Dakota Blue Consulting Ltd provide outsourced HR and Training solutions for companies in Kent and London.
Being a small company they had never used an IT company before, always managing their IT internally. However, as they grew they needed to outsource their IT to allow them to focus on the business itself.

LP Networks were engaged and took Dakota Blue through a program of IT changes, migrating the platform from Google Apps to Office365. Then increased security was applied to both the Office365 tenancy and following that the Endpoint devices with better Virus, Ransomware and web filtering protection.
Then to further increase compliance, managed encryption was put in place.
