IT Consulting Services

Information technology planning and implementation with cybersecurity in mind.

To keep pace in today’s fast-moving IT landscape, successful businesses rely on the expertise of consultants who can road map the best technology investments to overcome challenges, innovate, and accelerate company vision. At ISE, our methodology helps build better information technology solutions that not only improve business performance but stand sentinel against the ever-advancing adversaries to cybersecurity.

Does My Business Need IT Consulting Services?

If you are like some of our best clients, the following scenarios may feel familiar:

IT staff is overworked and doesn’t have the bandwidth to take a new project.
No internal IT team at your operation and need a specialist to execute IT projects.
Transitioning MSPs and no internal specialist to project manage.
Internal IT talent is more generalist-minded or is in the process of being hired.
MSP provider that lacks the expertise to optimally secure my IT infrastructure.

ISE’s IT consulting services enable small and medium-sized businesses to accelerate business goals by scaling resources. Our team is an extension of your own, helping to guide your enterprise through projects including net new IT infrastructure deployments, cloud migrations, or optimization and security enhancements for AWS and other cloud environments.

Do I Need IT Consulting Services if I’m Using a Managed Service Provider (MSP)?

It depends. If you have knowledgeable IT staff on-premises then perhaps not. But for businesses without dedicated IT personnel, or with in-house teams lacking the bandwidth, engaging with an IT consultant is vital to a successful, secure, and timely deployment.

Whether you are building a system from scratch, transitioning between MSP providers, or migrating to a cloud infrastructure, it’s important to have an experienced consultant on the project with a strong background in IT architecture as well as cybersecurity to get the most ROI from your IT investment.

Keep in mind that the majority of MSPs typically lack the specialist expertise for developing systems that will protect against the most sophisticated adversarial exploits. The security analysts at ISE help ensure that your IT environment is built with security in mind, to mitigate risk from internal and external teams, vendors, and adversaries.

We Place Cybersecurity at the Forefront of Developing Transformative IT Solutions

The unfortunate reality of today’s technology landscape is that security vulnerabilities exist, and if an attacker finds them before you do, those vulnerabilities will be exploited.

At ISE, we deliver IT consulting services with cybersecurity in mind to build a stronger system infrastructure that mitigates risk and remediates vulnerabilities before they get exploited. Our analysts deliver collaborative results that make companies measurably better by building better security systems across every level of your organization.
