Project Overview

Tombe Herrington is a full-service accounting firm with 2 locations across BC. They were looking for a trusted partner to help them seamlessly modernize their infrastructure and migrate to Microsoft 365 and provide ongoing IT support

  • Move to Microsoft 365
  • Increase Collaboration
  • Lay foundation for future projects and IT management
  • Hybrid Server solution

The Problem

Tombe Herrington was looking for a on-premise email migration that included a tenant move and infrastructure upgrade. With no IT department, they knew that they needed help to help get deployed.

Secure Shield was chosen because of their status as a strategic Microsoft partner and their long history successfully implementing exchange migrations.


The Solution

Secure Shield is a long-established leader in deploying, migrating and supporting Microsoft Messaging Platforms. The solution for Tombe Herrington was easy – to hybridize and then migrate their organization to the cloud.

Secure Shield set up the environment and made sure the hybridization process was in place. Finally, Secure IT worked closely with the partners to build a plan that created the least amount of downtime. Training was also completed on the configuration of Microsoft 365, and changes made to both the Microsoft 365 tenant as a whole and Exchange specifically to drive effortless collaboration.
