About ET Investments
ET Investment’s vision is to create a nationally recognized community of locally owned and operated Title agencies that have been developed and nurtured by ET Investments’ resources. Through our financial, marketing and operational strength, combined with local title agencies’ entrepreneurial spirit and knowledge, we seek to add value and broaden opportunity in the title industry, allowing each service provider to excel in their market approach and segment.
ET Investments was experiencing daily brute force attacks causing users to be locked out and the environment to be inaccessible. They needed secure and scalable remote desktop sessions for 600 + users. The deploy process leveraged a custom .NET-based deploy process taking over an hour to deploy a new server. Due to length of time to deploy they used schedule-based scale-up and down, instead of demand based.
Eplexity provided automated AMI build so we could leverage auto-scaling groups. Transit VPC deployment replaced LoadBalancer.org, with Microsoft Soft Connection Broker to provide Remote Desktop session aware load balancing. Provided a RD Gateway and NextGen Firewall solution to reduce user lockouts and provide an improved security solution.
