Case Study: Aegis Power Systems
“They have excellent employees at all levels that are energetic, professional and focused on getting the job done correctly. You don’t find that very often anymore. I feel that Novatech is there whenever I need them and they will work to find a solution”– Matt Vansteen Senior Design Engineer, Aegis Power Systems
Aegis was desperately in need of an upgrade to their computers and server. They were using computers with outdated operating systems and they badly needed an update. They also needed to migrate their legacy applications and software to the new systems.
In the past, Aegis had always taken care of their IT in-house. However, setting up a new server, firewall, and workstations proved to be too much to handle.
If that weren’t enough, Aegis also needed to handle a new cybersecurity compliance regulation that they were unfamiliar with (NIST 800-171). With over 100 different – and necessary – security controls to implement, Aegis decided that they needed some help with managing it all.
- Outdated IT infrastructure
- Lack of time to manage new changes
- Unfamiliar and complex cybersecurity compliance regulations
The Novatech team began their consultation by understanding the scope and problems that Aegis faced. They developed a detailed plan that covered every aspect that needed to be addressed. Once the plan was approved by Aegis, the Novatech team performed all the necessary upgrades over the weekend in just three days.
Novatech also helped Aegis establish a comprehensive backup strategy, while also conducting cybersecurity training for Aegis employees to maintain compliance.
Aegis now has a more efficient network than ever before. With fiber channel partitioning, the Novatech team was able to create ultra-fast internet speeds. Novatech updated the server operating system to Windows Server 2016, and all the workstations to Windows 10. The legacy applications were all ported over seamlessly and without issue.
Aegis is also safe from internet threats. They’re now compliant with the stringent cybersecurity requirement and their customers are happier than ever.
- Updated IT infrastructure
- Improved internet speeds
- Partitioned fiber channels
- Bolstered security systems
The Client Experience
Aegis couldn’t be happier with the work that Novatech completed. They’re now up and running efficiently, and have been operating with minimal issues since the upgrade happened. Novatech continues to handle the few remaining help desk tickets quickly, without slowing down operations.
