Helping a Real Estate Firm to Recover after a Ransomware Attack
In 2020, a New York City-based real estate management firm was infected by ransomware. They backed up their servers but had not tested data restoration from backup in years nor had they backed up all user desktops. The attack left the company unable to operate.
Simplicity IT deployed a team of security experts, system engineers, and desktop technicians to eradicate the malware infection, identify and safely restore data, upgrade systems, and provide strategic guidance on improved security and IT maturity.
The real estate management firm was able to restore its operations with confidence. As a result of the financial burden caused by the attack, Simplicity IT implemented cost-efficient methods to improve their security and prevent future incidents.
How We Managed Operational Complexity for a Global Financial Services Firm
A global financial services firm found it challenging to manage, patch, update and maintain 16,000 desktops worldwide, plus mitigate security risks for remote workers.
Simplicity IT implemented a manageable, secure, and scalable modern desktop solution (Windows 10) tailored to the clients’ needs. We also included best practices and guidance on how to manage future challenges.
Delivering Windows as a service enabled the firm to plan for upgrades and patch deployments more efficiently. Expert guidance on managing the tools meant that the clients’ IT team could now be self-sufficient going forward.
Helping a Commercial Real Estate Firm Achieve Cost Savings & Overcome Remote Working Challenges
A commercial real estate firm headquartered in New York City found it challenging to manage desktops for their outsourced software development team and implement effective resource utilization. Due to the pandemic, the client also faced remote working constraints for their 6,000+ employees worldwide.
Simplicity IT deployed a scalable cloud-based solution (WVD) that allowed the client to manage company desktops securely, globally.
The solution enabled the client to achieve cost savings as they no longer had to deliver additional hardware. Rapid deployment of the solution allowed the client to maintain high productivity levels amongst remote workers.
