“Having expanded significantly over the past few years, we were taking a strategic look at IT and the role it plays in our company. With this in mind, we were conscious that security and cybersecurity would be to the fore of any future investment. We asked Stryve to do a vulnerability assessment that in turn would feed into our long-term strategic IT plan. The result was a comprehensive report that was easy to digest and act upon.”
