Our aim is to help enterprises in the seamless migration of their workloads to a cloud infrastructure
Document management is a vital aspect of this client’s business, and the organization wanted to utilize a cloud infrastructure to preserve critical information. However, data security was a concern that plagued the firm and pondered how these documents can be effectively shielded from vulnerabilities. Canalini Consulting Group employed security tokens to encapsulate their clients’ critical information from threats and provide restricted access to users. The cloud solution provider also adopted the Microsoft Red Forest architecture to insulate users with privileged identities from the production environment, thus providing an additional security service.
The recent past has been quite fruitful for Canalini Consulting Group and the company’s recognition as a Microsoft Gold Partner has helped it garner significant visibility and resulted in the addition of quite a few reputed names to the company’s clientele. Team Canalini upgrades the solutions deployed to clients periodically to ensure they are relevant and ahead of the competition. The company firmly believes that agility and transparency are quintessential in building great customer relationships and the company’s team of highly-qualified engineers can be easily reached for assistance post-deployment. “We look forward to the better empowerment of our clients’ security by effective utilization of Microsoft’s Active Directory Federation Services (ADFS) in the near future.
