Finding Computer Repair in Greenville and Upstate South Carolina

Yesterday I wrote about how phone books seem to be going the way of the Commodore 64 (relegated to being used as a door stop). Of course as soon as I said that, I got a phone call from a potential client who had gotten our name out of the phone book. First one this year I believe. However, she …

Just what DOES Homeland Secure IT, LLC do anyway?

That question was asked in a webinar a bit ago and was difficult to explain because what we do at Homeland Secure IT is far more than can be explained in a simple response like, “We work on computers”.
