Helping FSI customers grow

Modernising infrastructure to meet growth ambitions

We modernised The ai Corporation’s core payment solution as part of a migration to Azure. We delivered a Well-Architected migration with security, compliance and performance best practices designed from the start.

Optimising and managing Azure to regain control

We provide WPA with the cost savings and control they needed to further innovate their business. We reviewed and optimised their environment and Landing Zone. As Cloud Direct managed service customers, they now benefit from regular proactive cost, security and performance monitoring and optimisations. Reducing Azure spending gave WPA the ability to invest in further innovation.

Deploying Sentinel for cloud-based security monitoring

We designed and deployed Azure sentinel to keep Hargreaves Lansdown’s business and customer data secure. Hargreaves Lansdown was eager to transform the security monitoring of sensitive customer data with Microsoft Sentinel. We worked with them to understand their data and to subsequently design and deploy Sentinel, integrating with their security operations centre (SOC).
