When the private equity firm’s IT director left the firm after nearly a decade, it depleted the firm’s technical staff to just one junior level IT resource. Although the firm had already moved its core systems from physical servers to a cloud-based infrastructure, maintaining this environment was an ongoing challenge. Additionally, the firm’s remaining IT staff struggled to keep up with help desk support and project requests.
To supplement its limited in-house knowledge and experience, the firm turned to the third-party experts at Dynamic Network
Advisors to connect the investment firm with the technical resources and support required to keep the business running.
Dynamic brought in specialized third-party vendors like Thrive to take on the day-to-day oversight and maintenance of the firm’s network.
Thrive deployed a co-managed IT solution for the firm that included Kaseya patch management software for servers and
workstations, cybersecurity monitoring, vulnerability scanning, managed Microsoft 365 capabilities, and managed Azure databases, along with end-user support.
Additionally, Thrive took charge of the firm’s international IT infrastructure by providing managed and monitored voice and data connectivity, while serving as the primary IT help desk for the firm’s employees around the globe.
Thrive manages the day-to-day oversight of the firm’s network and infrastructure. Meanwhile, Dynamic orchestrates biweekly calls with the firm and Thrive to facilitate clear, concise communications between the firm and the IT vendor — ensuring smooth project management and successful implementation.

infrastructure management resources. In addition to facilitating ongoing management and maintenance of the firm’s network
infrastructure and software functionality, the firm also connects the investment firm with other service providers and solutions to address specific IT needs.
