You Can Trust A Better Choice

Granting access to your business’ systems and information is like handing over the keys to your company! When choosing an IT company, you need to be able to trust them with your data. Choose someone carefully. They must be committed to protecting your business from cyber-criminals.

Our founder, David Thornton, spent 26 years in law enforcement in Hillsborough County. Hence, his commitment to serve and protect carries over to the way he conducts business.

During his service, David observed an alarming rise in identity theft.  “I was inspired by the Target breach to learn how to secure the critical data needed to run a business.”  He focused on cyber-security initially, and found that businesses could not afford to upgrade their network.  Then he shifted to finding ways to provide quality solutions and still make them affordable.  That’s what makes us “A Better Choice.”

Keeping your money out of the hands of cyber-criminals is our passion.

Our job is to make your job easier so you can get back to what you need to be doing!

Prior to hiring A Better Choice Network Solutions in 2015, I was having real problems with my business server and workstations. My former computer repair company had sold, and I could not get the new company to return my calls or fix the problems I was having. The results of their assessment were worse than I had even thought. I had more than 50 critical and security updates that had not been done on my server, and it was infected with over 2000 different malware programs. I get a monthly report on the health of my network now, and the SPAM emails I was receiving and had to sift through have been almost entirely eliminated. In fact, the SPAM filter that they installed blocked over 12,000 SPAM emails in the first year, saving us a lot of time. I asked David to research a software purchase that I needed for my company, and he was able to get us a 60 day free trial. When the trial expired, he installed the same version for $800 less than the original retail price.
