Lighting the Way: Ansell Lighting partners with Leaf IT for Global Cyber Security.

Ansell Lighting, established in 1992, is a global leader in innovative lighting solutions. With bases in Warrington and Belfast, and showrooms in Belfast, Warrington, Madrid, and Dublin, Ansell serve customers in over 26 countries. Renowned for their energy-efficient luminaires and Octo SMART lighting control system, Ansell Lighting continually set new standards in lighting design, earning multiple awards along the way.

Challenges.

Ansell Lighting faced a significant cybersecurity challenge due to its large global workforce operating across different time zones. With employees accessing company systems from various locations, often outside standard UK business hours, it became evident that traditional antivirus solutions were insufficient. These reactive tools only responded to known threats within their databases, leaving Ansell vulnerable to evolving cyberattacks. Recognising the need for a more robust solution, Ansell sought industry-leading endpoint protection backed by 24/7 monitoring to ensure proactive defence against cyber threats.

The Solution.

Identifying the need for a strong cybersecurity upgrade, Ansell Lighting partnered with Leaf IT, their trusted IT Advisor. Leveraging Leaf’s expertise and their existing award winning partnership with ConnectWise, Leaf proposed the implementation of ConnectWise Fortify MDR (Managed Detection and Response). This advanced solution offered proactive endpoint protection backed by continuous monitoring by ConnectWise’s Security Operations Centre (SOC). With a team of over 200 cybersecurity experts working 24/7, 365 days a year, Fortify MDR ensured real-time threat detection and remediation.

The Results.

Following the deployment of Fortify MDR across their entire network infrastructure, Ansell Lighting experienced a significant enhancement in cybersecurity posture. The proactive monitoring and correction capabilities of Fortify MDR provided peace of mind to Ansell’s management team, knowing that their endpoints were continuously protected against evolving threats. This newfound confidence alleviated the stress associated with cybersecurity concerns, allowing senior management to redirect their focus towards strategic business initiatives. As a result, productivity levels surged, enabling Ansell Lighting to further consolidate its position as a leader in the lighting solutions industry.
