“Keeping Companies Safe & Secure”

Chris Lietz is a natural innovator and entrepreneur; by combining his advanced technical skillset with exceptional business acumen, he has grown Data-Tech from a Computer Repair company to an award-winning Managed Service Provider offering a full array of best-in-class IT solutions to SMBs across the state of Florida. Chris’s passion for IT and belief that ‘you can never stop improving’ has provided him with the ability to grow dynamically, change, and adapt to the Technology Curve and keep Data-Tech at the forefront of the Technology Service Industry since 1996.

As Data-Tech’s President and CEO, Chris leads the organization’s short- and long-term strategic direction to create value for Data-Tech’s existing and prospective clients, partners, team members, and their community. Although Data-Tech has grown to become one of the Largest MSSPs around, Chris encourages everyone to maintain the family atmosphere with compassion and mutual respect, an approach that has proven successful over the years and essential in the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic. Throughout the pandemic, Chris was able to keep Data-Tech fully operational and retain our workforce.

Data-Tech is not a ‘one and done’ IT provider. Instead, they seek to create meaningful, long-lasting relationships with clients and provide them with better services, better pricing, and a better customer experience. “Every one of our clients has a dedicated Account Manager, or as we like to call them, a Trusted Advisor, available to answer any questions our clients have and provide guidance on the best IT solutions to meet our clients’ needs,” says Chris. “Our Trusted Advisors represent the needs and the best interests of our clients so that they feel comfortable asking us for advice or suggestions related to their technology. Our team of certified engineers and technicians, unparalleled variety of enterprise-level IT solutions, 24/7/365 help desk support, and state-of-the-art data center are just some of the reasons we have remained one of the industry’s top IT service providers for over 25 years.”

"Data-Tech is not a ‘one and done’ IT provider. Instead, they seek to create meaningful, long-lasting relationships with clients and provide them with better services, better pricing, and a better customer experience."

With Data-Tech’s 24/7/365 monitoring and technical support, clients can focus on their core business operations and trust the company to keep their systems safe and secure. Chris and his team provide a proactive approach to IT security, monitoring for any potential threats or vulnerabilities that may compromise a network infrastructure. Natural disasters, cybersecurity attacks, and other threats can strike at any time, day or night, and can have detrimental impacts on SMBs, but their clients have peace of mind knowing that Data-Tech’s team of experts are vigilant and proactively monitoring the health and security of their technology. “We offer three packages to ensure each of our clients receives support when and where they need it, including a dedicated technician working at a client site 5 days a week, 24/7/365 technical support, or server hosting in our data center.”

Access Healthcare Physicians Group, a leading healthcare provider in Florida with over 100 office locations and over 700 total users in the organization, needed to achieve additional HIPAA (Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act) security regulation compliance by implementing comprehensive reporting, as well as administrative management and alerting, throughout their wide area network. Additionally, they needed a solution that would deliver a deeper level of network protection and security services without compromising network performance. “As a result of our partnership with Data-Tech, we were able to implement a hosted SonicWall Global Management Solution that exceeded all of our expectations,” states Lex Harris, IT Director at AHC, “Not only did it meet all of our HIPAA requirements, the SonicWall solution Data-Tech proposed, presented, and implemented has made our wide area network much more productive.”

Chris is focusing on strategic growth via the development of new products and services. Some of the primary initiatives for this year include elevating their Customer Experience so clients feel like they just went to Disney World, as well as finalizing the development and deployment of “Horizons,” which will create a more interactive and comfortable way for clients to request and receive support. Chris also plans to “continue the development of our new Compliance Division so Data-Tech can assist clients with cost effective solutions to the complexities of Data Security Compliance Requirements.”IE
