The Customer

A large defense contractor in Central Florida with over 100 employees faced new cybersecurity and compliance requirements following the DFARS/NIST 800-171 rules. While they had been serviced by a large and reputable managed IT services provider for several years, it was clear that the MSP had little experience with strict cybersecurity controls. The contractor not only needed an MSP with specific subject matter experience, but the provider also needed to deliver a comprehensive solution offering to encompass various control areas.

The Customer’s Challenges:

on-premises and in the cloud

IT Team Resources
