Denver Cyber Security Announces Merger with Web Development Firm Denver Web Services

DENVER, Nov. 12, 2012 /PRNewswire-iReach/ -- Denver Cyber Security, an IT security firm providing custom solutions for companies throughout the state of Colorado, has recently been acquired by internet marketing and web development firm Denver Web Services. The cyber security component of the newly combined company brings critical strength to the operations of web development by providing protection for IT assets and other sensitive information.

According to Ray Hutchins, President of Denver Web Services, "These two are a natural fit because any company doing business on the web is exposed to one degree or another to cyber security attack, whether from a malicious source or from a competitor wishing to uncover propriety company information. The target may be as simple as a company's customer database, but the solution is obvious: leading-edge, continuously-vigilant cyber security."

Denver Web Services recognized early on that cyber security should be offered as an integral part of web development and deployment.  Denver Web Services is an internet marketing and web development firm that specializes in search engine optimization (SEO), an essential strategy for driving high page rankings for businesses seeking to increase market share by maximizing their presence on Google and Bing.

Hutchins stated, "The fact that internet marketing and SEO are such powerful drivers of business has made it practically mandatory for companies to maintain an internet presence – and as the law of unintended consequences often proves – this very connection and reliance on the internet has become a source of vulnerability.  Cyber security has become a concern for every business that is connected to the internet in any way.  And what company is not connected to the internet? Whether a company needs to protect its own systems, proprietary software, and trade secrets – or whether customer data is at stake, ignoring the stakes and the possible liabilities is no longer an option."

As Shawn Henry, Executive Assistant Director of the FBI stated in the March 28th, 2012 edition of the Wall Street Journal, "I do not believe that there is a single, secure, unclassified computer network in the U.S. today." This is alarming news from the agency most responsible for securing the nation's IT assets, and the keyword in his statement is the word "unclassified."  This designation essentially encompasses every area outside of the government and military.

Attacking the serious issue of cyber security is not just for huge organizations such as the government.  It is an issue for everyone: every person, every business because the cost of an operational interruption could become very serious very quickly.  The effect of it could easily be cascading, and the escalation could result in enormous damage almost overnight.  This, of course, could very possibly include devastating costs, both financially and to a company's reputation in the marketplace.

It has therefore become mandatory that businesses and individuals protect themselves. The massive proliferation of new interconnected technologies has opened areas of vulnerability that must be mitigated and integrated with proper security configurations, safeguards, and monitoring in order to protect from attack and exploitation.

Denver Cyber Security is led by Ray Hutchins, who is CISSP trained and an active member of the Denver chapter of the ISSA.  The company is a partner of Solutionary, one of the top managed security providers in the United States (along with others such as Dell, Verizon, AT&T, IBM, and Symantec).

By utilizing cloud-based technology, Solutionary effectively delivers its security solutions without requiring the purchase of on-site equipment. This cloud-based approach gives businesses the ability to expand the service as their needs grow and change. A cloud-based infrastructure also provides economies of scale that allow for the delivery of very cost-effective solutions.

Hutchins stated, "Again, I can't speak strongly enough to the need to protect my clients' security issues – and also to find innovative ways to ensure that they have the very best shot possible at winning the turf wars at Google and Bing. Having a great website is just the beginning; in fact, it is the foundation of any successful online business strategy, but utilizing search engine optimization effectively as a marketing tool demands thinking out of the box and taking advantage of every possible avenue. And doing it well also includes adding that extra layer of security that only cyber security can provide."

Kubernetes is a new and revolutionary open-sourced system for managing containers across multiple hosts in a cluster. Ansible is a simple IT automation tool for just about any requirement for reproducible environments. In his session at @DevOpsSummit at 18th Cloud Expo, Patrick Galbraith, a principal engineer at HPE, discussed how to build a fully functional Kubernetes cluster on a number of virtual machines or bare-metal hosts. Also included will be a brief demonstration of running a Galera MyS...
About a year ago we tuned into “the need for speed” and how a concept like "serverless computing” was increasingly catering to this. We are now a year further and the term “serverless” is taking on unexpected proportions. With some even seeing it as the successor to cloud in general or at least as a successor to the clouds’ poorer cousin in terms of revenue, hype and adoption: PaaS. The question we need to ask is whether this constitutes an example of Hype Hopping: to effortlessly pivot to the ...
Today’s IT environments are increasingly heterogeneous, with Linux, Java, Oracle and MySQL considered nearly as common as traditional Windows environments. In many cases, these platforms have been integrated into an organization’s Windows-based IT department by way of an acquisition of a company that leverages one of those platforms. In other cases, the applications may have been part of the IT department for years, but managed by a separate department or singular administrator. Still, whether...
As we enter the final week before the 19th International Cloud Expo | @ThingsExpo in Santa Clara, CA, it's time for me to reflect on six big topics that will be important during the show. Hybrid Cloud: This general-purpose term seems to provide a comfort zone for many enterprise IT managers. It sounds reassuring to be able to work with one of the major public-cloud providers like AWS or Microsoft Azure while still maintaining an on-site presence.
I’m a huge fan of open source DevOps tools. I’m also a huge fan of scaling open source tools for the enterprise. But having talked with my fair share of companies over the years, one important thing I’ve learned is that you can’t scale your release process using open source tools alone. They simply require too much scripting and maintenance when used that way. Scripting may be fine for smaller organizations, but it’s not ok in an enterprise environment that includes many independent teams and to...
Get deep visibility into the performance of your databases and expert advice for performance optimization and tuning. You can't get application performance without database performance. Give everyone on the team a comprehensive view of how every aspect of the system affects performance across SQL database operations, host server and OS, virtualization resources and storage I/O. Quickly find bottlenecks and troubleshoot complex problems.
Between 2005 and 2020, data volumes will grow by a factor of 300 – enough data to stack CDs from the earth to the moon 162 times. This has come to be known as the ‘big data’ phenomenon. Unfortunately, traditional approaches to handling, storing and analyzing data aren’t adequate at this scale: they’re too costly, slow and physically cumbersome to keep up. Fortunately, in response a new breed of technology has emerged that is cheaper, faster and more scalable. Yet, in meeting these new needs they...

In IT, we sometimes coin terms for things before we know exactly what they are and how they’ll be used. The resulting terms may capture a common set of aspirations and goals – as “cloud” did broadly for on-demand, self-service, and flexible computing. But such a term can also lump together diverse and even competing practices, technologies, and priorities to the point where important distinctions are glossed over and lost.
Monitoring of Docker environments is challenging. Why? Because each container typically runs a single process, has its own environment, utilizes virtual networks, or has various methods of managing storage. Traditional monitoring solutions take metrics from each server and applications they run. These servers and applications running on them are typically very static, with very long uptimes. Docker deployments are different: a set of containers may run many applications, all sharing the resource...

In his session at @DevOpsSummit at 19th Cloud Expo, Neil Gehani, senior product manager at HPE, discussed what every business should plan for how to structure their teams to delive...
DevOps is being widely accepted (if not fully adopted) as essential in enterprise IT. But as Enterprise DevOps gains maturity, expands scope, and increases velocity, the need for data-driven decisions across teams becomes more acute.
