Software Development and DevOps
Shield provides diverse teams of engineers to provide secure software, systems, network, and database architecture, engineering and administration services. Our engineers focus on both edge technologies for better future-state solutions, as well as using FOSS tools for cost savings. Shield provides full stack development using the Agile software methodology to develop secure software using best practices to avoid the accidental introduction of security vulnerabilities. We lead prototype efforts, develop applications for customer outreach/engagement, and implement tools to automate cumbersome system administration tasks.
Advanced Big Data Cloud Security Analytics & Systems Training
Shield uses FOSS and emerging technologies to integrate innovative security analytic and visualization capabilities. These capabilities improve our customers' ability to monitor and alert to insider threats before they occur.
Shield uses tools like Confluence to document complex repeatable tasks and critical technical knowledge normally trapped in emails and chats, and then documents the artifacts.
