ACK Asset Management
Case Study.

By migrating to Agio’s fully hosted public cloud solution,
ACK Asset Management increased productivity, decreased
overall cost, and reduced risk.

The challenge.

Located in the New York metropolitan area, ACK Asset Management is a small and mid-cap U.S. equity manager with just under 10 employees. The firm has been a client of Agio’s since 2014, and needed to upgrade server and network equipment that were coming up on end-of-life.

This upgrade serendipitously aligned with ACK’s recent cybersecurity corrective action plan to investigate an overall upgrade to their infrastructure. We were at a critical inflection point rooted in the intersection of IT and cybersecurity.

Our solution.

To meet ACK Asset Management’s various requirements, we chose to migrate the firm to our latest version of Agio SkySuite, a fully hosted public cloud solution leveraging Microsoft Azure. This holisitic solution gave ACK a brand-new next generation redundant network stack with a built-in intrusion detection system and advanced malware protection. Agio SkySuite also helped ACK streamline:

Server Cost

Removed the need for an on-premise server and relevant server management costs.

VPN

Removed the need for VPN to the office environment.

Backup Cost

Removed the cost of backups.

SkySuite added security layers:

  • Web Security
  • Phishing Protection
  • Enterprise Mobility Management
  • Email DLP
  • Email Encryption
  • Rights Management

The results.

Strengthened Infrastructure

Improved Cybersecurity Posture

Fully Hosted in the Public Cloud

Reduced Costs

Smooth WFH Migration

By implementing the latest version of Agio SkySuite, ACK Asset Management upgraded its network infrastructure, removed outdated servers and subsequent server management fees, and reduced backup costs.

With this more robust solution, the firm was well positioned to migrate employees to work-from-home as COVID-19 unfolded.

We had a seamless transition moving the staff to work from home, and I am so glad we made the change to Agio’s SkySuite solution. I 100% recommend this offering to any likeminded firm, and I am a big supporter of Agio’s model.
