What started in 2001 as a 3-person consulting firm has now, 10 years later, grown into an internationally respected information security company with clients in both government and commercial sectors.
SecureState has garnered many awards in the past 10 years, continuously ranking on prestigious award lists such as the Inc. 500/5000 list of America’s top security companies, The Weatherhead 100 for continus growth, NorthCoast 99 for great workplaces for top talent in Northeast Ohio and the NEO Success Award for its resolve to grow and invigorate the region's economy.
On top of its extensive awards list, SecureState prides itself on continuously researching and educating the information security community. SecureState consultants routinely release new tools, exploits and vulnerabilities listing them for the public on SecureState's website.
SecureState’s Northeast Ohio (securestate.com) headquarters recently expanded from its original 5,500 sq. ft. facility to over 19,000 sq. ft. providing an exciting way to kick of the 10 year milestone. The revamped building contnues to support the firm’s fast paced growth and includes state-of-the-art security, facility maintenance, and lighting controls, including motorized blinds and custom built hacking table driven by Crestron components.
“I’m extremely proud of what we have accomplished in such a short time…even though it’s considered eons in the security industry,”said SecureState CEO, Ken Stasiak.
“With growth comes opportunity and we feel fortunate to be able to support our community. From holding free seminars for clients and the public to giving our time and efforts to local children and even animal charities, SecureState’s team is dedicated to its community,” said Stasiak.
“Having a growing business for 10 consecutive years is no small feat”, said SecureState President, Stephen Marchewitz. “The redesign and expansion provides a visual reminder of the pride we have in what we’ve been able to accomplish at SecureState. High-tech has had its ups and downs since 2001, but we’ve been able to consistently improve no matter the economic condition – right here in Cleveland, OH.”
We would not be where we are today without our clients who allow us to do what we love while growing steadily. I also have to thank my amazing team of present and past employees for getting SecureState to where it is today. The amount of diverse knowledge and skill that they bring to the table is immense and invaluable to the company and our clients.
