  • Solutions need to be practical – if the solution cannot be operated or maintained easily it is not a solution.

Track record

Below are some examples of the types of engagements we have delivered.

Large Service Organisation

The organisation provides customer services with the internet and contact centre providing the “face” of the organisation to the general public. These business critical services are delivered from two NZ based data centres that contain the necessary wrap around technology services such as networking and security. The infrastructure platform providing the security aspects posed a number of challenges to the client, these being:

  • The vendor support for the infrastructure was approaching end of life
  • The complexity of the existing architecture did not support future business initiatives
  • The risk of major impact to the business during any technology refresh

 

FINAO Professional Services were engaged to design, implement the new security infrastructure as well as enabling next generation security features such as Anti-Malware detection/prevention, IPS and SEIM functionality. The engagement had to consolidate multiple legacy security platforms/policies onto a new technology platform while maintaining availability of services and minimising business disruption.

FINAO Professional services delivered the new platform and successfully migrated services onto the new technology platform without causing disruption to the business in a time frame that exceeded the client’s expectations. Planning and quality assurance was the key to this success with the majority of time spent planning and reviewing the complex implementation plans that involved multiple parties.

The key outcomes for the client were:

  • No unplanned business disruption
  • Operational efficiencies due to simplified architecture
  • Improved security posture due to next Gen features in use
  • Minimal disruption to normal operations for the duration of the project (3 months)
