Who We Are

Welcome to Atruent

At Atruent, our focus is on a 360° view of information technology...a full managed IT service company. We make it a point to understand your business and its operations structure and processes and tailor our services and support to match your business’ needs. Atruent is a managed networks service company and from the network to the computer, software to hardware, virtual desktop to global issues and the increasing security threats that SMBs currently faces, our relationship with you is based on local, efficient, and effective service, keeping your enterprise running smoothly, secure and with as little incident as possible.


Aida Keehner grew up in France before moving to Tunisia in North Africa. In 2000, she moved to the United States. Her career in IT started by building wonderful relationships with clients (some of which are still with her today!), either onsite or over the phone. The natural evolution for Mrs. Keehner was to form Atruent (formerly About Computing and Consulting) in 2009, building the company on a solid reputation and a passion for IT. She surrounds herself with a seasoned and professional team, continuing to work diligently toward keeping trust with and optimizing technology for each client.

Our Story

A privately owned company, Atruent has more than 20 years of experience in information technology. Based outside of Baltimore, we pride ourselves on providing trusted and reliable local service in an effort to bolster your company’s efforts. Behind each computer screen is a person, and it’s because of this we still put value in face-to-face relationships, a personal touch, and connecting with our clients.

We chose the motto, “True Enterprise Level Solutions,” because it speaks to the conviction and consistency we instill in each job. Monday through Friday, from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m., we guarantee no more than an hour response time. After-hours and weekends, we’re always on-call and a phone call or email away, whatever time zone you may be in. Let us focus on your IT needs so you can focus on your business.


Our mission is to provide clients with the support they need to manage and maintain their business, all the while creating lasting relationships based on trust and honesty.
