 Server Administration Package Details
Solution Our new system administration package encompasses server security. The new system administration package is $29.95/mo. You could just use it for a month to get everything in order and then cancel it. You could retain it on a monthly basis as well and request these security checks and updates to be done weekly or monthly just to stay on top of security.
