Preparedness for COVID-19 / Coronavirus

If we find ourselves faced with a quarantine / lock-down situation such as in China and now Italy and Iran, where our businesses may be closed by order of the authorities, what’s YOUR backup plan?

We entirely phased out home / individual services except to owners and staff of our existing business clients. Part of that decision was directly influenced by …

We’ve been nominated Best of the Upstate – Best Computer Services!

In this day and age, where the “big boys” are the only ones who can afford TV and print ads, it’s amazing when a small, local business gets a little blurb out there… Especially when it’s “free” so to speak….

We’re about to celebrate our NINTH YEAR!

Can you believe it? Homeland Secure IT opened our doors in 2009 and here it is 2018. When we took our first call it was during one of the worst economic times Pamela and I had seen.
