BRISBANE 26 September 2017 - WARDY IT Solutions ( http://www.wardyit.com ) have been providing the Virtual DBA service to The Silver Chef Group, an ASX registered company, for 5 years, allowing the Silver Chef team to concentrate on more strategic operations.
The Silver Chef Group provide equipment funding solutions for the hospitality, transport and construction industries.
Vinnie D’Alessandro, Head of Technology at Silver Chef Group, said “We’ve got a fantastic relationship with the WARDY IT team and our operational team. It’s more of a partnership than it is a transactional relationship so we’ve got this very wonderful trust between our two businesses where I understand our business well and we trust the service they provide.”
The Silver Chef Group is a very data-driven organisation so having their databases and the infrastructure around it operating effectively is of high importance.
Leveraging WARDY IT’s Virtual DBA service has allowed The Silver Chef Group to scale up their capabilities in the administration area without putting on internal staff.
Vinnie D’Alessandro said “Being able to use WARDY IT’s experience and scale to support our business just made financial sense. The Virtual DBA service has really given us a lot of confidence to know that our databases are going to be available and performing at their optimum level. That provides us a capability to focus on our future state for the business and more strategic operations.”
Being an Australian grown organisation, The Silver Chef Group felt it was fantastic to be able to partner with WARDY IT, another Australian success story. “It’s fantastic for our relationship to have the same set of core values. It strengthens our partnership.”
WARDY IT Solutions takes care of The Silver Chef Group’s databases so they can take care of the rest and shift focus to other areas of importance in the company. The ability to outsource this service gives companies freedom to turn their attention elsewhere while things run smoothly in the background. The WARDY IT Solutions Virtual DBA service includes 24/7 support and monitoring, which means The Silver Chef Group can relax knowing their database needs are being met every step of the way.

Email fraud is nothing new, but online criminals have become ever more-effective at spoofing their identities to trick employees into sending them money. The Australian Centre for Cyber Security (ACSC) recorded losses of over $20M to business email compromise (BEC) attacks last year alone, up 230 percent over the previous year – and the full amount is certain to be much larger.

No matter how robust your security, or how diligent your employees, network credentials are a free pass for cybercriminals. This is mostly because employees are relied upon for their own password management. And with more than 4.8 billion sets of stolen credentials said to be available online, odds are that at least a few of your employees’ user IDs and passwords are just waiting to be used by unscrupulous outsiders. Are you ready to stop them?
