ATLANTA, Apr 12, 2010 (BUSINESS WIRE) -- Data security is critical toAtlanta-based Police Central, a supplier of law enforcement imaging software. In fact, security was the biggest factor for the company's selection of Cbeyond, (www.cbeyond.net/smb) a leading provider of voice, broadband, mobile and IT applications to small businesses. Since that 2001 selection, Police Central has been able to concentrate on what it does best - bringing automation to otherwise manual law enforcement tasks. As the company has grown, Cbeyond has been there to provide the IT and communications solutions required to build the business into a premier provider of law enforcement software.
Police Central started in 1995 as a software provider to Georgia's Savannah Police Department and the Chatham County Office of the Sheriff. Today the company markets, sells and installs its Web-based technology to police departments, sheriffs and corrections organizations throughout the U.S. The software enables customers to integrate their agencies' data, searching and reporting functions into a single Windows-based environment.
"As a software company serving the law enforcement community, we realize the importance of secure connectivity," said Bruce Taylor, president and COO of Police Central. "Our developer and support teams regularly work remotely and Cbeyond's Secure VPN provides the secure connectivity that we need to safely move information from our developer and support staffs' homes to remote systems into the office."
In order to protect the company's valuable data, Police Central uses Cbeyond Secure BackUp, which backs up important files quickly and easily and safeguards data files in the event of an unexpected computer crash. With Cbeyond's complete suite of security services, Police Central has a comprehensive, yet easy-to-use solution to ensure the company's data is safe from electronic theft, fraud, viruses and man-made or natural disasters.
Police Central manages all of its solutions via CbeyondOnline - a feature which saves Taylor a significant amount of time. "We look at Cbeyond as our outsourced IT shop because they are there when we need them and provide us with the IT tools to help us grow," said Taylor.
Not only does Police Central rely on Cbeyond to protect valuable data, but the company also counts on Cbeyond to host Police Central's website. "When we began to grow we knew we needed to create a website to market our services online; with Cbeyond's easy do-it-yourself Web Hosting solution, we were able to begin communicating with target customers quickly and easily in a professional and compelling manner," said Taylor.
In the nine years since Taylor selected Cbeyond as his communications partner of choice, Police Central has relocated twice to accommodate growth. With each move, Police Central decided to remain with Cbeyond. "The choice to stick with Cbeyond during our moves has been an easy decision," said Taylor. "Cbeyond is reliable - not only in the services it provides, but the entire account team we work with is responsive and knowledgeable of our needs. In fact, Cbeyond has helped propel our growth."
"Police Central's decision to be a long-term customer as they've moved from location to location speaks to Cbeyond's ability to provide the secure IT and communications services small businesses need," said Steve Zimba, vice president of marketing for Cbeyond. "We are pleased to have been able to support Police Central over the years and it is exciting to see them use our cloud-based services to help meet the needs of their rapidly growing business."
