Aronetics joined a local chapter of BNI to participate in their Givers Gain philosophy. (We have networked extensively via word of mouth since May 2009.) What we experienced at visiting multiple BNI chapters in Northeast Ohio was expected! We found financial services, IT, legal and many other businesses that focus on cleaning your office to companies that code programs for your office.

What was unexpected was the variation of IT security in each company. We have focused on internet security since our founding and watched our competitors share the same attention. And we agree that cybersecurity has been lucrative since the early 2000s. So, we naturally ask what their company did 5, 10 or 20 years ago. To our astonishment, these companies started in managed services, hosting websites, running cable to network offices, small and large format printed materials or search engine optimization.

We remember security breaches as far back as 1992 when a good friend was hacked. Yes, hacked in 1992! We have been in the IT security field for about 30 years, though Aronetics was born in May 2009.

In our estimation, experience trumps certifications. Not too many have raised the question to the hacker, ‘pardon me, before you enter are you certified?’

Here’s our question – do you want someone who can consult with you on large format printing, whether to choose CAT5e or CAT6 cable, or managed services to handle your IT security? Or do you want a security expert? Aronetics does security and we integrate it with your analytics and infrastructure. We can assist you with your IT environment too.

We’re not here to replace the IT staff in your organization like another competitor. We’re here to augment your staff if you have them and help them or become your IT staff as a remote or onsite consultant. From the director to analysts and programmers, we are ready to shore up your IT weaknesses and negate the eventuality of a hacking incident. If it can happen to Equifax, Sony and Marriott it can happen to you.

We invite you to read these two articles: one from WSJ and the other from CIO.
