About HLP


HLP offers superior on-site service that can't be matched by competitors.

When you call HLP for service, you'll speak with a knowledgeable technician who will try to fix your problem over the phone.

Your business data is your business. HLP will ensure that your data remains under your control with a multi-tiered approach to systems security. Backups, end-point security, firewalls, spam filters and, UTM, (unified threat management,) are among the security services we offer.

Not all security problems can be solved with technology. HLP recommends a Balance of Power security policy so that one employee does not control all your IT information.


Events that can disrupt your business communications are unpredictable. Protect your company's valuable data by using an HLP's BDR - Backup/Disaster Recovery Server for all your files and applications.

The BDR backs up your server to a local NAS (network attached storage) for up to 15-minute intervals. This service is monitored 24/7. Your backup information is also stored at an off-site vaulting location. In case of disaster, the NAS can be used as your production server or a new NAS can be shipped to with a restored copy of your server.

A remote server gives you the confidence that you'll have access to important information to continue operations should your system go down or your employees not be able to get to the office.
