our philosophy

PeopleFirst is a family-owned business in Amherst, MA. We were founded on the notion that despite today’s advanced technology, people still experience too many pain points in the day to day use of our devices. From security concerns to sluggish computers, we handle a wide variety of issues with an approach that leaves our clients happy.

Instead of tech-speak, we offer a bridge between unintuitive technology — and people simply trying to get their work done. We offer long term, time-saving solutions instead of a patchwork of work-arounds.

Big hacks, including ransomware, make headlines routinely and over 90% start with a phishing email. Thus, a prime area of our security consulting is addressing social engineering vulnerabilities.

A people-based perspective understands that in an online world, productivity, security, and privacy are key drivers of a positive work-life balance. PeopleFirst is about helping our clients make the right choices to achieve their goals. More about us…
