Security + Compliance = Gen Z
It's simple. Our cloud-first DNA helps take you to a whole new level as you bring security and compliance together (think peanut butter and chocolate!). With great success, your organization gets time back on your side, which is where your true wealth really lies. After all, you can always make more money, but you can never really make more time. And our services are specifically designed to bring you that exponential value in days, rather than months or even years.
Unlike other firms out there, we are not all over the place. We are the experts in cloud security and that’s what we set out do better than anyone else.

Based in Atlanta as a veteran-owned organization and with the experience of top Fortune information security leadership, we are recognized experts who always focus on customer value as the only acceptable outcome.

From the “Top 10 Signs Your Network and Security Design Might Be Far Behind” Series Setting your CFO (or equivalent for those privately held companies) is perhaps the #1 thing we can do to set everyone up for success. Even if it’s not an absolute #1, few can argue it’s not high enough up on the[…]
From the “Top 10 Signs Your Network and Security Design Might Be Far Behind” Series Completely Satisfied With What I Built (said no engineer ever) Chances are, you didn’t build the network that you oversee now.

From the “Top 10 Signs Your Network and Security Design Might Be Far Behind” Series Several years ago I had a large security appliance vendor do a big presentation for me and our larger team about their cloud offering.

From the “Top 10 Signs Your Network and Security Design Might Be Far Behind” Series I think we have all been there. We are sitting at our desk trying to get work done and the network just won’t keep up with us. Maybe it’s those recurring training videos that we have to watch or some O365[…]
From the “Top 10 Signs Your Network and Security Design Might Be Far Behind” Series By absolutely all accounts, well over half of all Internet web traffic is encrypted.

From the “Top 10 Signs Your Network and Security Design Might Be Far Behind” Series It’s kind of crazy when you think about it.

From the “Top 10 Signs Your Network and Security Design Might Be Far Behind” Series It’s pretty safe to say that those old Visio drawings need more than a little design refresh.

One year from yesterday, can you tell a truly transformational security story? The success stories of organizations from the extremely large to the quite small who have created transformational stories are everywhere. To be clear, simply implementing a new security appliance or software tool is not even in the ballpark. Rather, these organizations have taken truly[…]
If you believe that 80% of success is showing up (says Woody Allen), then how do you solve for the remainder? Right now, with each passing microsecond, there are organizations all over the world who are failing at embarrassing levels.

You bet I did! Way, way back in the 1980s there was a brilliant commercial series by Reese’s about peanut butter mixing with chocolate. Apparently before that time no one knew that the two went together quite well. Unfortunately, many businesses today can’t quite make the connection between security and compliance, where so much is spent[…]
Is SSL inspection part of your individual performance plan? If you take a good look at the ZecurityAscent web site, you will notice that we use SSL…and only SSL. No straight HTTP (unencrypted) traffic, but rather only encrypted communication. This is both good news and bad news. Good news because: It shows that we are dedicated[…]
