Say goodbye to tape backup with Solar Winds, recommended by SCS

At SCS we are constantly looking at new and innovative ways to make sure your IT infrastructure runs as securely and efficiently as possible. Over the past year we have recommended our new WatchGuard “Managed Security Services Provider” (MSSP) program to the majority of our customers with great uptake and feedback. Many of our customers have also changed their current anti-virus protection to ESET anti-virus. Why? Because not only are these services superior therefore giving better protection, but because our customers trust us when we make these recommendations.

The most recent of these innovations is our Solar Winds Cloud backup offering. This product can protect your Servers, Workstations and Office 365 without the need to change tapes, hard drives or even be onsite. We already have over 25 customers protected by this technology including ourselves.
