Located on the San Francisco Peninsula, Palo Alto PC serves clients from Sacramento to Hawaii.  For the past thirty years, we have been helping companies with their IT and system needs.

Low cost PC’s have enabled offices to set-up networked workstations that can share files and printers, access the Web and have multiple email accounts, enabling capabilities and efficiencies that used to be available only in large corporate settings.

All too often, however, these systems are setup in an ad-hoc manner, usually on an urgent basis with a tech-savvy friend. This may work fine for the short term, but as time goes by, there may be a virus attack, or system slow downs due to Spyware, or perhaps a disk crash and data needs to be recovered.

At Palo Alto PC, we have adopted the “best practices” used in large corporate environments to small/mid-size business. We have a set of procedures we follow to setup PC’s and networks based on industry standards. We can come in, evaluate your systems and can give you a scorecard (or grade) with what we find.  This is the starting point for creating a secure, stable system for your company.

Palo Alto PC’s staff is aware of the growing need to provide web development services that cover a range of needs: quick content changes, simple layout updates, to site redesign.  We realizes your business web site is more than just a place for information, but that it can be an effective and economical marketing tool for small businesses.

WannaCry RansomeWare

The reason why the current Wannacry ransomeware didn’t affect the US? Someone hit the “kill” switch. However, new variants will be coming out…so make sure your latest Microsoft patches are installed! https://www.theguardian.com/technology/2017/may/13/accidental-hero-finds-kill-switch-to-stop-spread-of-ransomware-cyber-attack
