By October 18, 2017People Tech

Affant is celebrating it’s 20 year Anniversary! For 20 years we have dedicated ourselves to the security and uptime of your business’ infrastructure.

20 years ago | 1997 Netscape Internet Browsing / Affant was born!

Remember AOL disks? In 1997, Netscape Navigator was the web browser of choice. The free Internet Explorer browser became the ultimate fall of Netscape who rescinded their 1994 promise that Internet software would be distributed for free. Additionally, and most importantly, (at least to us) Affant was born!

While our look has changed, and the tech has evolved, our promise stays the same – we give you peace of mind that we will be here to keep your tailored solutions up, running, and secure as the years go by. Got questions about security? Contact us here. At Affant, we thank you for allowing us two decades in a fast paced industry. We hope to be here 20 years from now, to welcome our robot overlords.
