Supplier Spotlight AISN

SWaM Supplier Spotlight: AIS Network

Founded in 1993, Richmond-based AIS Network has been a trusted partner of Virginia ABC since 2017, providing critical hybrid cloud infrastructure and support services. AISN played a vital role in the recent agencywide IT transformation that impacted every employee and customer and culminated in empowering Virginia ABC staff to assume more direct control over their infrastructure, lower their costs, and support rapid change.

As a SWaM-certified Commonwealth of Virginia eGov provider since 2012, AISN has multiple state contracts and is the leading private sector expert on Commonwealth of Virginia IT governance, policies, protocols, and infrastructure. Its highly experienced Active Directory team serves more than 62,000 Commonwealth of Virginia employees and contractors daily. After working with Virginia agencies and authorities on hundreds of assignments over the years, AISN’s team has developed a unique “brain trust” based on its in-depth knowledge of state agencies and their specialized IT and cybersecurity needs. This extensive experience reassures our clients of the quality of service they can expect from AISN. AISN supports numerous private sector businesses and other government entities. Their longest-serving commercial customer, The True Value Company, is a well-known hardware retailer that has been an AISN customer for 23 years.
