How Can We Help You?

We're in this together

SentryOne Support

Our on-site customer support team uses a collaborative model—not a tiered system—so you don't have to restate your issue multiple times to different technicians in order to arrive at a resolution of the even the most complex problem. This collaborative approach, where everyone on the team has a hand in supporting you, has earned SentryOne a 100% customer satisfaction rating. Almost half of support issues are resolved within the hour and our complete Knowledge Base is open to all SentryOne customers.
