IT Challenge

Like many other companies, Nystrom was faced with quickly moving employees off-site and setting them up to work successfully from home. To ease the transition, Logically helped the company distribute and set up laptops. “I would say overall it was very seamless. We got people home and set up within a couple of weeks. It was quick and I was pretty impressed,” said Ms. Thomas. Logically managed Nystrom’s physical and cloud servers before the pandemic, enabling them to back up remotely. During the transition to working from home, the ability to connect to these servers became essential.

In February 2019, prior to transitioning their environment to Logically, Abracon suffered a cyber-attack that compromised the company’s email and back-up servers. Logically sprang into action and provided a complete infrastructure to support the ERP and the company’s transition to Microsoft’s cloud-based applications. “Logically provided the support we needed when our company was in crisis mode. None of Abracon’s sensitive employee or financial data was breached. A full forensics investigation was completed and Logically had the company up and running in a short time,” said Stepan.

In addition to assisting Abracon with this crisis, Logically has been instrumental in maintaining the company’s 20-server environment, the ERP system and continued migration to a cloud environment. Also, Logically recently supported Abracon’s first acquisition, a company complementing Abracon’s existing product offerings, and made the transition seamless from an IT perspective.
