In Duncan-Williams’ industry, data security is paramount. ProTech’s layered approach to security, from the tools offered to the tenacity with which they monitor systems, perfectly fit Jon’s needs. The team doesn’t have to worry about the efficacy of one lone tool when it comes to protecting their data. ProTech has stacked tools to create a security safety net, ensuring there are always multiple fail safes in place that keep data secure. This unique approach immediately alleviated Jon’s worries.
“Not only does ProTech protect our employees, they teach them to identify threats. My team is now so trained that they start to question legitimate emails and information I send to them.”

The infrastructure is built on highly scalable industry-leading VMware and flash storage. This gives the clients the flexibility to have a fixed operating cost but still have the ability to allocate and adjust resources to their infrastructure on demand
