We Are Intelligent IT Designs: The IT Team That Fights For YOU

Paul VillanuevaWhen Paul Villanueva was young, his enemy was a group of guys from another neighborhood in the Bronx. He developed a heightened sense of security because he knew that if he was not vigilant, alert and security-conscious, the streets would eat him alive. He’d committed to being better than the streets and so he left to build a life for himself and his family. He was a hard worker, dedicated and curious, eventually standing out amongst other employees at a textile design studio in Manhattan. Here he was introduced to technology and responsibility. He quickly excelled at using technology to make processes faster and more efficient, oftentimes lugging a cart with a desktop computer home on the subway during weekends, just to keep up with the workload.

His passion and skill with technology were evident, and he pursued an education in IT at DeVry University. After graduating with flying colors, he was promptly hired by IBM. After a few years at IBM, he worked as an assistant IT manager for a bank and then the IT director for a consumer lending company. He rose through the ranks quickly because he was used to making things work with the resources he had available; he is a creative, intelligent problem-solver and a valuable asset to his clients.

But his work in IT came with a new enemy, “cyberthugs” who were violating business owners’ systems and threatening their livelihoods. Paul’s experience with life on the streets made him uniquely able to help businesses identify weaknesses and create solutions to protect themselves. That’s why Paul founded Intelligent IT Designs in 2006 – to build a team and continue doing what he’s always been best at: providing complete protection to businesses across NYC, Dutchess County and Westchester County.

Security Is More Than A Feature: It Must Be A Foundation

CEO Bio:

Security Is A Way Of Life

Growing up in the Bronx, Paul Villanueva always harbored a heightened sense of security. He knew that if he was not constantly vigilant, alert and security-conscious, the streets could eat him alive.

Two things helped Paul survive the streets: a naturally ingrained responsibility to protect and a deeply held belief in the value of relationships. If people hadn't believed in his abilities or supported his ambitions, he may not be here today. Now, as CEO of Intelligent IT Designs, a complete IT solutions provider, Paul offers the same value to his clients: expert security strategies and relationships built on compassion, respect and a mutual desire for business growth and success.

“When I was young, the enemy was a group of guys from another neighborhood. The battlefield is now online, it is no longer the block. The enemy is no longer guys from the next block, it is cyberthugs. We are no longer fighting for our street, but now we fight to protect our clients’ systems.”
– Paul Villanueva

Paul remembers a time when someone could start a business and set up their own computer or have it set up by a family member. That is no longer the case. Networks are more complicated, security threats are more strategic and cybercriminals have access to more resources and dark networks than ever before.

That is why, in 2006, Paul built Intelligent IT Designs. Intelligent IT Designs hosts a team of 10 technology professionals and serves more than 100 clients in NYC, Westchester County, Dutchess County and across the Hudson Valley. Intelligent IT Designs is a trusted resource to clients that provides creative and secure solutions, enhances business goals, solves problems quickly, increases efficiency and provides a competitive advantage and solid foundation for growth.

Paul is a Goldman Sachs 10,000 Small Businesses graduate, #1 best-selling author and Editors Choice for #1 Best-Selling Cyber Security Book, On Thin Ice. He has been married to the love of his life for over 20 years. Together, they have three children, 17 chickens, four goats, two dogs and two cats on a 10-acre property bordering a state park in Dutchess County, New York. Paul has worked hard to build a successful business and a fulfilling life. Intelligent IT Designs is prepared to help you do the same.
