As a new network manager to Fred Perry, I asked activereach to assist in our firewall migration work. They did a fantastic job of taking a previously outsourced service with no documentation and significantly improving security, working diligently and late into the evenings. At all times they kept me in the loop so that I could manage the system afterwards.
