SOLUTION AND RESULTS

Maximized Productivity and Security

Centre utilized Microsoft Azure, a cloud solution, to seal customer-related data, promote operational efficiency, and minimize costs. Azure enabled software applications to scale quickly to support growth, increase speed, and safeguard reliability. In addition, Centre utilized DDOS and botnet protection through Cloudflare. This eliminated vulnerabilities caused by outdated and unsupported hardware, exponentially increasing security.

LOOKING TO THE FUTURE

Increased Productivity

Centre continues to increase ROI through further cost optimization with increased flexibility by implementing auto-scaling and enabling apps to automatically adjust to changing demand. Next steps also include enhancing features of cloud security to prevent region-wide outages during a disaster recovery scenario.
