Brooks Macdonald has mandated Rackspace Technology to manage and optimise its IT architecture for improved security and compliance. The company now uses Rackspace Managed Cloud, a private cloud offering from Rackspace Technology.
Brooks Macdonald Group plc, through its various subsidiaries, provides investment management services in the UK and internationally. The group has 12 offices across the UK and the Channel Islands.
The migration project has streamlined operations by reducing Brooks Macdonald’s number of technology partners and providers and further streamlined the firm’s IT services by taking charge of its Microsoft Office 365 licensing. Brooks Macdonald has also engaged Rackspace Managed Security Services to enhance its security and compliance.
For increased protection against advanced persistent threats, Brooks Macdonald now leverages Rackspace Technology’s Proactive Detection and Response services. The new security solution, paired with its private cloud architecture, offers a single pane view, supporting a more holistic approach for monitoring activity and assessing threats.
Tim Lovejoy, VP Government and Private Cloud, EMEA at Rackspace Technology said: “Brooks Macdonald’s existing infrastructure had grown rapidly and as a result needed streamlining. It was important for us to design a solution that supports future scalability and elasticity, while maintaining high levels of security and compliance, and we are excited to work together on the next stages of Brooks Macdonald’s cloud journey.”
Caroline Abbondanza, Group CTO at Brooks Macdonald, adds: “Having a partner like Rackspace Technology gives us the assurance that we have visibility of any online threats that might come our way. In Rackspace Technology, we’ve found a trusted partner to support us on our technology journey.”
In the future, Brooks Macdonald plans to explore further services with Rackspace Technology, including the potential addition of public cloud to enable the company to operate in a multicloud environment.
