Founded in 1998, the company initially provided radio-based communication infrastructure to emergency services, a field that requires mission-critical "always on" communication capabilities. As a result of this service the company developed the most extensively available privately owned Wireless network in KwaZulu Natal.
The expansion of the company into an Internet Service Provider that carried over the philosophy of “always on” connectivity to the provision of highly reliable Internet connectivity was a logical step forward. At present Webstorm is a Second Tier Internet Service Provider and is one of a select group of ISP’s to have been awarded an ICASA iECS as well as iECNS License.This means that the company is considered to be sufficiently excellent, both in terms of cutting edge technology and service/support provision to provide services above and beyond the norm in a reliable fashion. Webstorm provides support to numerous third tier ISP’s and is acknowledged to be a technological leader in it’s field.
However, unlike the vast majority of our competitors Webstorm delivers connectivity across the full range of spectra – analog and digital telecommunications, wireless ground wave and satellite. This means that we can design and support a solution that is customized to the specific needs of the client that we are dealing with, and we can provide that solution in a cost-effective manner with experienced support staff. Webstorm is one of the very few ISP’s in Southern Africa that can honestly lay claim to being able to provide clients with an integrated, secure "ubiquitous" computing solution that will seamlessly integrate their entire operation in terms of data management and control.
The company also engages in web based software development and website designing. Numerous business web based applications have been developed to clients specifications. These include multi dimensional software capable of running and automating complex business models.
A world class IDC ( Internet Data Centre ) equipped with multiple Fibre Optic and other redundancy links is located at our head office in Kloof ( Durban ). Here we offer clients the opportunity to host servers in a secure environment at affordable rates.
Webstorm is a preferred service provider to organizations that require extremely reliable and secure Internet connectivity for amongst other services; secure banking, real-time video surveillance, the provision of Virtual Private Networks to Corporate clients and ecologically friendly wireless networks for golfing estates and other luxury community developments. Webstorm is a national service provider which means that we can provide networks for clients that have branches that are geographically divergent.
The breadth of services across various media and platforms, combined with a highly skilled team of developers and technicians has enabled Webstorm to provide customized multi spectrum solutions to our client base. These solutions have become an important ingredient in their product offering, providing them with a sustainable competitive advantage in their market segments. It is this resolve to go the extra mile in addition to having the skills available to do it that is the main reason that Webstorm, with hardly any above the line advertising, has achieved consistent growth via word of mouth referral.
