The inside track to threat protection.

Security threats are becoming increasingly numerous and sophisticated – as are the technologies available to protect against them. As a result, a lot of organisations are sitting with a tangled web of disparate security solutions. That makes it easy for gaps to creep in, and difficult to investigate and resolve the threats that break through. Microsoft’s powerful security features make it much easier to build a unified security stance. This can improve management, reduce

admin, minimise support time and slash third-party security costs. However, understanding the options available within each licence level – and how to configure them optimally – isn’t easy.

Neither is planning a comprehensive – yet practical – security strategy that takes you from where you are to where you need to be.

How can we help?

As Microsoft cloud security experts, we specialise in creating practical, actionable security strategies centred on Microsoft’s native capabilities.
We’ll work with you to understand your unique security requirements and the people, processes and technology you have in play. We can then identify any gaps and inefficiencies based on industry best practices like Microsoft’s Zero Trust security model.
We use this information to create a pragmatic plan of action, taking into account your specific security priorities, budget and current technology. Maximising your Microsoft 365 ROI is a key part of our service. We always include advice on optimising configuration to get more from your licencing.
Use our skills for assessment and strategy only, or let us work with you throughout your deployment. Compliance and governance strategies can be added, too.
