Keeping startups secure with Google Workspace

Cobry helped CodeBase ensure their IT environment is secure and optimised, and conducted Workspace training for both admins and end users, resulting in improved productivity, collaboration and security. 


CodeBase is the UK’s largest technology incubator, supporting innovation and helping startups build better businesses.

Providing space, community and education programmes, CodeBase makes it easier for new businesses to start and scale their operations.

The Problem 

When we first started working with CodeBase, they were going through a period of rapid growth, tripling the size of their workforce in less than a year. With the expansion, they wanted to make sure that their Workspace environment was secure and optimised for all the new joiners.

A few months later, Debbie, CodoBase’s new IT manager, joined the company. Coming from a Microsoft background, Debbie needed a full introduction to Google Workspace and comprehensive admin training to effectively manage the platform.

The Solution 

Improving Security

CodeBase decided to partner with Cobry to enhance their Google Workspace security. To strengthen their protection, Cobry recommended upgrading to Enterprise Plus, in order to gain access to more advanced security features. We worked closely with the CodeBase team to optimise their Google Workspace setup, introduce the new functionalities of the platform and help them implement data loss prevention rules.

A comprehensive security review was conducted, examining in depth CodeBase’s Workspace set up, providing recommendations on what should be improved, and implementing the changes as agreed.

Admin Training

We conducted tailored end-to-end admin training, focused on the IT manager's specific needs, including security, licensing, access management, and overall IT administration within Google Workspace.

“The Google admin training was tailored to exactly what
I needed to learn and I was able to guide it myself.”
Debbie Baird - IT Manager

End user training

With a diverse staff base of over 60 employees, varying skill levels with Google Workspace were evident. To address this, Cobry provided a flexible, tailored approach.

We hosted a series of interactive training sessions, allowing the end users to pinpoint their struggles and pain points, so we can address and resolve them.


Working with Cobry has been like always having a trusted partner to hold our hand. The reassurance that I can reach out any time I need help and that I will always get a response that is fast and helpful. Nothing is ever an issue. Cobry always finds a way to fit around our needs as a business”
Debbie Baird, IT Manager at CodeBase

The Result

127 happy Google
Workspace users 

100% customer satisfaction

CodeBase staff is now confident and able to use the full range of Workspace tools and products. They are comfortable with sharing files both internally and externally without any security concerns.

Cobry’s comprehensive approach to training and security not only ensured a more secure and optimised Workspace environment, but also improved productivity and collaboration across the organisation.

The collaboration with Cobry enabled CodeBase's successful adoption of Google Workspace, even in the face of rapid growth.
