Maintaining IT & telecom service 24/7
IT and telecommunications are the backbone of the digital economy. If they fail, customers suffer high value losses with every passing minute. At the same time, threats to networks and systems are constantly increasing in number and severity.
When a crisis hits, the immediate alerting of administrators, crisis teams and customers is crucial, especially if your own ICT infrastructure has become restricted or failed completely as a result of a critical incident.
The risks that technology services providers and their customers are exposed to include:
- Technical failure leading to service outages
- Fast-moving cyber attacks
- Data security breaches
- Critical events requiring building lockdown or evacuation
- Fire, flood or storm
- Supply chain disruption

Case Study - Managed Service Provider
A London based MSP needed a critical communications platform to support their work with a leading global provider of business-to-business conferences and events with 1,500 employees spread across six continents. The platform needed to be global, secure and able to track the receipt and completion of ticket items.
The MSP customer itself has around 150 employees spread across several sites in Europe and the Far East. Their client is even more globally spread with nine locations across six continents. This global spread presents a significant communications challenge in terms of delivery of critical messages and security.
The customer needed a critical communications platform that could guarantee delivery across multiple time zones and locations, with a number of different telecommunications carriers. Safe delivery of these messages was often critical to the availability of the client’s core systems.
