SONAR® Proactive Monitoring
MCSA proactively and securely monitor your IT infrastructure giving you back the time to focus on your business needs. We work closely with our customers to ensure their infrastructure achieves maximum uptime, availability and business continuity.
SONAR® is MCSA’s monitoring solution that can be deployed seamlessly within an IT infrastructure to pro-actively monitor enterprise hardware.
SONAR® monitors your enterprise server, storage and network infrastructure 24×7. Hardware system faults are instantly alerted to our team of highly skilled UK based engineers who are your trusted advisors when things do start to go wrong.
Our monitoring solution is blended into a Hardware Support Service and monitors multivendor enterprise servers, storage and networking products for our customers. On installation this secure solution will scan the network and an auto discovery process will create all the elements required to monitor the infrastructure. Ultimately this service allows our customers to focus on more business critical tasks, leaving us to pro-actively resolve hardware faults in the background with minimal disruption to the customer.

MCSA operates a number of contracts where our engineers work on site as part of the customer’s own service delivery commitments.
Our approach to managed services is to work with the customer to understand their pain points and resolve them with service wrappers. These wrappers operate in synergy with the customer’s own processes with a view to enhancing them as we gain knowledge and experience of how the customer operates.
We aim to make the customer’s service delivery better and more efficient, leaving them to focus on managing their own business.
We operate teams varying in size from one to twelve and can cover hardware, software, project management and service desk.
