Who We Are

aiden is a team of do’ers bringing deep experience and fresh energy to solve IT’s tenacious threats. We’re experienced entrepreneurs, software architects and developers with billion-dollar experience in IT, cybersecurity, finance, sales, and business development

We believe…

  • technology should just work without requiring legions of IT professionals maintaining constant vigilance and performing routine tasks automatically.
  • every risk, every update, every new insight matters and should be shared to benefit everyone.
  • enhancing the capabilities of organizations previously left out of technological innovation will keep all of us safer, healthier and more productive.
  • everyone deserves access to the IT sophistication usually only available to the top 1% of businesses. Democratizing access and understanding, drives everything we do.
  • clarity reigns supreme. Every communication and configuration must be easy to understand.

  • the next data breach before it happens.
