Ajinomoto OmniChem is a leading global business partner for Pharmaceutical APIs and Intermediates, Amino Acids, Agrochemicals, and Botanical Extractions.

The challenge

Looking for external expertise

CIO Björn is convinced that as a non-IT company you should not have the ambition to build up the cybersecurity and networking part in-house. This requires very specific knowledge that you must continuously stay informed of. Ajinomoto OmniChem does not have the necessary resources to achieve this, and was therefore looking for a partner who could help them with the continuous improvement of their cybersecurity and networking.

Why spotit

How a network can make a difference

Ajinomoto OmniChem got to know spotit through an ex-employee who currently works at spotit and spoke very highly of the company, the available knowledge and expertise, and the quality of the services.

Spotit is located close to our offices, which is a plus in case of security or network problems.

The solution

From a project to a real partnership

It all started with a few stand-alone projects we, such as carrying out a security audit and providing advice on SD-WAN. The collaboration gradually grew into a real partnership in the field of IT security and networking, with Ajinomoto OmniChem being onboarded in spotit’s 24/7 SOC monitoring.

The results

Focus on the long term

We have been working together for more than 4 years now, with a strong focus on the long term. Ajinomoto OmniChem views spotit as an extension of their own IT team, and not as a provider of services.
