Agreement expands client offerings for both data security and advanced cloud capabilities
WARREN – October 18, 2022 – Micro Doctor IT, a full-service IT, security, and managed services technology company, which was founded in 1989, has formed a new partnership with Cleveland-based N2Net.
Micro Doctor IT President Mark Richmond made the decision to partner with a cloud, fiber and data center company to expand offerings for their customers.
“For more than 30 years, we have built our reputation on consistency, accountability, quality, and unique product offerings for our clients. The N2Net team of cloud industry experts fit perfectly into our growing company,” Richmond said.
“Partnering with N2Net allows us to offer our clients a level of product, service, and expertise that takes our offerings to the next level,” said Micro Doctor IT President Mark Richmond. He notes that the firm has also become the premier cybersecurity IT provider with products that prevent attacks before they cause a business interruption. “In both short and long term, the expansion of technology and service offerings will lead to more business success for our clients.”
The partnership is also not one-sided. President Edward Rozak of N2Net said, “The ability to offer enhanced managed service technologies to clients, provide better customer support, and obtain a better geographical reach was something N2Net wanted to achieve.” Rozak stated, “This partnership will create opportunities make our team poised to provide the area with World Class IT support for many years to come. This type of longevity is sparked by our design to stay on the cutting edge and creates loyal customers, opportunities for expansion, and collaboration for our employees”.
“The new partnership supports the transition we made last year from a voice and data company to a full-service IT, cloud, and managed services company,” Rozak explained. “We’ll have direct private access to cloud services from Microsoft Azure and Amazon’s AWS, along with NNI (Network-to-Network) interface with Verizon, CenturyLink, AT&T, Charter Communication/Spectrum, and Everstream, which will allow us to provide whatever is the most cost-effective gigabit bandwidth to a customer’s location. Even more, we’ll be natively connected to VELO cloud, SDWAN (Software Defined WAN) backbone so we can provide cloud redundancy.”
N2Net’s new data center was designed to anticipate and accommodate a wide variety of cybersecurity protections, Rozak said. The facility is heavily camera’d. Future investment plans include several layers of access security including biometrics in order to comply with protections required under PCI (Personal Credit Info), Sarbanes Oxley financial issues, Department of Justice, and various healthcare-related HIPAA restrictions.
For organizations moving data to the cloud, Rozak said data latency is becoming more of a concern. The growth of virtual desktop solutions, as one example, provides a lot of data storage and security advantages but when not implemented with enough bandwidth can actually degrade workplace productivity.
“No one wants to see that spinning hourglass, but even a half second of latency for many applications is intolerable,” he explained. “As many companies are evolving into high-bandwidth consumers of data, the direct backbone access we’ll be able to provide them will be critical for their operations into the next decade.”
NEW Cybersecurity Product
With this announcement, Micro Doctor IT is announcing a new cybersecurity product called Cloud Defense. Since most of the attacks are coming in via stolen cloud credentials, this product stops that and protects these new attacks vector.
The Micro Doctor IT team is looking forward to offering their clients additional advanced fiber, data center, and cloud services. “Cloud-managed service is the fastest-growing area, especially cloud assessment, optimization, and migration services,” said Richmond. Together, Micro Doctor IT and N2Net have become the area’s strongest cloud-managed service provider.
