Network and IT support

Why Settle has been supporting networks since 1996 which makes us one of the most experienced IT network service providers in Scotland.

Networks are a whole lot more stable now than they were then, but the challenges are increasingly complex, dependency on email, web access and the applications we use to run our businesses has become absolute on many occasions.

When your users login they need to be productive and for that to happen, your network needs to run smoothly. This is our business.

How we help

We monitor your network 24×7 and catch alerts as they occur.

Our clients come overwhelmingly from the professional services, people who depend on their networks and email to get their work done, and who don’t need to ponder the cost of downtime. They come to Why Settle because we offer the very best service in Scotland.

Our staff are experienced, qualified and dedicated to living up to our well-established reputation.

We are proactive

Keeping your network safe, secure and reliable.

Security is so much more than just having a good firewall.

Securing the Network is now such an instinctive part of business discipline you will hopefully have little new to learn on the subject, but as the way we work changes, security plans must change also.

Keeping on top of security is never straightforward but doing simple things well can help.

For many companies, the intrinsic value of their business is tied-up in their data. Customer records, email correspondence, work reports and cost information describes the core of the business in great detail.

Keeping the Network secure should be a priority.

Anytime anywhere access, always up to date, no physical hardware.

Cloud based services are changing the way we work and share information, with the most immediate impact on what we pay to use software like Office and email.

Businesses no longer need to make significant up-front investments in expensive email, file storage and multi-location collaboration systems.  With products like Office 365 there is no longer any need to invest in up-front licence costs.

Cloud servers can now host your data and files, so you don’t need to buy large physical servers, or continually replace an expensive backup.

Why Settle have migrated dozens of clients onto cloud based offerings and will be able to give you some insights into the process.  Get in touch and we’ll show you how.

A decade ago this kind of Business Continuity was so expensive it was exclusively for large enterprises.

3, 2, 1.

That is all you need to know about backup.

Three – copies on your data. One in production, the second in some form of onsite backup, the third – offsite.

This is the golden rule of backup.

Ransomware attacks will encrypt local backups, before taking out the server.  Anything which can be accesses by a network user, including ext hdd’s, can fall under the same threat panorama.

Most Why Settle clients use their broadband at night to securely pass their data to an indelible store.  Nothing can reach or delete the data.  What’s more, we can invoke the recovery of an entire server from our data cloud.

Domains, Websites, Hosting, SSL, DNS + all the other buzz words you have no idea about.

Just owning a domain name for your company brings about lots of management tasks. We can help with these, and keep your web services under one roof.

We take care of many of our clients websites, hosting DNS and email – this means making changes, be it a company name change, or website update need not be an issue for them. Whether we build the website for you, or simply host it, you know you have full control – and easy contact for future needs.

Can you take over from my current provider?
Yep. We would love to, and can also assist in the migration of your website to our hosting. (we will also probably beat them on price!)
Do you host data in the UK?
Our main web servers are located in the UK, however we also have a couple dotted about the world.
Do you build websites?
We do! and would love to hear from you with any queries you may have. We offer free no-obligation quoting on all websites- so don’t be scared to get in touch!
