“Over the years I have had many opportunities to work with a variety of Information Technology vendors and none can compare to the service Layer8 provides. Layer8’s team works really well with our entire staff and their varying technological expertise.  They are a smart, results oriented team that I trust to keep our network running and secure.  Perhaps even more important than that when we experience any difficulties with our systems they are always there to help.”
