Award-Winning Cybersecurity Solutions by Big Cloud Consultants & Aegis Innovators
Together, the winning organizations implemented powerful cybersecurity solutions that benefited businesses nationwide, impacting over 1,000 users across a Federal Credit Union, a Nonprofit Health Care Provider, and an Energy Manufacturer.
Implement Cybersecurity System for A Federal Credit Union
We implemented a Zero Trust cybersecurity system, including multi-factor authentication (MFA) and password replacements, and upgraded all 170 users from Microsoft 365 E3 to Microsoft 365 E5. This comprehensive security upgrade was achieved through automated deployment of over 150 tenant configurations, based on the NIST 800-173 security baseline.
Optimal Cybersecurity Protection for a Nonprofit Healthcare Provider
Like the cybersecurity overhaul, we upgraded 600 of their 780 users to Microsoft 365 E5 licenses from a mix of Office E1 and E3 licenses. The upgrade included implementing advanced security measures such as FIDO 2 security keys, Windows Hello for Business, and Microsoft Authenticator.
Future-Proofing Cybersecurity for An Energy Company
We onboarded Aegis Innovators, a leader in security, to handle an insider risk incident, identifying and closing security breaches caused by a rogue ex-employee. After thorough investigations, we identified the compromised account, terminated the security breaches, and enhanced additional security measures to prevent future insider threats.
“With a mutual goal of delivering robust solutions for clients, our collaboration ensured accessible support for each business,” continues Zimmerman. “This coveted award for Big Cloud Consultants and Aegis Innovators spotlights our joint effort of providing unparalleled professional and cloud security services to our clients.”
