• Security


    Vulnerability Assessments
    Designing systems takes experience and focus. All components of the system must follow a common design goal. We can design the complete enterprise or a specific component to interoperate with the rest of the enterprise.

    Secure Embedded

    Secure Embedded Systems
    We have been building mission critical systems for over a decade. We've also designed and developed highly secure embedded technology and systems. Or expertise in smart card technology is evidenced by patents already awarded for our designs.

    Security Surveys

    Industrial Security Surveys
    We can prepare a survey for your specific environment or we can also perform the survey. Don't wait until after a big issue to kick yourself for not taking security threats seriously. Think of how easily you could lose everything if a hacker entered your computers or bypassed your physical security.

    Security Audits
    Designing a secure system begins with an audit of the existing system and process. Even if you plan to have your internal team do the development, we are available to perform an independent analysis of your security systems and processes.

    Computer Forensics
    Recover lost data, understand why a system crashed, or simply unerase a deleted file. There are tools available that help, but when those don't work, give us a call. If it is for a legal matter, don't touch the systems yourself – we understand how to collect, preserve, and present evidence.

    Smart Card

    Smart Card Systems
    We will design and build you a smart card application tailored to your exact specification. We can provide pre-built applications for many standards or develop to your standard. In many cases, we are able to develop a card that will co-exist with your existing system.

  • Development


    databases

    Databases
    Customized database design, development, and maintenance. Proficient with Oracle, SQL Server, My SQL, Postgres, 4D, and others. Proper architecture will results in a well operating and maintainable database.

    plug in

    System Architecture
    Proper design is imperative to a successful project. We have many years of experience designing embedded and large enterprise systems. We can review your architecture, work with you to refine it, or build you a solid architecture to your specific requirements.

    Special
    If you can describe it, we can spec it and build it. No reason to learn engineering – that's our job. You think of the idea and describe it as best you can. We'll work with you to make it real.

    small systems

    Small Systems
    Complex functionality targeted at very small computing devices. Small devices don't need to do small things. We do very complex things in small devices, and have the Patents to prove it. Describe your needs and we'll point you to the best components.

  • Development

    Additional Services

    From secure network devices to access control, we know how it works, and we will make it work for you.
