Critical data requirement challenges: solved

The client was processing terabytes of critical data on a daily basis and faced escalating costs, uncontrolled and inconsistent performance, system outages, and deficient security.

CSDefend engineered and deployed a customized cloud platform which enabled the client to outsource their IT into CSDefend’s managed services environment.

Client Industry:


The Problem:

The intense demands of critical data processing were causing costs to spiral for our legal client.

These issues were destroying business performance and increasing operational risk. Internal resources for technology operations were inefficient and unable to deliver necessary quality for core business functions and additional IT investments were not providing improvement.

CSDefend customized and implemented an expert-engineered cloud platform, allowing the client to run key IT operations in a secure managed services environment.

This ensured system operations were mature and stabilized to meet or exceed formalized requirements for performance and security.

Client Benefits:
