With the belief that there is no box tick solution for this kind of project, we approached the brief with an open mind. After taking the time to understand Izzy, YACAH and their future goals, we developed an MVP to enable financial and product confidence before undergoing further project stages. We made sure the process was collaborative and educational for the YACAH team. Throughout the project, Truis Connect ensured YACAH had streamlined and visible communications, operations and orders.
Cisco Meraki Cloud managed solution
A Cisco Meraki cloud managed solution was the Truis solution for Izzy, this enabled him to manage his network from home and out in the field. We recommended the Meraki MS120 Series switching with MR36 WiFi 6 access points, along with the Meraki Z3 and MX65 firewalls. The Meraki intuitive browser-based application allowed Izzy to quickly monitor all his networks and spin up new devices with the Meraki Systems manager platform. This completely changed the game for Izzy, his previous set up involved the manual task of traveling to each site to install software and set devices up. Now, with the Meraki system Izzy could do it from the comfort of his own office with ease.
The Security Layer
With the healthcare industry reeling from a number of cyber security threats, security was top of mind for Izzy. Client’s data being topmost priority to protect if a data breach incident were to occur. To add that extra layer of security, Cisco Umbrella was implemented into the mix. This allowed Izzy to monitor, in real-time, any incidents that might threaten the organisation.
Coupled with Cisco Umbrella, Sophos Endpoint protection was also introduced to endpoint devices at YACAH. This software was rolled out to all devices in the field and on-premises as an essential layer of additional protection at the end user level.
Knowing that backup and disaster recovery is an essential part of his overall security strategy, Izzy wanted to ensure that if there was an attack YACAH could recover as quickly as possible. Implemented into his security strategy was Veeam Disaster Recovery as a service for Microsoft Office 365, allowing regular backups to be running and the opportunity to back up at the click of a button. This included not only crucial data points in the business but also his Hyper-V infrastructure, all exchange account data, Sharepoint and OneDrive accounts.
To test the environment, Truis conducted a penetration test of the network. Izzy was happy to report back to YACAH the successes of his endeavor and give piece of mind to all stakeholders within the business.
