What If I Use Another IT Provider?
A thorough network audit is a specialty service from Heart of Texas Network Consultants.

However, when it comes to something as important as the security of your network, calling in reinforcements is always a good idea.
Simply put, it's about how much you value your company's network security. Gaining more knowledge about the security of your network will be a tremendous value to your business. With our thorough network security audit, we can find vulnerabilities missed by other IT providers. It's a classic case of benefiting from having more eyes and more experts on a problem.
