Technology services include proactive IT management, multi-layer security including data backup and disaster recovery, 24/7 monitoring and alerting, Help Desk and end-user support, network infrastructure design, and strategic advisement, among others.

The steady increase in our ranking each year year further drives the fact that Apogee is excelling in the MSP industry,” said Nick Merola, Vice President of Sales and Marketing. “We are especially excited to be the highest-ranking MSP in the Pittsburgh region for the third year in a row.”
