Work History & Feedback

Upgrade Mod_security and Csf on My Server Expert

“I’ve worked with other folks on oDesk in the past, but Ahmed is an exception. I have to admit Ahmed went beyond the duty call to get my projects done on time & within budget. At one time, there was a malicious Virus circulating around, he took the initiatives to apply the patch on my severs w/o wasting time to get hold of me or tried to negotiate how much it would cost me to fix it. Some folks do take advantages of these type of situations. But rather, Ahmed fixed it promptly to prevent my servers from potential attacks which could have affected all of my clients and it could have been a nightmare. I happen to be an IT person as well, and one of our daily tasks is to always be proactive in keeping the critical systems up and running 24/7. I know a great professional IT expert when I see it. Ahmed’s actions proves to me that he is not just an IT freelancer nor he is out there to harvest money, but he is a true professional IT engineer, you ask for his assistance, and rest assured it will get done in a professional manner. He exhibits great technical skills. He is very trustworthy, he answered all of my questions and he even provided me with advise and suggestions so I can make proper decisions accordingly.I am so pleased with the results indeed ! I will certainly hire Ahmed again & will refer him to other folks on my IT connections. Job Well Done Ahmed !! Thank you.”
