We Are Trusted | We Are Proven | We Are Security
TechGuard Security is an ISO 9001:2015-registered, certified SDB, DBE and Woman-Owned Business Enterprise. TechGuard Security was founded to address national cyber- defense initiatives and US critical infrastructure security. We take a holistic approach to addressing critical cybersecurity issues.
In early 2000, entrepreneur Suzanne Magee recognized a growing need for security and privacy of computer communications with the federal government going paperless and enterprises racing to have a presence on the ubiquitous Internet. Many organizations embraced the Internet with no thought of the vulnerabilities created by unprotected electronic access. With Andrea Johnson, a former computer engineer for the Boeing Company, they founded TechGuard in a small basement office in direct response to Presidential Decision Directive 63 to secure the US Critical Infrastructure. Their mission was to create proactive countermeasures to malicious network attacks through deployment of industry-leading services; and provide cutting-edge research and development of proactive security technology products. As opposed to security remaining a game of catch-up, our approach would help clients stay one step ahead of the hackers and the growing number of network threats.
As a first step, TechGuard deployed a firewall platform to guard our own company network. The success of this platform led to the realization of TechGuard’s vision for future security solutions such as the Great Walls of Fire® and PoliWall® security product suite. In 2013 TechGuard’s products division became Bandura®, LLC, a wholly-owned subsidiary of TechGuard Security.
TechGuard Cybersecurity Services have been deployed for over a decade for the DoD and the intelligence community, and our disruptive technology and lab services now range from nanotechnology and artificial intelligence products, to vulnerability research, malware analysis and tool development. TechGuard has filed for over fifty patents which are issued or pending in the US and internationally. TechGuardians address the current challenges of cyber security and privacy, specifically the problems of information management, network vulnerabilities, firewall integrity and network security concerns created by e-commerce initiatives, global Internet connections and cyber terrorism.
