When it comes to Cloud Security, “finding and hiring the right team that can execute on the company vision and make the right technology decisions” (Jason Geis) can be one of the biggest challenges facing company decision-makers, as well as "managing the exploding data, hiring talent, and enabling innovation while protecting your business" (David Hatfield).

That’s why we’ve partnered with Lacework, who according to the CEO David Hatfield "was founded with the premise that security is a data problem at its core, and in the cloud, it's a massive data problem." Our promise as an engineering-focused consulting firm is to help your business accelerate through these challenges. Part of what comes with our consulting practice is a partnership with the best-in-class tools and technology like Lacework. We pair these tools with our expert engineering talent to help our clients scale with confidence.
