What do you see as your advantages?
We see ourselves having several advantages. The first is of course our people. Our company is made up of many of the "who's who" of security implementation and design. Second, we understand that security is not about throwing money at a problem, it is a three-way balance of cost against risk against usability. And lastly we are not standing on our past successes. Security is a moving target and we are always running the technology footrace to keep up.
Who are your typical clients?
Our clients tend to fall into three categories. The first category is the organization which is either looking to build security technologies or to deploy that technology. These tend to be organizations that are developing the technologies of the future and lack the expertise or engineering to complete that vision. They come to us to get that development moved from paper to prototype or production. The second type of organization is one that has come to realize that security is no longer an acceptable afterthought. These are the companies that are looking to improve their own security or mitigate the risk in the case of an incident or more importantly develop a strategy to bring security into the mindset of the people, processes and places of their business. The final type of client is organizations that tend to think on the far ends of the security scale. These clients are interested in protecting themselves to the utmost degree and are interested in making sure that no one (internal or external) can get past any barriers. They also tend to be the clients most interested in knowing the tools and techniques of security penetration to make sure they are insulated against those threats.
