The First Column IT Difference

There’s plenty of managed service providers and MSSP teams in the greater DMV area, but none like First Column IT. We approach technology with three key things in mind:

1. Modern Threats Require Modern Solutions

We don’t sell pre-baked, outdated solutions for the sake of profit. Our team expertly crafts individualized solutions that utilize the best of today’s products and zero trust security features. This frees up our time to focus on delivering strategic technology and insights to your team.

2. Great Technology Will Grow with You

If someone is selling you the solution you need today, they’re not building the IT infrastructure you’ll need for tomorrow. First Column looks at where you are currently and builds the architecture you need to get to the next stage of your company’s growth.

3. True Partnership Requires Genuine Connection

We care about our clients and want you to feel comfortable calling us with your needs – big or small – 24/7. Our positivity and passion extend into our everyday lives and allows us to create long-term partnerships versus one-time transactions.

Better Service, Better Solutions

Running a successful firm in the nation’s capital requires little (or no) IT downtime. First Column IT has provided this along with an incredible response whenever we have any IT issues. While there are several talented IT providers, First Column’s spirit, diligence, and responsiveness separate the adequate from exceptional. They really care about their clients, and this shows through their work.
