Business Challenge 

Company had a legacy on premise VM Server hosting mission critical application. The server was experiencing increased capacity issues, operating errors, and backups were failing. Server failure was at risk which would lead to no accessibility to critical applications, thus no productivity.

How we helped

Akins IT migrated the server to Azure, utilizing IAS services and incorporate Azure Backup to ensure long term stability and scalability.  We provided secure connectivity by deploying FortiGate VM Appliance. Configured UTM features – AV, Web Filtering, Application Filtering, IPS, Botnet C&C Protection and SSL-VPN tunnel for FortiClient connectivity.


An Azure Infrastructure was successfully set up to support the mission critical business applications. Providing a much more efficient and reliable user experience.​​​​​​​
