How we ensure your organisational success

The well-oiled operation of your business tools require proactive monitoring and maintenance to prevent any costly interruptions. Here’s how we do it.

Server monitoring and management

Not only do we keep your servers finely tuned, we also apply patches and firmware updates. At the end of each month we send a detailed maintenance report, containing an overview of work completed, recommendations, with clear action items to ensure you get the most out of your investment.

Network monitoring and support

Your network is a vital ingredient in your recipe for organisational success. We proactively monitor and manage your entire system around the clock to recognise emerging problems before they become significant. Using this information, we work to implement preventative strategies and plan.

Backup and disaster recovery

It may be important that your infrastructure is on premises, but it is also essential to have a disaster recovery plan, including off-site backup. This provides protection against accidental deletion of important files and against malicious attacks that can cripple a business.

Best-in-class security

Our security team uses some of the most respected security brands in the world to monitor your systems 24/7 for viruses, malware, and other potential threats. Partnered with Foresight, we provide specialised services such as penetration testing and a Security Health Check. As well as monitor and manage other security devices, including firewalls, providing updates and ongoing maintenance.

Innovate in a secure environment

We pride ourselves on getting to know the ins and outs of your business. We intimately understand what goes into all types of infrastructure ranging from physical network to the cloud. We act as your trusted advisor by providing suggestions on how to implement cost saving technologies and security solutions.

St. Vincent de Paul

When F1 Solutions started this relationship with St Vincent de Paul Society (SVDP) Canberra/Goulburn, their senior management had the view that IT was a necessary expense rather than a strategic investment. Gradually, as they began to reap the benefits of a sound IT operating environment, their thinking shifted. Today SVDP view IT as an asset, and F1 Solutions and SVDP work in partnership to continually enhance the operational effectiveness of
the organisation.
