We take our technical skills seriously
We pride ourselves on staying current with new trends, tools, technologies, platforms, and information security vulnerabilities.
We’re just as comfortable making and breaking software and hardware to push the boundaries of information security, information and data management, and knowledge management as we are being on-site helping our clients.
We’re often found writing scripts to streamline workflows, building tools to make processes more efficient, and developing new ways to make systems more resilient. We’re always up for the challenge of researching cybersecurity threats, conducting penetration tests, or tracking and battling malware.
Recent projects include:
- Developing a custom chatbot for a knowledge base
- Developing custom tools for on-the-fly language translation within an intranet
- Developing an “ingest app” to populate Salesforce and SharePoint knowledge bases
- Using the FireOak Acorn to remotely diagnose a client’s network outage
