Challenge:
Knight Federal Solutions was looking to move their infrastructure to the cloud, and their
existing IT provider was unable to support these needs. The organization needed a
managed IT services provider (MSP) that was organized, stable, experienced, and could
get them spun up in the cloud quickly by calling one contact. In addition, Kavaliro
managed Knight Federal Solutions corporate office move from technology project
management, IT logistics and implementation of 3rd party technology partners.

Solution Overview:
Knight Federal Solutions was looking for a dependable IT provider to manage their
technology, which they found in Kavaliro’s Managed IT Services. Kavaliro’s team made the
transition to the Kavaliro’s Managed IT Services Plan as seamless and painless as possible
by outlining a defined on-boarding process, communicating thoroughly, and composing a
clear and strategic plan for the organization to follow throughout the changeover.

Although it has not been long since Knight Federal Solutions engaged with Kavaliro’s
Managed IT Services Division, the partnership continues to flourish with Quarterly
Business Reviews at the cornerstone of the relationship’s success. These strategic
sessions allow Kavaliro Managed IT Services Division to continue
to align with their goals and ensure Knight Federal
Solutions technology grows with them.

Results:
In order to provide Knight Federal Solutions with a stable environment to run their business,
Kavaliro’s Managed IT Services Division provided a Cloud Hosting solution combined with
KORE Essentials IT Network Services. Kavaliro’s team replaced all of Knight Federal
Solutions existing networking hardware, customized each end user’s workstation, migrated
them to the Cloud, and provided Office 365 management.
With KORE Essentials Managed IT Network Services, Knight Federal Solutions gained
unlimited Service Desk support, 24x7x365 around-the-clock system monitoring,
subscriptions to Microsoft Office, protection from viruses and spyware, and strategic
technology planning sessions to ensure their business needs continue to align to the
Kavaliro Managed IT Services Division.

“As a rapidly growing business, there were many challenges we were facing with our IT
infrastructure. We were also preparing to move to a much larger office that would require
more hardware and a level of security that we have not had in the past and were in search
of an IT services provider we could trust that could meet our needs. The team at Kavaliro
Managed IT Services provided a one stop solution that could provide expert knowledge on
new equipment needed and how to properly secure our IT infrastructure. In addition, they
managed our entire IT transition to our corporate headquarters to include working with our
service providers, installing the proper fiber optics/cabling, and setting up the access
control at the appropriate security level we needed. This efficient, stress free management
of our IT needs has exceeded what our expectations were. The Kavaliro Managed IT
Services team has quickly become a part of the Knight Federal family and we could not be
more pleased to have a trusted partnership with their organization.”
