Software is hackable. But we use hardware to avoid the hackers. Plus our own combination of biometric equipment to authenticate users and their respective permissions. We are well known IT and Biometric Subject Matter Experts. 

Data Centers are under constant siege. Our solution is to place documents, data and work flow beyond the reach of intruders. We design and build both custom and standalone solutions that use information bunkers and fortresses; secure areas where information and data can be safely stored, viewed and processed. 

Our solutions are designed to prevent the next range of attacks as well as the last set of attacks. Edge Protection (Firewalls) and Source Point Protection (Anti-virus) is a security model that is very effective at protecting against hackers using standard hacking methods. That model is specifically focused on historical hacks and historical methods of attack. We completely re-think the approach to the security of information, focusing on the combined social, physical, hardware, edifice, location, human factors, firmware, database and application layers.


We are Biometric, Computer and Cellular Leaders.
