Progent: Technology Solutions for the Progressive Enterprise
Progent San Jose HeadquartersFor more than 20 years, Progent's IT experts have been the premier source of affordable integration, troubleshooting and development services for networks that incorporate technologies from Microsoft, Cisco, Apple, Linux, VMware, Palo Alto Networks, and other leading vendors. Progent is unique in offering fast online access to top-tier experts and has delivered online help to clients in every state in the U.S.

Headquartered in San Jose in the heart of California's Silicon Valley, Progent has also assembled full-service consulting teams capable of providing onsite expertise in dozens of metropolitan areas across the U.S. and Canada including New York City, Dallas, Atlanta, Pittsburgh, Seattle, Los Angeles, Miami, San Francisco and Toronto.

Whether your business needs quick guidance for configuring a VPN connection, wants project management help in rolling out a new release of Exchange, or requires seamless integration with Azure, AWS, or Google cloud services, Progent is the smart and affordable choice for supplementing your in-house IT staff with certified world-class talent.

IT Support Models to Match Your Needs and Budget
Progent offers a range of IT support models to meet virtually any client's technical needs and budget. If you're looking for occasional guidance from a subject matter specialist or urgent support from a desktop technician or network infrastructure engineer, Progent offers online access to seasoned IT experts at a per-minute billing rate. If you want turn-key outsourcing of a specific area of network management such as backup/recovery or active security monitoring, Progent offers the extensive ProSight suite of managed services, which are available on a subscription basis for a low monthly rate. Progent also offers specially priced packages of one-time services such as ransomware vulnerability assessment or stealth penetration testing. Progent's expertise in online support and troubleshooting and Progent's investment in the industry's most advanced remote monitoring and management (RMM) tools allow smaller organizations with little if any fulltime IT staff to benefit from the same level of support as major enterprises with large IT management and support organizations.

Remote Possibilities
Traditional delivery of IT support services to small businesses is based on the efforts of a local consultant on whom a client company relies for virtually all network assistance. This onsite model is fraught with problems due to the absence of a complementary remote support organization. Many issues that could be resolved immediately via a skilled team of remote support engineers are often unnecessarily prolonged while waiting for a local consultant to show up in person. The resulting losses in productivity are often compounded by a cost structure that typically requires minimum onsite charges that can turn a 10-minute problem into a 2-hour invoice. Progent's business model of billing by the minute for a la carte consulting and charging only for service actually delivered allows Progent's remote support experts to solve hundreds of small problems daily at the lowest possible cost. Further, the confidence of having ready access to a large team of network professionals makes it feasible for small organizations to take on strategic IT projects like cloud integration that they might otherwise shy away from for fear of having inadequate technical resources.

Progent's Value Proposition
Progent has built a roster of top technology experts across the US and Canada. Many IT support organizations have pursued a path of cost reduction by outsourcing expertise to countries where labor is cheap but where language and cultural barriers pose significant challenges to providing effective support. Progent has succeeded by leveraging a proven, state-of-the art virtual office infrastructure and an efficient remote support model to provide one of the best value propositions available to small and mid-size businesses. Progent's engineers know how to work effectively with a company's in-house support personnel to deliver fast solutions that minimize both consulting fees and lost productivity due to network downtime.

In-depth Expertise Saves Time and Money
Progent's team of more around 200 consultants includes IT generalists together with subject matter experts (SMEs), making it possible for clients to get the most efficient and cost-effective IT support possible. Rather than having IT generalists flail around with niche technologies with they may have little experience, Progent's first-level support personnel can escalate problems to veteran consultants. We draw on their deep technical knowledge to deal with complex issues. We follow industry best practices to provide solutions that build a solid foundation for today's requirements and future growth.

The ProSight Suite of Managed Services
Progent has partnered with world-class network management technology companies to create the ProSight family of remote network monitoring and services management. These subscription-based service offerings are designed to provide small and mid-size businesses with budget-friendly, enterprise-class solutions for all major aspects of network management, cybersecurity, and information assurance.
