Solving Unique Issues

Criminal exploit methods, network reconnaissance, technical architecture, social media, mobile devices, and intellectual property concerns change faster than the technology associated with protecting your important assets. Maintaining effective operational security requires exotic technical skills of an unprecedented level of sophistication and complexity. The time and specialized knowledge required to combat today's security concerns is rarely afforded to technology staff engaged in the rigors of everyday systems management.

Meeting the challenges of information security can be daunting when your business operations and service delivery are on the line. We understand. It's unpredictable and complex. You need a partner, a guardian, who can help with your information security needs, even if they're unprecedented, so you can focus on business success.

Our History

Inspired by his work with early Pentagon websites, Michael Newman built Iron Shields from the ground up. He realized that civilian agencies and private companies, as well as non-profit organizations, deserved the same level of security available to the FBI, military, and federal intelligence agencies.

Founded in 1998, Iron Shields is now the East Coast's leading provider of risk management, vulnerability assessment, and incident response services and consulting, winning several awards for service excellence.
