Located in Derbyshire and owned by the Wescom Group, Wescom Defence is a world-leading pyrotechnic defence manufacturer, with an extensive military grade product range covering illumination, signaling, search and rescue, screening, training, security and high energy products.
Wescom Defence’s journey with Digital Space began in early January 2020 when the IT Team in the Derby business began planning for the divestiture of the business from the former Group entity, Chemring Group, into PE funded private ownership, PWD Group. Wescom needed to plan to totally disentangle and sever all IT ties back to the group and set up a true standalone IT environment.
Digital Space was contracted to migrate their domain AD infrastructure, build a new online environment, deploy world-class perimeter and device security, provide an off-site data backup solution and deliver resilient internet connectivity into the Derbyshire site.
Wescom Defence now has a complete resilient internet solution in place, which will allow the business to scale up and evolve for years to come as they continue their journey further into the Cloud. They are also benefitting from greater agility, security and productivity, leveraging the full Microsoft Azure and Office365 stack into their infrastructure and have firm plans for additional cloud migrations in the future.
