IT Made Simple!
Sit back and enjoy the ride.
The Blue Equinox Difference
Your IT Infrastructure is the backbone of your business. Any gaps in security or coverage could result in outages, catastrophic data loss, ransomware attacks, and ultimately, a halt in your ability to conduct business. Add to that, skyrocketing prices have had a direct impact on your bottom line.
It’s time that technology demanded less and delivered more. Less business interruptions and more protection. Less headaches and more solutions. Less limits and more flexibility. Less expenses and more return for the dollars spent. And less complications and more problem solving.
That’s what Blue Equinox is all about – keeping your business secure, profitable and competitive! We do this in a way that saves our customers 20-30% on all of their core technologies.
And it all starts with the IT, Technology and Cybersecurity Audit – where we get to know your business. From the unique compliance issues you may face, to the specific customer concerns, and even the way you work (whether it’s from home, in the office, or a hybrid setup).
IT, Technology & Cybersecurity Audit
Reduce risk, increase compliance, save time, and improve ROI
Each IT, Technology & Cybersecurity Audit is reviewed by a panel of cybersecurity, network, communication, and IT experts to identify any potential security gaps and areas where you might be out of compliance. In addition, this expert panel uncovers areas where you are overspending and provides recommendations on ways to improve performance and bottom-line ROI.
Your Environment Has Changed – Has Your Technology?
Over the past couple of years, the way you do business has changed radically. It’s time to assess HOW you DO business and make sure it fits your changing environment. This starts with a thorough review of your technology.

What Customers are Saying about the IT, Technology & Cybersecurity Audit
The IT Audit identified several areas where we were out of compliance. But what really surprised me was how we could implement necessary cybersecurity upgrades and still save $5,700.00 a month.
Our environment is unique. Being able to work through security, network and data issues with a team of experts gave us an extra set of eyes and was a huge time saver for our IT Team.
I was skeptical about the IT audit. But the Heat Map provided me a simple summary. I was able to discuss our technology environment with our CFO and get a budget for some needed system upgrades.
My favorite part? Definitely the Good, Better, Best options. We chose Best and are implementing 2 years of our technology roadmap over the next 3 months. All with a 15% savings.

We Thoroughly Vet Each Recommended Technology Provider
At Blue Equinox, our reputation is everything! Our customers are our most precious resource and we don’t just introduce them to anyone.
Before a vendor becomes approved and they are introduced to our customers, our Vendor Approval Team puts their business through a highly intense audit and business review process. We scrutinize their customer reviews & SLAs. We reach out to dozens of their current and long-time customers to make sure they received exceptional service and were provided truly unique products and services at price points that are significantly better than their competitors offered. We make sure these customers are highly satisfied with the relationship and the vendor went out of their way to resolve any issues that may have popped up. Most importantly, we make sure these customers would recommend this vendor to their closest family and friends. Once we get an overwhelmingly strong case, we add the vendor to our trusted family of partners we will likely introduce you to during the IT Audit Process.
However, we have strategic relationships (and negotiated discounts) with thousands of the top technology providers throughout the country. If there is a specific partner you want us to bring into the conversation, please let us know during the IT Audit Process, and we will be happy to provide an introduction.
