The Net Effect provides technology consulting services on information security and project management to commercial, non-profit and governmental organizations. Our team of experts work with clients' staff and third-party vendors to develop optimal solutions to operational challenges.
What Makes The Net Effect Different?
First, we are truly consultants. That means we don't sell any hardware or software or anyone else's services, only our own time and our expertise.
Second, our strength lies in applying technology to the needs of business. We are often the arbiters or translators between IT, finance, operations and sales. Our collective work experience gives us a unique understanding of what technology actually needs to accomplish in the business environment.
Third, security is always foremost in our minds. Regardless of the project, security will always be a primary consideration in our work.
Finally, it's our people who truly make the difference. For more than twenty years, we have worked together to meet the technology and security needs of organizations like yours.
