Edgbaston Investment Partners needed a specialist IT partner who could help them navigate their way into the public cloud and help transform their technology as well as safeguard their IT services. Edgbaston undertook due diligence with a cloud readiness assessment before selecting the technology.
As Edgbaston’s managed IT and cyber-security partner, Lanware delivers its flagship Finance Forward 365 service, which provides the latest modern workplace technology and allows the team to operate globally, independent of device or location. Moving away from a fixed private cloud platform, Edgbaston embraces the full extent of Microsoft’s 365 and Azure offerings and opens the door to further transform its business with the Microsoft Power platform.
The service includes a fully managed Azure Virtual Desktop, Microsoft 365 and Microsoft Teams for unified collaboration, with compliant recording from Verint. Edgbaston adopts the full suite of native Microsoft enterprise security controls and the market-leading Darktrace Enterprise Immune System technology, which integrates with the Microsoft Cloud and uses AI to constantly build up a picture around every user, endpoint and application. Combined with Lanware’s Security Operations Centre, Edgbaston is protected against cyber threats and ensures the firm adheres to strict regulatory requirements.
“As we navigate the business through regulatory complexity, it’s reassuring to know that Lanware is taking care of our technology. While we focus on our core business, Lanware will be ensuring we can work securely from anywhere, on any device – all via Microsoft Cloud.”
