Industry-specific Solutions >> Professional services firm

Information management is often at the heart of a professional service firm's mission. Keeping track of clients, projects, and valuable intellectual property requires systems that minimize downtime and maximize productivity. Joho Technology consults closely with clients to create a level of security, reliability, and performance that lets professionals get on with their work.

Client case study:
Recruitment Firm

Client needs: The company expanded internationally to establish branch offices in Europe and the US. They required standardization of their systems to drive down costs and enhance system performance.

Solution: Handling remote connections to the corporate global network required a focus on security and open (Internet-based) standards. Joho Technology consultants recommmended an IP-VPN solution using Cisco hardware, with IP Security protocol and 168-bit (3DES) encryption. Virtual Private Dial-Up Network (VPDN) functionality was also added to allow freelance staff access to the company's network from remote locations.

Results: Overhead costs were reduced by 23% due to lower communication charges and increased ease of managing the new network. Valuable data was protected with the most up-to-date encryption methods, authentication, and data integrity for secure tunneling across the Internet. Flexibility and scalability were built in, so the firm could easily grow its network as necessary.
