Rodney Royer, President & CEO
In his 20+ years of running LYLAB Technology Solutions, Rodney has made it a priority to stay on the bleeding edge of the newest technologies, software and cybersecurity solutions. As a result, both he and his technicians maintain multiple certifications and partnerships, including Microsoft Certified System Engineer (MCSE), Certified Information Systems Auditor (CISA), VM Ware Certified Professional, Datto Certified Advanced Technician and Microsoft Certified Partner since 2003. But his most difficult and most recent certification is the one that really sets him apart. In September of 2021, Rodney took the step to become a Certified Information Systems Security Professional, earning his CISSP certification.
Since we opened our doors back in 2001, we have focused on cybersecurity to best protect our clients’ data and their businesses. Because hackers have become more aggressive in how they attack computers and networks over the years, our training, our tools and our proprietary approach to cybersecurity have become a lot more vigilant. Our success in safeguarding our clients is a result of our layered approach to cybersecurity. By combining our superior tools, our technologies and our ongoing training, we keep cyber criminals at bay and our clients keep their data, remain productive and can sleep at night knowing their business is safe and their reputation isn’t tarnished.
Since opening the doors to his IT services firm in 2001, Rodney has built his business on a foundation of integrity, perseverance and genuine concern for his clients’ needs. In 2009, he was ready to grow his business considerably through an acquisition.
As luck would have it, the company he purchased shared Rodney’s belief system where customers are the center of the business. The company was known by the acronym LYLAB, which stands for “Love You Like A Brother."
Ever since that acquisition, they’ve been known as LYLAB Technology Solutions. Because Rodney, Mosel and their team genuinely care about their Pennsylvania community, local business owners have trusted LYLAB Technology Solutions for 10, 15 and even 20 years or more.
As the founder of LYLAB Technology Solutions, one of the most seasoned IT services providers in his Central Pennsylvania community, Rodney Royer wears his heart on his sleeve. Even the business name – LYLAB – stands for “Love You Like A Brother,” which speaks to the value Rodney places on relationships. He has been building relationships with local businesses for over 20 years.
Who else can say they’ve had over a decade’s worth of experience working on computers by the age of just 23?! Rodney’s work ethic and passion for technology started when he was only nine years old. He remembers helping his dad in their basement bring broken computers to life. Always striving for perfection, he learned the RIGHT way to disassemble and reassemble computers in the most efficient ways possible.
We SPECIALIZE In Working with Small to Medium Sized Businesses. That means we understand your incredibly hectic and stressful work schedule and WHY it is critical to remove obstacles, frustrations, and technical problems to keep you productive. We understand your desire to eliminate waste, extra steps, workarounds, and manual labor. We also have tech support available 24/7/365 since we know you do not work the normal “9-5” day and can help you maintain the freedom to work remote while making sure you meet compliance standards for data security and backups.
We Offer Cutting Edge Cybersecurity. Our president, Rodney Royer, is one of a very elite group of IT professionals in PA that hold a Certified Information Systems Security Professional (CISSP) Certification. This means that we can offer you world class cybersecurity from a truly knowledgeable point of view.
We Use Our Vendor Relationships to YOUR Advantage. Having an advanced level of partnership with key vendors (Microsoft, VMware and Datto) allows us access to special pre- and post-project assistance support levels that most “partners” do not have. We can provide the right solutions, priced right, and validated by the vendor, so if any issues come up, we can get them resolved quickly and effectively.
We Have Flexible, Tailored-To-Your-Needs Support Options to Help You Better Manage Your Environment. We provide our customers with a variety of managed support options, ranging from back-end maintenance and monitoring for issues, to user help-desk support with ticketing, to strategy and budget and asset/license life-cycle management. We have successfully provided these services for over 15 years and can create a solution specifically for you and your team.
We Are One Of A Few Elite Microsoft Office 365 Partners in the Country. They call us their “SMB Champions.” Migrating to Office 365 and other cloud solutions is NOT something you want to attempt on your own. There are dozens of ways an improper setup can cause problems, systems that do not work, lost data and e-mail, and a host of other problems – you need someone with experience in multiple environments with a variety of clients. We have that experience – from a small office with 50 employees to a full Office 365 migration for a customer with 1,000 employees, we can help.
We Eat Here, We Work Here, We Give Here! We strive to support businesses in their quests to help others. Supporting local Non-Profits and being involved with our community is a staple of LYLAB’s personality and character. Knowing and encouraging the people in our very own back yards is integral to us as a company.
We Hope to Continue Working with You for Years to Come. We have long standing relationships and commitments to multiple businesses in the area. Some going as far back as the inception of the company 20 years ago. We hope to not only work with you for just as long, but also bring you the same level of satisfaction that our other clients have found.
