A Computer Systems Maintenance and Monitoring Solution

Remote Responder℠ Looks After Your Systems, So You Can Look After Your Business

To ensure maximum uptime, you have to proactively monitor your systems around the clock to detect anomalies that could indicate an imminent problem. You have to do timely upgrades, anticipate potential failures, perform sundry proactive and reactive maintenance duties, and audit the environment to ensure policy and best practices are continually employed. Even the most perfectly architected, most robust system can fall victim to a bug, a sudden load spike, an unauthorized intrusion, or some random manifestation of Murphy's Law. Every system needs its administrator to stay abreast of developments (since "change is normal").

Not every organization has the luxury of abundant IT (Information Technology) staff they can dedicate to these tasks. And those that do often prefer to have their IT professionals doing more productive work. That's why we developed Remote Responder℠ — an automated, comprehensive monitoring and systems administration service that can save you money, increase your efficiency, and most important, keep your systems humming along.
