Proactive Maintenance and Security:

Cybersecurity threats are a significant concern for businesses of all sizes. Small businesses are particularly vulnerable due to limited resources and the misconception that they are less likely to be targeted. Local IT support takes a proactive approach to ensure that small businesses remain protected against potential cyber threats. They implement robust security measures, such as firewalls, antivirus software, and regular data backups, to safeguard sensitive information. By staying up to date with the latest security protocols, local IT support provides peace of mind to small business owners, allowing them to focus on their core operations.

In the rapidly evolving technological landscape, having reliable local IT support is essential for the success of small businesses. From streamlining operations to ensuring data security, the benefits of local IT support are numerous. It empowers small businesses to overcome technological challenges, focus on their core competencies, and stay competitive in the market. If you are a small business owner, consider partnering with a local IT support provider like Cloud Cover to unlock the full potential of your business and pave the way for growth in the digital era.

"It is with great confidence that I’m writing this letter to recommend the services of Cloud Cover. Our company has been working with Cloud Cover since it first started in 2012. We had worked previously with Cloud Cover CEO Brent Kenreich and knew once he started this venture that we were going to be on board. Cloud Cover has shown great dedication to our company. They are responsive to our daily IT challenges, and make sure to follow up quickly. Cloud Cover also works hard to keep us safe by staying up to date on all security measures and making sure our team learns and knows about those dangers. Along with that, they work closely with us to make sure we are managing our equipment properly and help us to strategize for our future needs. I can’t say enough about Cloud Cover and their team.

"Brent brought a wide variety of skills to our environment. He engineered and implemented aspects of our websites, managed developers, migrated our email system, troubleshot our wide area network and helped develop internal support procedures. He has a refreshingly deep understanding of how technology impacts business, along with a keen ability to clearly relate key information in a way that allowed our management team to make informed decisions pertaining to our IT infrastructure."

"When my business was hit with suspected ransomware, I contacted Cloud Cover in a total panic. Within 20 minutes, Zach showed up, took a look at my system and was able to get us back and running within the hour after his arrival. I did not lose anything. After that, we let them make several recommendations of how to be better prepared and to avoid being hacked. Thanks to Cloud Cover team for the great service and recommendations!"
