Matt Disher
President

Second-To-None Security In The Desert

Throughout vast changes in technology and world affairs, Southwest Networks keeps their promise to defend their clients’ data, providing the best protections available against cyber-attacks. This level of commitment should come as no surprise, as the firm, a managed services provider that caters to small and medium-sized businesses in and around Palm Desert, California, was founded and is currently led by members of the US Marine Corps. Exuding integrity mirroring Marine values, the company seeks to provide top-tier, enterprise-level IT practices and solutions to the small business sector within their small business budgets, striving to eliminate IT issues before they cause expensive downtime.

Keep Your Company Ahead Of The Curve On Cyber Security

We’re ahead of the curve as far as security is concerned. I started working on our company’s security a couple years ago, investing heavily in technicians and engineers, keeping up on education, encouraging advanced certifications, attending events, strengthening partnerships, and building our security stack so we can provide the right security services.

That has put us ahead of the curve at a time when cybercriminals and hackers around the world are attacking IT companies like ours to get to their clients. We’ve invested heavily in internal tools and protecting our house, and that has allowed us to concentrate on providing the best security stack for our clients to fit their needs and ensure they’re protected, from security training to antivirus protection.

Matt recently became certified as a Health Care Information Security and Privacy Practitioner (HCISPP) and a Certified Information Systems Security Professional (CISSP), distinctions achieved by only a few thousand IT professionals worldwide. To further demonstrate his commitment to the success of small businesses, he authored a book, Keys To The Castle, a guide for small business owners navigating the world of hiring IT consultants. In addition, he releases monthly vlogs called Cappuccino Chats, in which he hosts employees, colleagues, clients and even his children to discuss the latest advances in technology. His youngest daughter, Audrey, who at the age of six was already providing a challenge to her parents with overuse of data on her tablet, inspired the chats, and she appeared as his first guest.

Top Reasons You Will Want To Work With Us

We Serve Many Different Industries in California. No two businesses are exactly alike. We look at each of our client’s individual goals and customize our service plans to ensure that the support we provide always makes the most sense for their unique goals and needs. Our contracts are designed around you so you never pay for services you don’t need.

We Have The Ability To Address Your IT Needs – From Vision Through Long-Term Support. We can assist you from start to finish on a project. From vision to design and planning, to product specification through pricing and acquisition, to installation, implementation, documentation and project management, to post-project support of you and/or your users. This allows you to have one consistent team to work with that understands your environment, your people, how you work and your history, which means you don’t have to waste time educating us.

We Have A Team Of Certified Experts On Staff. Unlike other IT firms, we have a team of engineers on staff with diverse, specialized areas of expertise who work together to deliver the most effective and correct solutions to you. As a client, you are assigned to one of these teams. That means you’ll always be able to get someone on the phone who knows YOU and understands YOUR environment and YOUR systems to provide helpful answers and quick resolutions to problems instead of having to talk to a complete stranger hundreds of miles away who knows nothing about you or your systems and wastes your time asking a lot of really dumb and annoying questions to try and “help” you.

We Support Both On-Premise And Cloud Solutions. Some IT firms won’t offer or recommend cheaper cloud solutions because THEY make less money. Our philosophy is – and always has been – to offer what’s BEST for the customer, not us. That’s how we keep so many customers long-term. We’ll base our recommendations on what YOU want and what YOU feel most comfortable with. Our job is to lay out your options, educate you on the pros and cons of each and guide you to the best, most cost-effective solution for you.

We Use Our Vendor Relationships To YOUR Advantage. Having an advanced level of partnership with key vendors (Microsoft, VMware, HP and Cisco) allows us access to special pre- and post-project assistance support levels that most “partners” do not have. We are able to provide the right solutions, priced right and validated by the vendor, so if any issues come up, we can get them resolved quickly and effectively.

All Projects Are Completed As Agreed Upon And On Budget. When you hire us to complete a project for you, we won’t nickel-and-dime you with unforeseen or unexpected charges or delays. We guarantee to deliver precisely what we promised to deliver, on time and on budget. We can offer our projects on a fixed-fee basis so you know exactly what you’re going to pay, not a penny more.

We Have Flexible, Tailored-To-Your-Needs Support Options. To help you better manage your environment. We provide our customers with a variety of managed support options, ranging from back-end maintenance and monitoring for issues, to user help-desk support with ticketing, to strategy and budget and asset/license life-cycle management. We have successfully provided these services for over 20 years and can create a solution specifically for you and your team. No cookie cutter contracts.
