Case study overview

In the face of escalating cybersecurity threats, businesses are compelled to fortify their defences with advanced technologies and expert guidance. Logicalis, a trusted global Microsoft Azure Expert and Microsoft Intelligent Security Association (MISA) partner, has been instrumental in leading organisations through these unprecedented times. 

Leveraging their extensive Microsoft partnership and advanced Managed Extended Detection and Response (MXDR) capabilities, Logicalis has successfully transformed the security infrastructure of one of the world's leading lifestyle brands for gamers. By deploying a comprehensive security modernisation solution, Logicalis enabled the customer to enhance security efficiency, reduce operational costs, and bolster their resilience against cyber threats.
