The project is about the implementation of Microsoft solutions at SUNLIGHT, a 100% subsidiary of the OLYMPIA Group. The project was started and completed in the context of the pandemic restrictive measures aimed at enabling company staff to work from home.
This involved the transfer of e-mails to the Microsoft 365 environment, while a number of Microsoft security products such as Multi-Factor Authentication (MFA), Conditional Access, Cloud App Security and Advanced Threat Protection were activated for data and device security.
This solution allows SUNLIGHT staff to exchange emails and access data securely, while at the same time the company’s IT department is able to quickly detect abnormal use and cyber threats.
Simultaneously, endpoints are managed through Microsoft Intune, which ensures complete control for every type of device (iOS, Android, Windows, etc.) and a more productive working environment. Moreover, the Windows Autopilot service, which was also activated, provides setup and pre-configuration services for new devices to the cloud directly by users.
Dionissis Malliaris, CIO at SYSTEMS SUNLIGHT S.A., stated, “The new situation which was brought about by the coronavirus-related restrictive measures in the enterprises’ operations, urged us to take immediate decisions and to move forward with urgent implementation of IT projects, which would allow the continuity of the enterprise’s operations. That said, the BEWISE team’s quick responses, as well as their proposals regarding the implementation of the project, allowed us to transfer the critical part of our operation to the cloud, so we are now able to serve our customers as if it nothing has changed.”
