Largest New Orleans IT Company built on service, growing with cybersecurity expertise
NEW ORLEANS, LA (August 5, 2020) – New Orleans IT company Bellwether Technology will mark its 40th anniversary of exceptional IT service to the Gulf South on August 1st. Delivering IT support services to over 100 businesses and organizations in Louisiana and beyond, Bellwether’s team of 60+ professionals with over 400 years of combined IT experience enables their clients to excel by expertly applying and managing technology.
Founded August 1, 1980, Bellwether has remained a constant leader in the New Orleans IT services market. An early adopter of managed services in 2005, Bellwether now embraces digital transformation and cloud computing with a strong focus on cybersecurity to keep pace with the ever-shifting technological frontier.
An IT company with deep expertise in areas such as service desk, cyber defense, .Net development, and cloud management, Bellwether implements solutions that help clients reduce costs, mitigate risks, and enhance productivity. As a whole, Bellwether’s comprehensive offering delivers a fully capable, enterprise IT department to dozens of prominent New Orleans businesses.
Most recently, as businesses adjusted operations due to COVID-19, Bellwether enabled over 1,000 people in the New Orleans area to work from home in a few short weeks. While the change in work habits and further blurring of the lines between corporate networks and the public Internet can quickly lead to an increased threat of cyberattacks, Bellwether was prepared for such events and ensured that new capabilities came with appropriate protections.
“We started Bellwether in New Orleans after recognizing that the personal computer was going to play a major role in our lives and businesses. Although we were right about that, we never could have foreseen just how revolutionary it would, in fact, become“ Founder and Chairman Poco Sloss said. “As a native New Orleanian, it has been particularly gratifying to me to have supplied and supported technology for so many local clients over the past 40 years. I look forward to another 40 years of success for both Bellwether and our city.”
In celebration of this milestone, Bellwether Technology also modernized its brand identity to fully capture the meaning and essence of the company. The new visual identity reflects the Managed Services Provider’s leadership in the regional information technology landscape, as well as the strength it has built over four decades.
“As Bellwether continues to evolve, I am more excited than ever about our prospects for using technology to bring meaningful benefits to our clients,” added President Steven Ellis. “My optimism and enthusiasm stem not just from technological advances like cloud computing and zero trust networking, which are meaningful and important, but primarily from my confidence in the ability of our employees to make technology work. The Bellwether team is an outstanding group of people to work with, and I could not be more appreciative for everything they do to make us all successful.”
