WHY US

Concierge CIO

Sound Business Model

The difference we make is in the productivity you gain. Your IT infrastructure is the backbone of your organization. It empowers people and runs the apps that run your business. It delivers customer and workplace experiences that define who you are. It must evolve rapidly. Our role at your side is to build and manage this infrastructure, but first and foremost, it is to help you unlock business value, in the C suite and in your teams, with knowledge, hands-on support, and enabling training.

Zero Trust | EDR/MDR | VAD/VDI

Security at the Edge

In today’s business landscape, remote work, mobile technology, cloud computing, and shadow IT have rendered the traditional castle-and-moat approach to cybersecurity ineffective. The network perimeter is no longer a reliable security boundary, and the focus has shifted to securing endpoints and applications. Our technology stack is designed to natively support this contemporary context, providing robust security measures that protect your organization’s data and assets from cyber threats anywhere.

Microsoft 365 | Google Workspace...

Higher Cloud Productivity

Individuals, departments, and organizations have different needs, preferences, and expectations. Managers who value simplicity, flexibility, and teamwork may prefer Google Workspace. Others, who value compatibility, familiarity, and advanced functionalities like Microsoft 365. Some add on Proton because they need the security and privacy it offers. With us, you can mix and match, use multiple cloud productivity suites across the organization with a single domain name. [More]

Software-defined infrastructure

On Premises IT simplified

There is a proper way to host resources on premises: through the use of a Hyperconverged Infrastructure (HCI) virtualization platform. This resilient software-based system combines all the elements of a traditional data center (storage, compute, networking, backups, and management) in a cluster of three or more physical servers. HCI disentangles hardware, software and data, facilitating usage, maintenance and security. New virtual desktops, applications, or file shares can be deployed in hours (within your firewall perimeter, or outside of it with Zero Trust). [More]

Third party risk management

Infrastructure Sovereignty

We shield our clients from the vendor lock-in and security risks inherent to using proprietary or niche solutions (through the use of FOSS). Access to your data and infrastructure by third party entities is limited to service providers you trust (e.g.: LOB's, Microsoft 365, Google Workspace...). Furthermore, The tools we use to manage and monitor your computers and M365 are self-hosted in single-tenant servers (to insulate you from supply chain attack.) [More]

Systematic Redundancy

Business Continuity

We protect our clients' IT infrastructure from downtime and catastrophes through systematic redundancy. Whatever can fail has its failover mechanism: physical and virtual servers (on-prem, off site or in the cloud), firewalls, switches, domain controllers, file shares, backups, applications, personal computers, access to the Internet, VPN, network, cloud storage, and Office Suites. Even we, in out IT role, are always two to support you. [More]

Open Source Technology

FOSS = Optimized Costs

We achieve dramatic savings in maintenance costs through the use of industry-standard, robust, and scalable open-source software for the management of your personal computers, servers, hypervisors, domain controllers, apps, shares, cyber security, and backups. This makes FOSS one of the pillars of our business model. [More]

Predictable Pricing


For the sake of simplicity, accuracy, and transparency, we price our services on a per-user and/or per-device basis. To each device corresponds a service.

The "devices" are personal computers and servers - physical or virtual - and the software they run, as well as firewalls and networking equipment. Mobile phones are supported alongside PC's. Prices decrease with quantity. Unless specified, the cost of your cloud productivity suites and LOBs is not included.

IT service consumption varies significantly across organizations. Our plans are all inclusive. Use discount codes to adjust our feature sets to your needs and budget. Read and follow our terms to avoid overages and determine what constitute managed services (plans) and project services.

Check our service catalog for more details and options. Use our payment portal to manage your "subscriptions", and our onboarding page to manage your users.
