Welcome to 873gear

Far too many small businesses depend on Information Technology and either can not afford IT techs or administer their own technology and leave gaping holes in security. In today’s world of ever increasing cyber-security threats, the least protected are typically the small “mom and pop” businesses. These businesses are unable to withstand a serious breach of security and the financial and legal ramifications that may result.

Enter 873gear.

I offer general IT service and specialized cyber-security analysis priced for the small business, specifically within the greater Dallas Fort Worth area. Whether it’s fixing the stubborn printer, troubleshooting a machine or router, or providing physical and network security, cyber-security threat assessment, and defense-in-depth access denial, I am able to help… for a price you can afford.

It is my commitment to bring IT service to the small business at an affordable price point that doesn’t fluctuate. For security audits and general IT consulting, I’m happy to provide you with an estimate up-front, a written quote before work, and a very detailed invoice when the job is completed. 873gear works for you as an independent contractor.

Data storage, web hosting, website management, on-call tech support, and all other persistent services are billed monthly or yearly at a “locked-in” rate.

The amount you pay today for those monthly services will be the same amount you pay in 10 years. That’s my promise to you.
