Prodec and Introbiz have been working closely over the past few months to manage the migration of our email system. The service really was easy with Prodec, the team were quick and efficient and extremely skilled.
You can read the case study below.
Introbiz is an award-winning networking and events business based in Cardiff. Founded in 2009, Introbiz has quickly grown to become one of the most respected business networks in South Wales, hosting weekly networking events and an annual business exhibition that attracts high profile guest speakers and some of the UK’s largest brands.
How Prodec Helped Introbiz
Introbiz were in need of an experienced technology partner to manage the migration of an old Microsoft 2010 exchange cluster licence to Microsoft Office 365. As a high profile networking and events company, it was important for Introbiz employees to be able to work remotely and have secure access to emails whilst on the move and setting up events.
Prodec’s skilled team of Microsoft specialists put forward a range of services to help Introbiz achieve what they need. The Microsoft 2010 exchange cluster licence was upgraded to Microsoft Office 365, enabling 100GB of mailbox storage and the ability to send messages up to 150MB in size. Introbiz also gained the benefit of In-Place Archiving, a premium Office 365 feature which provides users with unlimited storage.
Security is a constant priority for Introbiz, so it was important that they also had a solution that would ensure sensitive information, such as financial data or personally identifiable information, was always protected. The data loss prevention (DLP) policy in Office 365 means Introbiz now has greater levels of visibility, control and protection over its sensitive data. The DLP policy can search by locations or even individual users so it is easier to trace and identify documents with sensitive data. It is also possible to prevent sensitive information from being shared by accident, helping Introbiz employees to remain compliant without disrupting their workflow.
At Introbiz we’re a busy team and always on the move. Prodec migrated our services to the cloud allowing us to access our emails securely and work remotely no matter where we are, fully resilient with no one single point of failure. With another impending office relocation, knowing that our services are all cloud based, it’s one less thing to have to worry about!
