ALPHARETTA, GA — April 26 , 2016– InterDev, an Atlanta-area provider of information technology and security services, today announced it is the new Managed Information Technology (IT) Services provider for the City of Beaufort, South Carolina. Having completed an IT assessment to serve as the foundation for the city’s new maintenance and support program, InterDev will provide 24/7 monitoring and maintenance of servers, networks, employee workstations, backup systems, and hosted applications with guaranteed priority response for issues that arise.
For the contract, which InterDev won through a competitive bidding process that included both public and private service providers, the City of Beaufort will also receive strategic planning, help desk support, remote access administration, security services, comprehensive network and desktop device reporting, disaster recovery planning/administration, and Microsoft Exchange email system management and support.
“InterDev was totally professional and brought us everything we needed. They are our entire IT department, providing everything that it takes to make sure our technology is running,” said City of Beaufort City Manager William Prokop. “We wanted a company that was going to show us what we didn’t know—keep us current and show us how to use IT tools in the modern environment—and InterDev is also doing that.”
InterDev will be performing vendor management, acting as a liaison between the other technology providers, such as telecommunications, that work with the City of Beaufort. In a planning capacity, InterDev will be educating city officials about technology advances that other municipalities are using, helping the city to implement and adopt improvements as they are approved.
“The City of Beaufort, like so many cities, needs robust technology to service its citizens and businesses, but doesn’t necessarily have the know-how to achieve it,” said InterDev CEO Gary Nichols. “We are honored to partner with the city to help it fortify and enhance its IT operations while also helping it explore new technology horizons.”
InterDev has been providing information technology (IT) support and security services to corporations, non-profit and educational organizations and public-sector entities for more than three decades. In addition to managing and hosting IT operations for its valued clients, InterDev also provides leading edge IT security solutions — based on technologies from Palo Alto Networks, Extreme Networks and Dell SecureWorks — as well as telecommunications consulting including VoIP phone systems, and voice and data circuits.
