CASE STUDY

Road Warriors

Guardian Computer’s oldest client from 1996 based in Chicago, IL was an early champion of a distributed workforce. This client provides consulting services for large capital organizations and requires a best-in-class IT infrastructure in terms of performance and security.  

GC set up an infrastructure for remote workers well before that became a economic trend and has since provided ongoing continuous improvement to ensure that all systems are healthy and secure for remote workers.  

  • We created application controls that mirrored the organization’s policies and procedures for remote workers.  
  • Set up systems to assist with remote firewalls and folks being secure and compliant in remote situations and being able to access data remotely.
  • Provided them with Extended Detection and Remediation (XDR) solution to help provide holistic, scalable, and autonomous protection to their entire perimeter of their network.  

“John and Jean Prejean and their company Guardian Computer have worked with my firm MorrisAnderson for over 20 years. We are based in Chicago and found the Prejeans during a lengthy consulting project in New Orleans that evolved into John and Jean not only providing full service IT services to my firm and our traveling consulting team but also to various clients of my firm on an as needed basis. We work exclusively with Guardian on all IT issues. John, Jean and the Guardian team provide excellent service on a 24/7 basis and are always there when IT issues and problems arise. They are very practical and look at IT expenditures through the cost/benefit lens of a business owner. They proactively advise me of issues and fix problems fast. They will also tell me when my novice IT viewpoint is simply outdated and wrong. I like that. In today’s world of the cloud and the internet, your IT provider no longer needs to be local but your IT provider must be accessible and responsive when you have a problem. John, Jean and Guardian provide that level of service and more!”
