Lockard Security – Story

Nick Lockard started in his basement back in 2008 as a break fix security services company removing viruses from computers. This was during the height of rogue anti-virus and the start of ransomware. Nick was featured in the Wall Street Journal by journalist Walt Mossberg when he reviewed Crossloop.

This review helped shape Lockard into what it is today. Lockard is a Managed Security Services Provider (MSSP) that specializes in defensive and offensive services. We work to create custom security solutions, tailored to each customers unique environments and needs. Lockard hires top talent and partners with the top technology vendors.
