Microsoft now pushes a monthly cumulative roll-up patch, which while necessary - can be problematic. So to resolve any issues and mitigate risk, we perform delayed, scheduled patch installation during off-hours using only tested white-listed Microsoft patches. Just one of many proactive services we include in our server management options.

Finally we have skilled technicians that work on your servers around the clock at all times of the night and day to keep it working at its best - and because of our scale, we can keep prices reasonable. We manage the following server OS types...

The final type and extent of a backup solution depends on factors like how long you can wait before restoring the data, the cost of downtime and more. We provide useful research and tools to help you make good decisions. Of course, our backup solutions include any or all combinations of the following...

Security Solutions


Its a new day when it comes to computer and network security and anyone who ignores this topic will eventually pay a stiff price. Todays security threats are smarter, more dangerous, and mutate quickly. The consequences of a data breach can include lost credit card and bank information, lost passwords, stolen customer data, expensive compliance violations, identity theft and more.

A more recent and devastating threat encrypts your data immediately using tools and technology stolen from our own NSA and Microsoft. The perpetrators hold your data for ransom and if you do not have a good versioned backup, you may be at their mercy.

Our security solutions are comprehensive and include business-class components and company training. Our programs start with the following...

  • Enterprise-class security solutions with forensics, remediation, and reports
  • Network and server business-class firewalls
  • Software and live Monitoring
