Technology should be a tool that enables you to focus on running your business more efficiently, securely and with peace-of-mind.

After supporting local clients for more than 25 years, we understand that this proposition (that IT should simplify your life) can be easier said than done. This is why we provide straight-forward consulting services to help you understand your options to address some of today’s biggest challenges. During these engagements, we will be your virtual CIO and advisor.

Here is an overview of some of the areas where we can provide strategic guidance:

  • Cloud Services:
    Everyone has heard of “the cloud” but how do you know if moving some or all of your applications to the cloud makes sense for you?  We will take an objective look and help you decide where cloud based services may be a good fit.
  • Business Continuity and Disaster Recovery:
    Most businesses have backups of some kind, but many do not really understand the length of time it will take to recover from a server crash. If you don’t know how much down-time you are likely to face, how can you understand the impact on your business?
  • Security Assessments:
    The world we live in is full of risk and the reality is that the people out there trying to do malicious things with your network and data have become more sophisticated that many of the tools in place to catch them. Our security assessment is designed to identify any vulnerabilities that currently exist in your environment.
  • Systems Assessments:
    Outdated systems are a security liability. A simple assessment can quantify your exposure and form the basis for a refresh plan.
  • Industry compliance requirements:
    • Secure email and email archiving
      We work with many industries that require email be sent securely and / or archived to meet compliance requirements.
    • HIPAA
      The requirements in order to be in compliance with HIPAA and the HITECH Act are far reaching and not necessarily written in a way to provide concrete guidance. If you are struggling to understand what these requirements mean for your medical practice, we can help.
