The Background

Sunamp sought a trusted partner to enhance its cybersecurity posture in response to escalating cyber threats. As the business grew, the importance of comprehensive IT Managed Services for driving efficiency, scalability, and strategic advantage became apparent, so they sought a partner to do it all. Enter SoConnect.

The Strategy

Custom Cybersecurity Framework: We conducted a detailed assessment of Sunamp's existing cybersecurity measures, implemented Cyber Essentials Plus, and tailored a robust security strategy to meet the renewable energy industry's unique challenges.

Empowering through Education: A vital part of the strategy was giving Sunamp the tools to build a security-conscious culture. We implemented the uSecure platform to provide continuous security awareness training to employees.

Expert-Led Security Enhancements: We introduced advanced security technologies, including Privileged Access Management, Password Management, and a Security Operation Center solution, significantly elevating Sunamp's ability to detect and respond to cyber threats.

Proactive Defence Measures: We provided real-time threat intelligence and incident response capabilities through Managed Endpoint Detection and Response and DNS Filtering, ensuring rapid risk mitigation.

With automated, personalised training programmes delivered to each team member and phishing simulations to test the team, Sunamp could build a security-conscious culture, avoiding the cause of 73% of all data breaches!

The Results

This strategic partnership transformed Sunamp’s cybersecurity approach, markedly enhancing its resilience against cyber-attacks. The Sunamp team can continue its commitment to sustainability and innovation, safe in knowing it is protected from 99.3% of common cyber threats. With a team of security experts monitoring 24/7, protection against zero-day and advanced threats is significantly enhanced.

In March 2024, Sunamp made the shortlist for a prestigious Cyber Resilience award. This achievement signifies its outstanding success in securing its mission-critical operations and confidently leading the way in sustainable energy.

With the team working and collaborating like never before and troubling IT issues a thing of the past, Sunamp can confidently move forward, knowing their business is so seamless, so efficient, and so secure.
