Remote IT help offers maximum leverage for your IT dollar by extending user efficiency and shortening the time billed for network repair services. Sophisticated remote access technology and skilled service specialists and engineers allow Progent to solve the majority of IT problems quickly without needlessly expending time and money by making trips to your site.

Progent can put you in touch with Cisco certified CCIE network experts and CISM certified security professionals to help you with the most difficult network issues.

  • Certified Cisco Engineers
    The CCIE credential is the top recognition for network consultants, and certifies an individual's networking knowledge at the expert level. CCIEs can resolve the most complex problems associated with network planning, deployment, management, protection, and troubleshooting. CCIEs operate with the highest priority with Cisco's internal engineers in identifying anomalies with IOS Software network administration tools and coming up with alternate approaches or obtaining software patches to correct problems. CCIEs are an exceptional value because their depth of experience allows them to fix the most intractable problems rapidly. In common cases, less seasoned consultants can wrestle with identical tasks for hours or even days.

    Progent is among the few service firms that makes CCIEs available to help small and mid-size companies. Progent can provide quick access to a CCIE by telephone so that you can receive timely support for urgent network problems that are impacting business efficiency but are beyond the scope of your ordinary IT maintenance personnel. Progent's CCIE support experts can connect to your network by means of sophisticated on-line support technology in order to provide fast and economical diagnosis and repair of critical system trouble.
