into force in May last year, data privacy was taken to an entirely new level. We have embraced this change and are using it to fuel strategic advancement in our business. All our staff now use the same technology with the latest updates on a system that is faster, smarter and accessible from anywhere. We are saving around 12 fee earning hours a day in operational efficiencies and reduced downtime. And, importantly, we can give clients the information they need quicker, safer and more accurately than ever before.”
