  • Microsoft 365
  • Cyber Essentials Plus


Technicus is a relatively new SME with talented people working on data transformation and data management projects. They planned to grow so needed a flexible setup to scale quickly with both staff and contractors. They handle a large amount of confidential and personal data so they must be able to demonstrate their commitment to – and best practice in – security – and comply with relevant regulations.

“We work with all kinds of data and so are acutely aware of the need to protect it at all times from cyber-crime risk and to comply with relevant regulations. We worked closely with Pro Drive to implement all the required solutions to gain Cyber Essentials Plus certification and to have a secure system at Technicus.”

Pro Drive set up a secure Microsoft 365 environment and onboarded the Technicus team. Microsoft 365 brings together premium Office apps like Word, Excel, SharePoint and PowerPoint with cloud storage.

The environment included:

  • email with best-in-class Mimecast email security.
  • conditional access policies to secure devices accessing company data.
  • SharePoint for storing company files and collaboration.
  • an entire solution built to Cyber Essentials standards with a certificate issued on completion. Cyber Essentials Plus is a government backed and industry-supported scheme that helps the business protect itself against the growing threat of cyber-attacks. Technicus had to be externally audited and technically assessed using security software. In order to gain Cyber Essentials Plus it had to have Cyber Essentials already.


With Microsoft 365 cloud services, Technicus can now scale the company quickly and bring on board new staff whilst maintaining security of their system.

Having Cyber Essentials Plus certification enables them to prove their security credentials to stakeholders as they grow.

Pro Drive now provides ongoing IT management, cyber security and planning services to Technicus in the UK and to their new offices in Poland. We are working with Technicus on attaining the IASME Cyber Assurance standard (formerly the IASME Governance Standard).

“Pro Drive helped us choose a cloud solution that has provided us with scalability for growing the company and meeting our project demands. The Pro Drive team provide excellent support across our offices allowing us to collaborate and work seamlessly from any location.”
