Apr 1, 2022

Key Drivers and Business Outcomes

The goal of any modern cybersecurity program is to streamline the people, processes, and technology that drive an organization forward.  For one Ontario-based retail Crown Corporation, realizing this goal required significant changed throughout the company. 

Complex operational requirements, poor visibility into security processes, legacy infrastructure, and increasing demand meant internal teams were stretched too thin to prioritize security. The added challenge of hiring, training, and retaining staff only compounded that problem. The need for a solution that leveraged the latest in cloud technology, automation, and machine learning was clear.

Through the combination of managed security services, guided support, training, onboarding, and bespoke technologies, the company was able to transition to a cloud-native cybersecurity solution in only 90 days.
