What makes us different?


Electric Spider is different to many other IT support companies. Our clients get access to years of commercial and enterprise experience.

One of our fundamental company values is that we don’t use product sales targets – it can lead to selling boxes that may not be the best solution. If we were sales target driven, we would be abandoning our philosophy of client concentric solutions by making them our number one priority.

The knowledge that clients are well protected from cyber-criminal activity and get the best use of their IT is critical to us. Our managed services save time for our clients by dealing with time-consuming activity such as software updates and checking the performance of each device.

We have experience and knowledge to support clients who use any operating system platform and develop the correct security levels for each system.

We are confident with our knowledge and experience and provide excellent service to our clients. Their success is our success.

It doesn’t matter what the operating system of any of your devices happens to be, we have been working with all of the well-known platforms for many years and our specialists know what makes them tick.


Traditionally thought of as a secure operating system but its increase in popularity is attracting the attention of cyber criminals .

Linux Systems

The least common operating system on our desktop computers but the various versions dominate the server market in the Internet world.

Microsoft Windows

There is not much more we can say about it’s presence although it continues to present a number of security flaws which are regularly patched by Microsoft.
