From day one, Ronnie Apteker, Thomas McWalter and Philip Green believed in the power and possibilities of the Internet.

IS provides complete IT solutions for Kenya

That is why, in 1993, they founded Internet Solutions, which has been providing clients with quality technology solutions and excellent service ever since.

In the early days, IS focused on dial-up home users. While the business has always worked with corporates, it initially had a more people-centric approach which allowed us to work on a range of projects such as online banking platforms, payment gateways, reservation systems and complex security solutions.

Now, in 2017, IS remains at the forefront of innovation, providing always-on technology infrastructure to clients across Africa. We ensure scalability, efficiency and security through our end-to-end communication, collaboration and transactional solutions.

Here’s a breakdown of what we offer:

Cloud: When it comes to top local and global cloud service platforms, all managed in one place, we’ve got you covered. We ensure that your IT environment delivers business outcomes through our monitoring, managed hosting and other cloud services. Through our cloud offerings, you can access the infrastructure needed to run sophisticated applications and the flexibility to increase or decrease capacity as your requirements change. From a cloud services perspective, we offer a range of hosting solutions, private, public and hybrid cloud environments, managed services, virtual servers, monitoring, security, backup and recovery, and domain and hosting packages.

Communications: Businesses often struggle to maintain their more traditional channels while embracing new technologies. From fax, SMS and email to voice, hosted contact centres and multimedia services, our innovative solutions are truly comprehensive. Our voice offerings enable new ways of communicating over the Internet – from high-quality voice calls to multimedia services – using our secure, reliable platforms. Our more traditional communication offerings allow you to send and receive faxes as email attachments or to use SMSes more effectively via our broadcast, alert and short-code SMS services.

Security: Cybersecurity starts with detecting the problem. Our security solutions include vulnerability scans, intrusion detection systems and firewalls designed to help you detect potential threats, defend against breaches and respond immediately if there’s an incident.

Connectivity: As a growing part of the digitally interconnected and mobile world, Kenyans increasingly expect the kind of high-speed, secure and reliable connectivity that our solutions deliver. Would you like your workforce to have anywhere access? Do you want to be able to enjoy the benefits of bandwidth-intensive applications, cloud services and communication tools? Does your business need to deliver super-fast, always-available connectivity? Do you need to make high-volume data transfers? Our solutions support these needs and more.

Data centre: While every business wants the benefits of high-performing infrastructure, relatively few can afford the associated expenses. By leveraging our secure hosting, fast access and on-demand availability, you can avoid the expensive set-up and maintenance costs. Our data centre solutions grow with your business, with colocation, cloud-rack and cloud networking solutions that free up your time to focus on what you do best.

Every day we commit ourselves to ensuring that more people can experience the power and possibilities of the Internet. Every day we try to do things better so that things work better for everyone.

At IS, we create for the community, build for better, and deliver with the best.
