Learn a Bit About Secure Network Services

When people ask us to describe ourselves, we typically come up with the same words. We’re reliable, thorough and attentive.

But our customers tell us something more.

They tell us that they appreciate that we took the time to get to know their business and that our solutions helped them dig into all that IT has to offer. We like it when they tell us we’re honest and trustworthy and that we’re incredibly helpful.

Where we take the most pride is when clients tell us we’re not typical IT people. In other words, we know how to talk to people, not computers. We’ll take that. We strive to develop strong relationships with clients, leveraging best-of-breed solutions that ensure minimal downtime and maximum productivity.

Rob Gelsinger

Founder & CEO

In early 2003, Rob Gelsinger was a Systems Engineer and Support Manager for IBM Global Services in Tampa, Florida, and well on his way to building a career with IBM. Rob graduated from the University of Florida in 1995, and began his career with the industry leader for IT services, IBM, in November of 1998, where he achieved multiple certifications including the MCSE and various security certifications. Outside of work, Rob was married and father to a growing family. It was during this time that Rob conceived of the idea for Secure Network Services, Inc. (SNS). In August of 2003, SNS became a reality and began providing customers throughout Lakeland, Florida and the surrounding Central Florida area with IT services and support.

In his time at IBM, Rob had learned best practices to provide world-class service and support of enterprise corporations through a combination of technology and automation to achieve client goals. When he started SNS, Rob mirrored those same best practices at the small and medium-sized business level he had used to provide IBM’s clients with the same world-class experience. Over the past 18 years, Rob and the SNS team have worked to help clients not only improve their IT experience, but also improve their overall business technology strategies and performance, helping clients turn their IT into a money-making asset as opposed to a liability. In 2014, SNS began expanding its reach outside of the Central Florida area and now provides remote services to a variety of customers throughout the continental U.S.

On a personal note, Rob and his wife Sharon are now the parents of four children, two girls and two boys, and are active members of the Lakeland community where they live. Rob’s approach to SNS is that “It’s all about relationships. We consider it an honor to be our client’s trusted advisor, and we will do everything in our power to ensure we live up to that trust.” Since its inception in 2003, Secure Network Services, Inc. has become one of the premier IT Managed Service Providers in Central Florida.
