IT Patching - Madison, Milwaukee



Think of patching as the health check that proactively locates potential weaknesses that could affect your system and applies patches to them. Without the patch, bacteria and dirt (harmful network attacks) could get into your system. Many networks fall prey to attacks that could have been prevented by a simple patch. We know how critical your network security is for the daily operation and productivity of your organization. That is why we have regularly scheduled path management during non-business hours. Our team has tools in place to make patch management easy, saving your team the time, money, and frustration of internal patch management. And with our patch health reports, you can keep apprised of your network’s security and meet compliance requirements in your industry.

Outsourced IT

Outsourced IT

Not sure you want to take the plunge to fully-managed IT support? We understand. That’s why we offer outsourced IT (OIT) to suit your business’ IT needs. With OIT, we can create a bundle of hours you can use as you need them: for remote support, IT projects, network analysis, backup support, regularly scheduled engineer visits, routine maintenance, and a whole lot more. You can customize your OIT so much, we suggest giving us a call so we can help assess what you need from an IT provider. After all, it’s your network and your outsourced IT.

Direct Networks’ xPulse provides you with the benefits of a full IT department – at a fraction of the cost! Your xPulse IT team includes remote help desk engineers, 24-hour staffing, IT consultants, a purchasing agent, onsite engineers, and a compliance team. Our virtual CIO and IT advisory services guide your business through the minutiae of comprehensive IT support, including upgrades, audits, and road maps for the future. Our team corresponds with vendors on your behalf, building and maintaining those relationships key to your business’ success. xPulse also includes full management of your licensing and maintenance contract statuses, so you’re always up-to-date.
