Enhanced Security and Compliance for M365 Deployments.

The Requirements

Defined Wine are a rapidly growing wine producing business located in England. Increasing staff headcount and expanding facilities is testament to their success in the British winemaking industry. They adopted M365 to provide their staff with the IT services necessary to perform their day to day roles, but not having a dedicated IT team, with the focus on wine production, their IT estate was scaling organically without security oversight. Their M365 CSP simply provides the M365 platform as a service and does not provide vital security expertise, assessment, strategy, or professional services. That’s where Innovate comes in.

Innovate was engaged to provide a Security & Compliance assessment on the M365 platform, determine a security rating score, provide recommended configuration and policy changes, thus increasing the overall security and compliance score of M365.

The Result

Innovate performed the initial assessment and discovered the M365 platform had a security rating of 18%. After applying configuration and policy changes to the technology, and introducing best practice methods of working for people and process, Innovate increased Defined Wine M365 security rating to 98+%.

Rather than operating their business from an M365 “bucket”, Defined Wine is a business that can confidently rely on their IT systems to enable their staff to work more securely, for their data to be accessed by those who need to, and to continue scaling their business.
