Introducing IT Director as Service

Introducing IT Director as Service

Network ROI are introducing a new IT Director consultancy service aimed at SME’s and organisations who want to reboot their IT strategy.

In a year like no other organisations have been forced to rethink and prioritise what matters most to their business. In current climate many businesses and smaller organisations don’t have the budget to take on a senior full-time resource. But they still need expert advice that helps them to re-evaluate their business-critical issues, ensuring that they make smart investments for the future.

Sean Elliot, Network ROI founder and Chairman said: “We are delighted to introduce a new service for small and medium enterprises who may lack strategic IT leadership. The Coronavirus pandemic has forced many companies to find new ways of working or reinvent their business models, accelerating the pace of digital transformation and remote working.

IT Director as a Service enables organisations who don’t want the permanent commitment of a senior fulltime employee to hire a specialist who can uncover technology gaps or give them strategic board level advice on key issues such as information security”.

The service assists SME’s who need help solving their key challenges including:

–  IT cost containment and optimisation,

–  Digital infrastructure and digital transformation

–  Business systems integration

–  Risk management and security

The new service can scale up or down as organisations require.  We take a personal approach to each client, examining both the immediate business goals and the longer-term ambitions of an organisation before coming up with an actionable plan they can take forward.

My1Login simplifies cybersecurity for Natural Power

My1Login simplifies cybersecurity for Natural Power

Network ROI security partner, My1Login recently helped Natural Power simplify cybersecurity with its innovative and award-winning Identity Access Management software.

With locations in the UK, France, Ireland and the US – among others, Natural Power has complex information security requirements. Since the introduction of the GDPR in May 2018, they, like many other organisations needed to have a tighter grip on data protection controls to eliminate the possibility of amassing huge fines. Managing a sophisticated technology estate across multiple continents and more than 340 users is a tricky task.

My1Login is easy to use and set up

Calum McLean, Head of Innovation and Data at Natural Power praised My1Login for its ease of use and short set-up time. The innovative software has helped Natural Power overcome two significant challenges; shadow IT and weak passwords.

Eliminate the threat of shadow IT

Staff members storing files in non-designated cloud apps was a big problem at Natural Power. With almost 600 instances of such applications found by My1Login, Natural Power had no way of accessing these files if a staff member left the business, which in turn made tracking and auditing an almost impossible task.

Weak passwords are no longer a thing!

Weak and reused passwords were another problem at Natural Power, as they are in many organisations. My1Login removes the problem of weak passwords by cleverly generating a new, secure password that the user doesn’t even need to see or know, increasing security and ease of use for users and administrators alike.

My1Login makes systems faster and easier to access, providing a productivity boost. Users were delighted on how user-friendly, seamless and transparent the software is. On the technical front, My1Login integrates with Active Directory, simplifying user management and reducing the burden on the IT department. Client-side password encryption instead of server-side provides more control, further streamlining the security, control and management of the software.
