Our technology team is packed with cryptographers, artificial intelligent experts, hardware designers and solutions engineers who have previously maintained the entire Department of Defense IT infrastructure. In fact, eight of our expert team members carry the highest-level DOD security clearances.
Our team also has a successful background in worldwide deployments. They skillfully handle IT security through their experience with the United States government. (Of course, for the rest of us at PROVEN, their intense tactical training makes company-sponsored paintball activities more like Seal training than a week-day off-site team-building game!) As technology improves so will our tech stack. PROVEN is constantly upgrading equipment, training and security measures. Our commitment is to excellence.
