Adam Goslin used to work for an e-commerce company, managing IT and infrastructure development. Today he and his partners have leveraged that experience to start their own online security firm,
High Bit Security
The 2-year-old firm specializes in IT Security Testing (Penetration Testing), Social Engineering, obtaining and maintaining PCI-DSS or PA-DSS compliance. The trio that started as a side gig now employ eight people in Rochester. It plans to add a few more people before the end of the year.
"It got to the point I couldn't do it on my own so we decided to make a go of it," Goslin says.
He expects High Bit Security's growth to continue because more businesses are becoming aware of the need for IT security. Then there are the growing number of regulations in industries like healthcare and finance that are also driving the demand for IT security services. And then there are the companies that are just figuring out the importance of IT security.
"Quite frankly, many businesses don't know where the stand from a security perspective," Goslin says.
