Friday, March 7th, 2014

Wavecrest Computing is the recognized leader in the Web security and Web-use forensic markets. We directly address our clients’ needs with over 17 years of experience developing and supporting Web Security and forensic solutions. We believe delivering the highest quality product at the industry’s most competitive pricing is fundamental to our success. Wavecrest is also proud to provide the best in-house, U.S. based technical support in the industry. Our customers know that they will receive courteous, personalized attention when they speak with our knowledgeable and skilled personnel. We are committed to making sure each and every customer has a successful experience using our products.

A long-standing customer, Karleen Carlson of Van Diest Supply Company, agrees. “When I seek out a company to provide a product or service, I want it all — a great product, a great price, a salesperson that is responsive and treats me like I am their only customer, and technical support that is intelligent, easy to access, and easy to understand. Wavecrest meets all of these criteria. We have used Cyfin, CyBlock ISA, CyBlock Software and CyBlock Cloud. Each of these products met our needs at a fraction of the cost of what the competitors are offering. Any pre-sales questions we had were answered promptly, and the Wavecrest technical support ranks in the top 5% of all technical support I have worked with in 29 years of being in IT.”

We know you will end up agreeing as well that ‘The Wavecrest Way’ is the right way.
