What Our Clients Say

Implementing a NIST 800-171 compliant system

Optical Cable Corporation (OCC) is a client of Stronghold Cyber Security and have been very happy with the quality, timeliness and efficiency of their support in implementing an NIST 800-171 compliant system for meeting our contractual requirements.  Mr. Jason McNew demonstrated a keen grasp of all the requirements and helped design and implement all of the controls necessary to meet government requirements.  He worked seamlessly with our team to understand our work environment and explain both requirements and options.  His knowledge and expertise, plus his ability to communicate easily with team members who were not IT security specialists, gave us immediate confidence that we had made the right choice with Stronghold Cyber Security.  We highly recommend him to any company that desires to quickly and efficiently develop and implement solutions for protecting sensitive data from intrusion threats and compromise.

Highly recommended services in the complex area of cyber security.

Jason was a tremendous help with bringing our company into compliance with DFARS 252.239.7010/NIST SP 800-171. With a very narrow window to complete this requirement by the end of 2017, Jason sprang into action and drove the project with his thorough knowledge/comprehension of the requirements.  He is very professional, extremely easy to work with and does not waste a minute of your time. This project was a looming nightmare for us and Jason got it done on time and on budget. I highly recommend his services in the complex area of cyber securitye

Understanding our Business Operations

Avans Machine, Inc. needed to be in compliance with DFARS 252.239.7010/NIST SP 800-171 and had minimal resources to pull from. Stronghold Cyber Security was recommended to me by a friend that works in the IT Arena. With a couple short phone calls, Jason was able to understand how our business operates and helped us determine how to meet the requirements without too much disruption. Jason was very prompt and to the point. The process was much more pleasant than I anticipated. I would recommend Stronghold Cyber Security to anyone needing cyber security services.

Appalachia Technologies is an exemplary example of the term “full-service”

Appalachia Technologies is an exemplary example of the term “full-service”. They have the breadth of experience and a wide range of experts available to address every issue I have ever brought to them; from routine end-user support to network evaluation, design, and implementation to unique solutions for complicated situations with sensitive and changing variables to process evaluation and improvement. They can handle emergency system-down situations with the right amount of urgency, and still deliver comprehensive solutions on projects that are company-wide (or larger). It seems it doesn’t matter which technician Appalachia assigns to whatever need, it’s always the right one. The passive monitoring has also shown its’ worth time and again with early warnings and notifications that have prevented larger more costly problems.

One other thing I appreciate is that I can go to Appalachia and not have to worry about a pushy sales pitch. When they add new products or services they think I might be interested in they come to me and let me know they have it available, but it isn’t a transactional relationship. I can go to them with a project and they will give me the solution that’s the best fit for my situation, not the one that happens to be the sales item of the month.

I highly recommend Appalachia Technologies as a partner for all IT needs

I feel privileged to write a testimonial for Appalachia Technologies in regard to both its IT services and the quality of its team. I worked with Appalachia Technologies throughout our entire IT vendor changeover process. For our company, it was important to not only find a vendor that could best support our existing IT processes and systems, but also to improve our processes.

Appalachia Technologies traveled to our site several times and met with our team to ensure we captured all of our key requirements. In addition, they presented us with ideas for process and systems improvements that enabled us to define and optimize our IT processes to align with our company goals and position us for future growth. They recommended many solutions that were much more efficient then what we currently had in place.

The quick thinking and expertise of their team saved us during two particularly stressful occasions; once, when an employee’s computer unexpectedly crashed and they were able to recover all of the data from the machine and again when we had a server stop working unexpectedly and they were able to minimize downtime and keep our company operational.

Changing IT vendors can be a difficult process with many associated risks. The Appalachia Technologies team helped us address the risks and positioned us for a successful changeover. It is not only important to take the appropriate steps when selecting an IT vendor, but to have a partner you trust to help guide you through the process. I highly recommend Appalachia Technologies as a partner for all IT needs.
