Flat-Fee IT Support and Management
The basis of our thinking on IT support lies both in our dedication to flat fees and the emphasis on avoiding any extra charges for day-to-day issues. At the start of work with each new client, a comprehensive evaluation is taken for their unique support needs, as well as what equipment and software is used. This allows us to assess how much the flat fee should be for each month. Not only does this allow businesses to take advantage of the services we offer, it also permits the possibility of coming up with a budget that is accurate and predictable.

Hardware Firewall Solutions
An Enterprise-Strength Firewall is one of the best protections against data theft, unauthorized intrusions to your network and effective first line of defense against the ravages of malware and viruses. Some of the convenient factors provided by a hardware firewall include being able to keep an eye on your network’s uptime, make sure your connection is running smoothly, throughput, loss of packets and much more. No sluggish workstations or annoying requests for access, and the surety your valuable data and network are being protected completely are all examples of why hardware-based firewalls are well worth the expense.
OneStepAhead is a content-filtering solution that allows complete control over which sites are accessible to your employees. The smart filtering program can immediately detect and block content you deem inappropriate, making the need to manually enter each web address a thing of the past. In addition, its footprint is extremely small, avoiding the problems of bogging down workstations like other filters are known to do.
24/7 Access to IT Experts

Software Licensing and Management
One factor that is vital to using the latest versions of any software legally is proper licensing. We here at Network Depot keep track of all software licenses, that they are being used properly and that the version being run is the latest available.
Remote Monitoring and Maintenance
At the beginning of each new contract, we install our monitoring program on every server and each workstation. If the program detects any problems, an alert will be sent to the NOC. The NOC then uses the included information in a ticket generated for one of our support staff.
Using our remote login feature we can gain access to any computer the software is installed on, perfect for allowing our experienced techs to see what is on the screen, while the issue is present. Seeing is only part of its capabilities, techs can also use it to root around in the operating system and fix bugs as they come across them. All in all, this allows us to destroy any major problems before they have a chance to cause havoc.
One of the best ways to eliminate possible threats and program errors is through the use of remote maintenance. Each and every day shows new threats, including malware, Trojan horses, and other nasty viruses. This makes keeping deterring programs, such as antivirus software, up to date of utmost importance. Our remote maintenance service allows us to perform this and any other maintenance that is necessary.
