Solutions For Business

What’s the secret to enabling IT to work more strategically? The answer is managed IT services, a cost-effective way to extend IT talent and free up skilled resources to accomplish business goals and ensure continuity.

Net56 can provide these resources and help you re-build the IT portion of your business plan to avoid obstacles that can negatively affect your bottom line.

Solutions for Cybersecurity 

Providing a safe digital and network environment for today’s students, teachers and administrators is essential for facilitating great teaching and learning.

Net56 offers a comprehensive security-as-a-service solution to continuously uncover and protect against potential and reoccurring security threats within your school district’s network.

Solutions For Education

Your teachers are creating learning experiences for their students and your technology staff is working hard to make the most of your IT investments.

Net56 provides your staff the time and resources required to achieve your district’s educational mission. We offer managed IT services that overcome obstacles that can prevent you from reaching your goals.

Solutions For Government

Every day, municipalities are challenged with the tasks of managing vital records and delivering services to its citizens. Public administrators are dealing with the same IT workload seen by businesses but have to manage with a fraction of the personnel and financial resources.

Net56 provides the key resources municipalities need to build flexible and cost-effective IT solutions.

“The Net56 Technology Audit provided me with critical information about my current technology infrastructure in terms I could easily understand as someone who does not have an IT background. This empowered me to better prioritize decisions regarding our immediate needs, and to do intelligent planning for the future as it pertains to the addition of new technology-related teaching and learning resources.”

“Net56 also provided me with options for improvement, as opposed to selling me a one-size-fits-all solution. This showed me they cared about the unique needs of my district.”

-Dr. Kevin Russell, Superintendent of Schools at Chicago Ridge School District 127.5
