Murphy O’Rawe – Thinking of a Secure Future with Cyber Security from Xperience
“We chose Xperience because they have extensive expertise across cyber security, cloud and managed IT. What made them particularly attractive to us was their level of professionalism and integrity. They always bring the latest industry thinking with a ‘can do’ attitude. Most importantly, they have a wealth of experience working with the legal sector, so were able to bring that wisdom to bear when dealing with us.”
Murphy O’Rawe is a highly respected firm of solicitors with a proven track-record in providing solicitor-led, tailored defence and legal advice within the insurance market locally, nationally and internationally.
Murphy O’Rawe solicitors holds highly sensitive information on behalf of their clients and although they are ISO27001 certified, they understand that cyber threats are becoming ever more sophisticated. The firm therefore wanted to take a proactive approach to ensure that every precaution was in place to protect client information from potential cyber security threats.
With the additional pressures of adopting hybrid working during the pandemic, they wanted to make sure that they had the appropriate cyber security measures in place to protect their data whilst people worked remotely. Joanne Logan, IT Manager, Murphy O’Rawe said, “We take data security very seriously and realised that a simple VPN connection is no longer enough and that we needed to add additional layers of protection to enable secure remote working and give our clients and our staff the reassurance of having the best cyber protections in place. A cyber breach in our industry would do significant damage to our reputation.
We required a solution that would meet our needs today and in the future. Our clients want the reassurance that when we are working on their behalf that we have all the security measures in place and that we continue to evolve the measures that we take to secure their data in the ever-changing cyber security threat landscape”.
The Search for a Solution
Joanne continued, “We have a great relationship with Xperience, our ICT partner which is very proactive. Xperience is a trusted advisor to us. They have a lot of experience in cyber security and have always kept us up to date with the latest thinking and measures that we needed to consider in order to stay safe whilst working online and remotely. They worked with us to create a solution based on our unique requirements and in alignment with our business goals”.
Xperience provided Murphy O’Rawe with Security as a Service which protects their systems, network and data. The solution routes Murphy O’Rawe’s internet traffic through advanced security systems located in the cloud to provide real-time protection and mitigation from malicious data, cyber attacks, exploitation, network intrusion, malware, viruses and much more.
Joanne continued, ‘Security as a Service from Xperience has given us complete peace of mind. We know that we are working with industry experts who provide the latest thinking and advice. With this solution, we know that we have built resilience from the inside out so we can defend our business from both the known and unknown.
The implementation was also incredibly smooth. The disruption to our business was negligible. There was no impact on the day to day running of the business as it all took place remotely behind the scenes. We were up and running in a matter of days”.
Joanne said, “We chose Xperience because they have extensive expertise across cyber security, cloud and managed IT. What made them particularly attractive to us was their level of professionalism and integrity. They always bring the latest industry thinking with a ‘can do’ attitude. Most importantly, they have a wealth of experience working with the legal sector, so were able to bring that wisdom to bear when dealing with us.
Ultimately, this solution gave us peace of mind, from a partner that understands our sector. Cyber security is no longer a ‘nice to have’, it is a ‘must have’ and will be pivotal in helping us secure business going forward. When we are in front of our clients, we are now asked what data protection measures we have in place as this becomes a growing concern for businesses and individuals globally”.
