S5 Technology Group are proud to have been named as finalists in the Trusted Systems category of the 2023 CRN Impact Awards. The Trusted Systems category showcases projects that improve resilience through efforts to protect customer assets and data, their transactions, enhance security, ensure business continuity or boost organisations’ ability to recover from a disaster.
S5 were the lead technology partner in the consolidation of three separate municipal councils and a water authority, that were merged to form MidCoast Council. MidCoast were the first Australian customer to enter into the Check Point Infinity Total Protection Agreement which gave MidCoast significant cost savings and the ability to pivot their requirements throughout the deployment.
Guy Coble, Principal Architect at S5, said “We’re proud to be named a finalist in the 2023 CRN Impact Awards, Trusted Systems category. On the MidCoast project, S5 were able to leverage our partnership with Check Point and Cisco to deliver a truly Enterprise-grade solution through the Check Point Infinity Total Protection Agreement and the use of Cisco’s DNA Center and Identity Services Engine. This allowed the council to strengthen their security posture significantly while realising substantial reductions in operational costs.”
