Cyber security is not a one solution fix. You need multiple layers to create a Defence in Depth strategy to mitigate and reduce the risk across several areas of your businss.

It only takes one user clicking on one link while suffering a bad day for a business to be put at risk. As Cyber Security professionals we have to monitor and protect every user, on every device, using any service at all times in order to protect your business.

Information Protection

Hackers are after your data, usually to sell or to hold ransom for a sizable sum of money but losing data through accident can also be detrimental to a companies reputation.

cyber security
multi factor authentication

One of the easiest ways to protect your systems and their data is through multi factor authentication. This makes it harder for bad actors to gain access to systems and users are familiar making it easy to roll out.

cyber security
awareness training

The greatest ROI for cyber security comes from Awareness Training. By educating end users about attack vectors and what they should do, you can significantly reduce cyber incidents and their repercusions.

Dark web scanning

Knowing your credentials have been compromised is half the battle. By scanning the dark web for your details youcan ensure your password protection policy is being followed and passwords are changed once notified.

What is the most common question a DBA hears?

"Is the database running slow?". Without a DBA you might never know for sure with a DBA, problem solved

Digital Samurai Case studies

Data, SQL, and Database Solution Case Studies


SQL Server Sprawl leading to high SQL Server License Costs

Our client had a business that was growing organically and through acquisitions of smaller businesses.

The growth over the years had become large and scattered.The landscape covered various versions of the same software; SQL Server versions 7 to 2012. These versions were all old at the time and a few were well out of support with the vendor (Microsoft) leaving their business at risk from running on unsupported as well as unpatched software vulnerabilities.

Migrating financial data to a new accounting system

Finance has to be to the penny and we would not have it any other way. We were tasked with migrating financial data of a £70 million turnover company's accounts into a much larger billion turnover business due to a recent acquisition.

It needed to be completed accurately and quickly to coincide with group reporting dates. The migration was between two accounting packages - the source was Sage 200 and the destination was OpenAccounts. They needed an expert data management company with experience and a solid data migration methodology to accurately complete the migration.

SQL Processes overrunning process window

Process run times had started to increase and this inevitably happens with increased data loads over time. Spreading out the job start times had worked in the past but this was no longer possible due to the increased processing time needed to execute the jobs.

Something else needed to give and there were only two options - increase the specifications of the server at increased cost or optimise and re-write the code. Digital Samurai worked with the client to remedy their problem by optimising their code, saving the client's time and money.

SQL Server estate required patching

Getting stuck on an old version of SQL leaves you at risk to potential security vulnerabilities. The longer you leave it, the harder it can be to finally make that move to the current version. Patching SQL can be stressful if you do not have an adequate roll back plan and the skills to implement it.

As a result, the update gets pushed back further and further until there are so many updates to apply you fear doing it at all. Luckily, Digital Samurai can help by run updates, migrate data to new versions of SQL and ensure that your SQL Server is running perfectly.
