My name is Nick Arfaras, owner of SEC4PC, where ”Solving Every Computer Issue” is the motto and where providing “Security 4 Your PC” is the result.
In 1992 I built my first PC, a 486sx Computer with 8MB of Ram and a 66 Mghz Processor. Over the past 20 years I have physically built over 1,000 PC’s and can trouble shoot and resolve almost any PC issue. This same service from SEC4PC can be applied to your home or business, wired or wireless network. A streamed lined, worry free, customized solution is what I do. If you are a small business of 10 or less computer users, I can lock down your network and your PC’s to any Scale you find necessary. Many of my clients over the years had slowness issues with their new PC’s, as well as continued virus issues, prior to contacting me. Immediately I locked down their systems, showed them how and why they got infected in the first place, and got their systems back working at peak performance; saving many users from having to purchase a new PC or, worse, losing their precious data. Recovering hard drive data, such as years of family photos, from damaged drives and operating systems that were completely crippled has been a forte of mine. These are just some of the reasons why “Security 4 your PC” can help you.
SEC4PC was developed from 20 years of experience in the computer field. Having worked in the corporate world and also servicing many executive’s homes in lower Fairfield County, I have come to realize that the majority of issues stemmed from a poor initial setup. The obstacles many of my home clients faced could have, and should have, been averted had the original setup technician considered some basic protocols. These same protocols I have learned and implemented after years in various IT environments.
In 1992, I started my career working for an Environmental Remediation Firm as a soils chemist. This job required me to run a Gas Chromatograph and network it with a windows 3. 1x PC. This process helped me to develop troubleshooting skills that would become invaluable a couple years later when I switched careers and started working on computers and business networks full time.
In 1998, after an intensive course on General HW and Networking troubleshooting Skills with Valcom Computers, I began to grow an extensive background in the corporate world. Through Valcom I was able to work on major platform and architectural migrations such as Token Ring networks to 10baseT networks and Novell to Microsoft NT 4. 0 server solutions at well- known corporations including Rayovac, CUNA Mutual and Alliant Energy. I built PC’s and servers for industry leaders such as Digital Equipment, HP, Compaq and IBM. While working for GE in the financial services division, I provided client support and was instrumental in preparing the business for Y2K. A mainstay on the UBS trading floor for more than seven years, I was hired specifically to help migrate the Paine Weber infrastructure with the UBS infrastructure. At the completion of that project I became a leading tech on the trading floor at UBS, at the time the largest trading floor in the world. Performing hardware, software and networking troubleshooting in order to repair issues on the fly in a very high demand atmosphere. If a PC did not work it needed to be fixed asap, otherwise that trader could lose money. I and the team I worked with were expected to resolve issues within 15 minutes. With more than 1500 PC’s on that floor, on any given day, any of a host of issues would arise. From damaged hard drives, to overheated video cards, failed Ram, flaky network connections, software glitches etc. etc. But as stressful as this job could be, my colleagues and I found this to be fun and exhilarating. In addition to my day to day duties at UBS I also setup small remote offices for conferences and board meetings in places like Cape Cod, Georgia, Santa Barbara, Manhattan and Switzerland.
In my off hours I had the opportunity to setup and configure many wired and WIFI networks in large, medium and small homes throughout lower Fairfield County. Many of the traders that saw me resolve their business computer issues wanted me to fix their home PC’s and flaky wireless issues throughout the home. This is how I started working extensively on small and large scale home networking and computer projects. In the past 4 years I worked exclusively with small business of 5- 25 people in a venture that was started at the beginning of the financial meltdown in 2008. I was instrumental in making that business successful in lower Fairfield County and decided to start a new venture bringing that expertise to SEC4PC.
