M247 appointed to help Calico Group optimise IT operations

Lancashire-based social profit organisation, The Calico Group, has appointed connectivity and cloud services provider M247 to redesign its network, optimise operations and enhance security.

M247 worked with Calico’s ICT projects team to assess their current operations and requirements in order to build a network best suited to their needs, moving from a traditional MPLS network to SD-WAN. This enables Calico employees to access information directly from their cloud applications in a more timely and user-friendly way rather than via the corporate network, and also means security can be incorporated into the SD-WAN fabric via virtual firewalls, which is a far more effective approach when endpoints are accessing applications from multiple settings.

The project scope has now expanded to accommodate additional sites and demands, due to Calico’s constant growth across the region. This has seen a 30% increase in staff and a 25% increase of the number of offices over the last year.
