Based in Poole Dorset, Aish Technologies Ltd (Aish) is a systems design and manufacturing company that specialises in the protection of electronic equipment in harsh environments. The company has a history that extends back over 100 years and has an enviable pedigree in the supply of rugged technology across the world.
In order to secure and work on government contracts it was essential that Aish gained Cyber Essentials Plus. To gain this level of accreditation, a full review of the network security and associated policies had to be conducted. Enhanced have worked on many projects with Aish over the last few years and have formed a relationship, resulting in trust in the advice and expertise offered. This made it a clear decision for Aish to select Enhanced to help them achieve this accreditation.
With the need to gain Cyber Essentials Plus, Enhanced undertook a network review and gap analysis to identify the areas that needed to be improved. Enhanced then completed a programme of changes, to add extra layers of security and advise on any policy changes that were required. To gain Cyber Essentials Plus accreditation, Aish needed to be independently audited. Enhanced were on site with the external auditors to support the Aish I.T team and offer guidance, to ensure accreditation was achieved.
The results and benefits
Aish Technologies are now Cyber Essentials Plus certified. This ensures they meet the standard of Cyber Security outlined by the Cyber Essentials government scheme. Furthermore, it demonstrates to potential suppliers and customers that Aish have taken steps to ensure they are well protected against common cyber threats.
