New Tech Startup Supports Cheyenne Businesses

Wyo Support Connects with CyberWyoming

CHEYENNE — When John Keesling came to Cheyenne, he saw an opportunity to enhance computer technical support services to businesses in the community.

With 21 years of information technology and business management experience, Keesling started Wyo Support in January 2021. In August, the Greater Cheyenne Chamber of Commerce welcomed Keesling’s custom technology solutions company to the community with a ribbon cutting.

“We do technology services for companies big and small,” Keesling said. “Basically, if your company is too big to do it on your own but too small to hire somebody, I fill that niche. I can also offer services as far as executive level consulting. So, if you need strategic vision on how it works with your company, I can fill in that role.”

Keesling said he moved to Wyoming to get closer to family.

“I also saw the market had a pretty good need for more full-time, professional IT customer service,” he said.

Since staring his business, Keesling said the biggest needs he’s been seeing is dedicated business hours with local support.

“There’s very few people that can do that in Cheyenne,” Keesling said, “and basically within a hundred miles.”

The biggest challenge confronting Keesling is the lack of awareness about what technology risks there are when a business is making decisions about hardware and software. He said a business may make a decision that makes sense to them, but they’re not necessarily informed decisions when it comes to cyber awareness.

Keesling said Wyo Support provides full IT managed solutions; on-site, remote and work-from-home support; training; network support and maintenance; and security and firewall solutions.

He said the Greater Cheyenne Chamber of Commerce has been great help in introducing him to the community and making connections. Those introductions including meeting CyberWyoming through Mary Jane Strickland, the Chamber’s director of partner investments.

Strickland explained CyberWyoming’s “Made Safe in Wyoming” program to him and encouraged Keesling to go through the cybersecurity assessment and enhancement review.

“She was interested in running me through the course for two reasons,” Keesling said. “One, to see if I can cut the mustard with it, and two, to get an industry professional’s perspective of running through the course.”

Keesling said the introduction to CyberWyoming is “just invaluable.”

“I now know that there’s a fantastic resource in Wyoming raising the knowledge and awareness of cybersecurity for everybody.”
