Cost Effective Results

Many Security Analysis Providers have a "product" that they prefer to introduce to their clients.   We are not providers of any specific hardware or software, in fact we strongly believe that a "layered" approach utilizing cost effective "common sense" approaches is often more effective than any single security system no matter the cost.

My company contracted Bill Thermann to assist us in applying for and achieving our   C-TPAT certification from US Customs Border Patrol. Bill and his team worked enthusiastically with us from the beginning through to the point where we received our certification and eventual validation by CBP. Bill is a true professional, working diligently to deliver on promises made. He has an easy, good natured way of relaxing the mood even when the pressure is on to meet requirements and deadlines. I would gladly recommend him to others for their security needs.
