Top 10 Reasons Why AppliedTrust is Different From Other IT Consulting Firms
AppliedTrust was founded on the belief that the performance, availability, and security of systems and networks are critical to an organization, so infrastructure, security, and opensource are our core competencies. We did not start out as a business consulting company, accounting firm, or product reseller and expand into security. We focus entirely on your systems and networks and how to make them secure, available, and performing at their peak, favoring opensource technologies where appropriate – and how to share our expertise with you.
AppliedTrust was founded by and employs experts in the IT infrastructure, security, and opensource space. We speak at conferences, author books, and write articles. These activities not only keep us at the top of our field, but the resources are also available to you and your staff, and we look forward to sharing our knowledge with you.
Our engineers are constantly striving to improve their own knowledge and their service to our clients, through continuing education and industry-accepted certifications. And we strive to empower our clients by transferring that knowledge to them as well. Whether we’re engaged with your organization on an assessment, managing an incident, deploying new technology, or managing day-to-day infrastructure, we thoroughly document all of our actions and recommendations, and seek the input of those folks who know your environment best – you and your staff.
AppliedTrust is technology independent. We do not sell products, and we do not have vendor alliances with companies that do sell products. We evaluate all potential solutions – including opensource alternatives – to find the one that is most appropriate for each client, because we know that no single solution is right for every customer. We stay neutral, only recommending solutions that really make sense for our clients.
At AppliedTrust, we are sensitive to the needs of our individual clients. When evaluating a solution, we examine how an organization conducts its business, and what its value drivers are, to ensure the very best results.
AppliedTrust has served a wide variety of customers includes small companies, large companies, financial service companies, nonprofit organizations, city governments, school districts, hospitals, and medical centers. This wide range of customers gives us the ability to be flexible yet experienced and wise across many industries and organizations.
We have helped many clients who are facing challenges related to regulatory requirements such as HIPAA and Sarbanes-Oxley. These regulations are pushing organizations toward improved IT governance and IT policy. AppliedTrust can help you effectively understand, achieve, and maintain compliance in a practical manner.
We have deep technical expertise in many environments including Microsoft, Unix, and Linux. This allows us to expertly manage your entire environment, not just portions of it.
We do not just give advice: We also maintain systems. We are not going to suggest a solution that looks good on paper but is not practical. We will only provide you with reasonable, manageable solutions.
Our company is large enough to ensure there will always be someone available to help you, but small enough that you will have a personal relationship with the team that works with your organization.
