Wilmington Health reached out to us for strategic direction on their storage, backup, archive, disaster recovery, and business continuity. We engaged our Virtual CIO (vCIO) service, and we delivered for all of their locations across the region
Manuel W. Lloyd has acted in a vCIO capacity for Wilmington Health for several months and has provided invaluable leadership and strategic direction for us.
His company helped perform some heavy lifting on high-level initiatives including storage, backup, archive, disaster recovery, and business continuity.
They are adept and up-to-date with new technologies but can balance excellent communication and negotiation skills with stakeholders and vendors.
For this, they have been a very valuable asset to me, the IT Manager, and Wilmington Health overall. But what sets Manny apart is his energy and enthusiasm.
I'd swear they never sleep and are always there when needed. They are able to throttle their output up or down, depending on the needs of you the customer.
And it's rare to find a company with those characteristics that also has a great and congenial mentality.
CyberSleuth® is doing some excellent work for us, and I'm excited to continue working with them on future projects and initiatives”
