These days, we search for nearly everything on the Web. Sure, you could pound the pavement or grab a phone book to look for an IT company, but why would you pick a slower method of search than the Internet? When searching for IT services companies on the web, then, chances are good you’ll find us.

How About Subscription-Based IT Services Companies in Michiana?

It’s all about collaboration and giving you as much control over your scalable IT options as possible.

By having an outsourced team of IT professionals from Blue Star on call managing your technology, and monitoring your systems for problems 24/7, your business can experience flawless IT capability with maximum uptime and accessibility.

It means more efficiency and more productivity.

We deliver the ultimate maintenance, monitoring, and alerting service for growing companies who want to keep their tech-powered edge.

Want a worry-free, outsourced IT management solution?

And, better yet – you pay us to succeed, instead of paying the repeat call-out cycle IT services companies to scramble to fix your systems when they’re down.

What are you waiting for?

Case in point on the “web availability” factor: When we asked one of our clients how she found us (what search terms did she use, what about our website appealed to her, etc.), she had this to say:

How Our South Bend Technology Security is a Must for Businesses

With cybercrime growing at an exponential rate, small and mid-sized businesses need to be on guard more than ever. What’s that, you say? Small businesses don’t have anything hackers would be interested in? Do they target businesses like PayPal, Experian, or Equifax?


You need our technology security in South Bend even more so than the big outfits because SMBs are being increasingly targeted in favor of large enterprises, which are perceived by black-hat hackers as being too much trouble.

That’s right – it’s the little guys without proper technology security monitoring that the cyber-opportunists are now going after.

Have you seen the statistics on cybersecurity and cyberattacks lately? Or, are you avoiding it, like looking away from a train wreck? It’s somewhat understandable…

But, did you know that:

  • 43% of cyberattacks in 2015 targeted small businesses?
  • 44% of small businesses in a 2014 survey conducted by the National Small Business Assoc. reported being the victim of a cyberattack?
  • The average cost of those attacks was $9,000 per attack?
  • In 2016, 80% of U.S. companies suffered some kind of cyberattack – 47% of those being ransomware?
  • Roughly half of U.S. small- to mid-sized businesses don’t have a contingency plan outlining procedures to deal with data breaches?

Juniper Research estimates that cybercrime will cost businesses around $2.1 trillion USD globally by 2019. This is an increase of nearly four times the cost of cyber breaches in 2015!

The reality is that most smaller companies just aren’t properly prepared to deal with security threats and adversities, often due to inadequate resources and interest. This is yet another reason that smaller businesses are a prime target for cybercrime.

Need More High-Performance Cloud Services from Your IT Services Company?

Here’s one aspect of our IT services companies in Indiana and Michigan would do well to opt-in for. Blue Star gives your business the same competitive leverage used by the larger players in your space.

If your business is taking credit card and debit card payments, advertising on social media, or doing online banking you’re already using the cloud – but only a small part of it. (Not to mention you need PCI-DSS compliance assurance as well.)

The cloud is the way that the smart businesses of today access IT resources and services.

Imagine being able to:

  • Get the applications you need and set them up in minutes;
  • Delivering projects faster on a global scale;
  • Grow without the long-term commitment of purchasing infrastructure.

Why pay for more than you use? Why buy expensive, in-house IT assets when you can leverage cloud assets and avoid the capital investment? Move your IT into the operating expenditure column and leave capital expenditure budgets for your larger goals with Blue Star Complete Cloud!

Our Complete Cloud solutions offer you:

  • A 99.99% uptime guarantee;
  • The option of provisioning a virtual machine in less than 30 minutes;
  • High-performance cloud servers;
  • Hybrid cloud and private cloud options;
  • Data backup and disaster recovery;
  • Cloud-Based VoIP business phone systems;
  • Cloud-based, virtual computers and servers – Hardware as a Service (HaaS);
  • Cloud-based, virtual computing platforms – Platform as a Service (PaaS).
