What makes Harmony Tech different from other managed IT service companies?

For one, we treat you as family, not just another client. We advise you on ways to use technology to help grow your company and make it more efficient. Harmony Tech is also one of the most secure managed IT service providers around- our Founder’s background is in military intelligence and offensive / defensive network warfare and is a member of the FBI’s InfraGard program. Since we started in 2011, not a SINGLE client has experienced a network breach or virus/malware/ransomware infection. We also don’t try to sell you things you don’t need, in fact, we shop around to get you the best deal on hardware and software and we don’t mark those up at all. Harmony Tech believes that companies who profit on hardware / software they sell you have a conflict of interest and they may be selling you what is best for their bottom line, and not what’s best for your company.
