Fast, friendly and highly responsive outsourced IT services
Do you want to turn technology into a powerful tool that can move your business forward instead of a problem that costs you time and money?
We can help!
Our clients typically have under 50 workstations, and rely on their computers, network, and Internet for daily operations. Most of our clients have a specialized line of business application they use to run their business and rely heavily on that software being operational. They represent a broad cross-section of industries and are located in York and Seward, though we can support any business in any location, thanks to the internet!

We're Always Available
Part of what makes our managed services so exceptional is that we are always available, regardless of time or holiday.
Virtual Gurus almost exclusively uses MikroTik devices and RouterOS/SwOS for all routing and VPN needs. If you have a MikroTik and don’t know how to manage it, we’d love to help you. If you don’t have one, you should give it a shot! They’re some of the most affordable, yet most capable devices available, and run everything from enterprise data centers to small home wifi networks.
Even if you have someone you’re happy with managing your network today, you can have us on stand-by to back them up in the case they become unavailable for any reason.
Benefits you can expect:
Faster WiFi and Internet
Sometimes we neglect to mention this most important feature – the internet just works better with MikroTik. We get all distracted by all the cool crazy things we can do and forget this most important part!
Each device on your network is capable of using ALL of your internet. Does your current router care? Do you care? If your computer is the one with all the speed, then you probably don’t. What if your employees or spouse or children are the ones using it all? Do you have a different opinion when thinking of it from that perspective? By simply doing some optimization of how fast each device on your network can go, every other device works better. Think for a moment what would happen if multiple people start an internet speed test at the same time. Are they both going to see all of your speed capacity, or is each going to get half of it? Now you’re thinking. Contact us to put a solution in place to make your network work better!
Peace of Mind
Disasters happen, but our customer’s routers, access points, switches, etc, are all backed up daily in our private data center. If you need to have a new device installed to replace one that failed, we have you covered.
Network security should be a number one priority for businesses. With ransomware, hacks, attacks, vulnerabilities and data theft affecting companies all around the world on a daily basis, it’s just a matter of time before your business is hit. Virtual Impressions’ goal is to provide you with the best network security protection possible, while also keeping your unique needs and budget in mind.
Network security covers:
Hacks & Attacks
These days hackers, attackers, and even automated web bots are all trying to gain access to your network and ultimately access your private customer and business information. When successful, the attackers can lock down your data or worse they can release your customer information to the world.
With the sheer number of security threats faced by companies, it is important to evaluate the vulnerabilities that may affect your business. Lost revenues due to downtime or large fines due to data breaches may not be an option and could affect the overall health of your organization.
Not only is it necessary to protect a network from outside threats but internal threats can also be a huge vulnerability. Part of a thorough network security plan is ensuring that employees are using best practices and are educated on their role in keeping the network safe.
If you store customer data, private information, or take credit cards, network security is no longer an option, but instead is a necessity. Not to mention if you must adhere to HIPAA, SOC, or any other regulations, you need a team that understands these requirements and a team that can provide the pieces necessary to keep you compliant.
How We Can Help
Protecting your information and your customers’ data is Virtual Impressions’ specialty.
- Evaluate – We can evaluate your current network business environment.
- Assess – We will provide a complete assessment of your overall security health.
- Implement – Implement a complete security plan to provide a comprehensive security solution.

They make complicated matters understandable, even to a layperson like me. They always go above and beyond to listen to us, understand our needs, and craft cost-effective and workable solutions.
Virtual Gurus is able to handle all of my technical needs, so I don’t have to worry about who to call when I have problems. They offer very professional and timely service any time I’m caught in a fix! I know Virtual Gurus will keep my systems updated and will only upgrade equipment when it’s needed, spending my money like it’s their own. Above all it’s so nice to work with the honesty and loyal service they provide.
Dave is a very friendly guy and is a straight shooter. We know he doesn’t try selling us things we don’t need, so when he says it’s time to make a purchase, it’s an easy decision to listen to his advice and get it done, especially since he is our shopper and finds the best equipment at the lowest prices. When we have an issue, it’s great that Dave can log in remotely and help us. We don’t have to wait for a technician to show up.
Working with Virtual Gurus allows us to avoid hiring a full time IT person which would cost us a fortune. We have worked with Virtual Gurus for over 15 years and had very few problems. If you need someone to take care of your technology, I’d tell you to definitely give Virtual Gurus a try.
