Rachel Lewis
Supervisor, Uptime Team
Employed with Bensinger Consulting since 2011

Rachel supervises our Uptime Team. Our clients count on us to proactively manage their networks, both in the cloud and on-premises.
This makes things like patch management for servers and workstations, ongoing network checks (e.g. hard drive space, performance, etc.), and the daily monitoring of backups and anti-virus a critical part of what we do.

It is the responsibility of our Uptime Team to identify issues and address them BEFORE they become problems, rather than putting out fires.

Her specialties include:

  • Patch management for servers and workstations
