In 2019 Microsoft selected GCIT to profile some of our cloud security deployments. One of these was DJ Stringer Real Estate, a 30 strong team of Real Estate professionals located in Coolangatta, QLD.
Microsoft work with tens of thousands of partners across the world. For a partner to be selected to have their client success stories profiled on a global platform is both prestigious and humbling. GCIT deploy Microsoft cloud solutions to global best practice. To be recognised by Microsoft helps to galvanise our position as a leading Managed Services Provider.

- Part of the move to Microsoft 365, DJ Stringer deployed new workstations running Windows 10 Professional.
- DJ Stringer further enhanced the security of its devices with Multi-Factor Authentication, Windows Hello, and Windows Information Protection (WIP).
- DJ Stringer has also increased the security of its apps in the cloud, across Office 365, their line of business applications and third-party apps like Dropbox.
Discussing the deployment, Tammy Stringer, Office Manager for DJ Stringer Real Estate noted:
“We wanted to increase our security in order to prevent the sort of events we’d seen elsewhere, and we have those advanced capabilities with Microsoft 365.”
On enhancing security while simplifying operations:
“That’s the beauty of Microsoft 365. We’ve added numerous security layers and prevented the sort of issues we’d seen impact our competitors, while simultaneously simplifying and unifying our own operations.”
And on data protection:
“Thanks to BitLocker, if a would-be data thief got their hands on the hard drive from one of our new workstations, all they would find is encrypted, illegible files. To gain access, they’d need current, employee-specific login information too—all of which we can quickly change remotely.”
