Saalex Information Technology (SaalexIT), a division of Saalex Corporation, is undertaking a rebranding that better reflects the services we provide. As of August 1, 2020, we are changing the SaalexIT name to Valeo Networks to establish a more distinct and recognizable national brand.
The Valeo Networks brand and processes will be adopted across Saalex’s IT division. It will reflect a nationwide team to better support our customers, and will be able to provide expanded services, resources, and national capabilities.
The brand change, inclusive of a new website, is part of an initiative to differentiate Saalex Corp.’s IT division from the Federal division, Saalex Solutions, which focuses on our federal customer base. The redesigned website features a clean look and intuitive navigation, along with a host of information and resources.
Our vision for the IT division is to continue to grow into a nationally recognized brand with regional expansions that can meet the changing information technology needs of organizations across the United States. We want to become known for providing cutting edge technology integrations, unmatched technology expertise, and exceptional customer service to our clients.
“The rebranding of the IT division marks an exciting strategy shift towards becoming a national Managed Security Service Provider (MSSP). Our new branding reflects our increased commitment to our customers and our continuous pursuit to grow our services and expertise.” —Travis Mack, President and CEO of Saalex Corp.
Why did SaalexIT change its name?
To establish a more distinct and recognizable national brand, SaalexIT has decided to adopt the name and branding of the recent acquisition, Valeo Networks. The word “valeo” in Latin means to have strength, have power, and be effective. With full-service, nationwide MSSP and IT solutions, the Valeo Networks name and branding will better reflect the robust, efficient services that are offered. The name change will also signify differentiation from Saalex Corp.’s Federal division, Saalex Solutions.
Has SaalexIT been acquired?
No, SaalexIT remains a division under the parent company, Saalex Corp., which acquired the Scottsdale, Arizona-based company Valeo Networks in April 2020. SaalexIT will only be changing its name and branding to Valeo Networks.
Did this change affect the corporate structure?
No, Saalex Corp. remains the parent company of two operating divisions, each of which serve a distinct customer base.
Saalex Solutions, the Federal services division, provides core competencies in the areas of test range operations and management, engineering and logistics services, data analytics, cybersecurity, and IT services. Saalex Solutions provides services for the Department of Defense, Navy, NASA, and other government entities.
The commercial Information Technology division, Valeo Networks (previously SaalexIT), provides solutions in the areas of cybersecurity, compliance, cloud, network infrastructure, and managed IT services. Valeo Networks serves State, County, Municipal (SCM) markets, along with commercial/small-to-medium businesses (SMBs) and non-profit organizations.
How does this change impact customers?
By merging SaalexIT with Valeo Networks (plus recent acquisitions), we are now firmly rooted in the top 10% of revenue generating MSSPs nationwide and provide our clients with depth and breadth of resources, services, and support that the industry needs in this high-risk environment. In addition, we are now able to provide an expanded and upgraded Managed Services automation platform which will allow us to become more efficient, provide better tracking, increase SLA reporting, and enhance the overall customer experience, along with a host of other new products.
Will all your promotional materials change?
We will be updating all our promotional materials over a period of several months to reflect the new brand identity. In the interim, you may see an overlap between our former name/logo (SaalexIT) and the assumed name/logo (Valeo Networks).
Will your resources and content change?
We will be reviewing all resources and content to ensure they are up-to-date and accurate. The SaalexIT and Valeo blog posts will be combined under the Blog page on the new website.
What is the new contact and website information?
The previous SaalexIT website will display a message and then automatically redirect to the newly redesigned, user-friendly Valeo website. The company’s primary URL will be www.valeonetworks.com. With additional locations being added nationwide, you will be able to view your local Managed Security Services Provider (MSSP) and contact information from the corporate website.
