Beyond IT: SNS Technologies is your first, last and best line of protection for any and all IT emergencies.

It’s 3 in the morning; do you know where your files are?

They’re currently locked away in a server with a problem – hackers have made their way in through an unsecured port and are in the process of making your data their data. By the time you even know it’s a problem, you’ve already received the email with instructions for meeting the hackers’ ransom demands.

Or perhaps less scary, your files are simply on a hard drive that has gone dark, crippled by a hardware error. Now the data you depend on to do your job is lost forever, since backing up your data always hovered somewhere in the middle of a long to-do list.

Now let’s try the least scary option of all: It’s 3 in the morning and you’re protected by SNS Technologies. Do you know where your files are?

The answer is, right where their supposed to be, protected by SNS Technologies state-of-the-art suite of hardware, software and cloud solutions.

“These days, we’re able to be much more proactive, rather than reactive,” said SNS Technologies Founder Michael Ray. “We can see when something could be a catastrophic failure and fix it before it crashes.”

The preemptive strike against outages and data loss is possible thanks to SNS Technologies powerful managed services, which run as a single app on every computer and device on your network, monitoring everything and alerting SNS staff in real time. “Our guys are on-call 24/7,” said Ray.

“We recently had one client experience a total system crash,” said Ray. “Alex (Gonzalez, Network Engineer) was able to remote in and they were working without data loss within the hour.” Part of that involved some very complicated geekery that involved cloud computing and virtual backups of the whole server that took a 3-4 day disaster and turned it into a brief hiccup. To those of us whose tech savvy extends to rebooting the phone when it starts glitching, it’s essentially wizardry. To SNS Technologies, it’s another day at the office.

Coupled with that up-to-the-second monitoring is a comprehensive suite of protective measures including firewalls to thwart any and all attempts to hack into your network.
“If you’re going to be a client of ours, you have to have a firewall because at the end of the day, we’re responsible for your network,” said Ray. “If one of our clients has someone trying to hack into their firewall, we can see where it’s coming from, see what we can do to stop it and report the IP address to the FBI.”

It’s a bleeding-edge set of technologies that ultimately serves that most elusive goal set forth by every computer company since the dawn of time: it does what it’s supposed to. It keeps your network safe and running smoothly and lets you focus on your business.
