What Our Clients Say About Us:

Secure Networkers has been our IT company for eight years. Their staff have all the necessary specializations and they keep us up, running and productive.

We will be forever grateful for their service on April 18, 2016-Tax Day flood in Houston.

We are a CPA that prepares and files tax returns. On that day I arrived at the office at 6:00 to discover that we had power but no internet.

Todd Ellis, an owner, braved flooded streets and sheeting rain to travel 30 miles for more than 3½ hours to rescue us. He restored internet service. We e-filed the returns and extensions. We did not have to revert to paper filing.

That Marine saved us.
