If your IT department needs support or cover for illness/holidays, our flexible approach will mean you always have the technical expertise your business needs.

  • What is Pro-active IT Support?

    Reactive IT Support serves as a safety net for when things go wrong. This level of support is often the more favoured choice by sole workers and micro-businesses who have a simple IT infrastructure and require help 'as and when'.

    Our pro-active IT Support provides continuous monitoring on servers and networks to prevent issues occurring in the first place. This includes increased protection from malware (malicious software) attacks and efficient data back-up. With pro-active support, you can have peace of mind that our highly skilled technical team are working in the background to keep things running smoothly. 

  • Why is data backup so important?

    Hardware or software failures, human error, cyber-attacks...these are just some of the ways your data can be lost or damaged. If a disaster happens, having your data backed up means your business can recover quickly from an incident. With proactive monitoring, your data will continuously be backed up on multiple servers for fail-over protection. We can alert you of your storage is running low so that you don't leave any valuable data vulnerable. 

  • Where can we provide your services?

    Linten Technologies has offices based in Manchester and the Midlands. However, as cloud technology specialists, we can work with businesses across the UK.
