  2. Keep you compliant with industry standards like HIPAA, GLBA, and EU GDPR.
  3. Continually monitor and update your systems to identify and stop any threats.  
  4. Outfit your M365 suite with our Security Essentials Pack.
  5. Provide cybersecurity training and testing to your employees.
  6. Give you the peace of mind that your business is safe & secure.

An MRI Practice’s Experience 

Our client, an MRI practice, came to us looking for help maintaining and securing their email. They had a hosted email provider, and it quickly became apparent that switching to Microsoft 365 would make it easier for them to get and stay secure and optimize their business operations. Because they are in the medical field, they were worried about maintaining the HIPAA security standards. They lacked trust in their hosted email provider and were constantly stressed about leaking a patient’s information and tarnishing their stellar reputation.  

The Frustration   

As an MRI practice, our clients were worried about maintaining the HIPAA security standards. They lacked trust in their hosted email provider and were constantly stressed about leaking a patient’s information and tarnishing their stellar reputation. They knew there were more secure email options out there but didn’t know enough to feel confident evaluating what they needed. 

The Fix 

We began by performing a complete systems security audit for the MRI practice to identify any security gaps or issues. In doing so, we recognized our client’s hosted email provider was not going to allow them to enact the security protocols they needed to be HIPAA compliant. Also, we removed any unnecessary applications and cleaned up their systems, implementing preventative measures to stop any possible malware downloads or virus infections in the future.  

We listened to our client’s needs and concluded that migrating them to Microsoft 365 would meet their security requirements and offer some added bonuses. We were able to outfit them with our M365 Security Essentials Pack- giving them the peace of mind they were looking for. We also plan to migrate their files into OneDrive, centralizing their information for improved efficiency and adding extra layers of security. With regard to our ongoing services, our client said, “Symmetric IT Group is always great to work with. They are pleasant, informative, and prompt whenever I need help. I couldn’t ask for any better.”
