​Glacier Security’s Cybersecurity Infrastructure Evolves with New Threats

Spotlight Companies  |

Technology has advanced and evolved dramatically over the past couple decades - with the pace showing no signs of slowing any time soon. While there’s no denying the incredible benefits this has provided, including enhanced communication and greater access to information for all, it’s also brought about very serious new challenges. Perhaps the most pressing of these is the serious new risks to personal security, IP, and trade secrets. So, perhaps it’s a testament to human ingenuity that the team at Glacier Security is using technology to solve the problems posed by technology in the first place.

“Glacier security is a full service provider of secure communications solutions with both mobile and wired solutions,” said Glacier Security COO Jason Perzanowski in a recent interview with Equities.com Broadcast Contributor Silvia Davi. “What we do with that is, we empower our clients to communicate securely throughout nations all over the world, and what this allows them to do is protect their data, their communications, intellectual property, and any other things they may want to protect within their business.”

“There’s a lot of infrastructure and systems out that are static,” explained Glacier Systems Engineer Alex White in the same interview. “It’s the same IP addresses, same names, and it’s very difficult to move that, which also makes it simple to manage from an IT perspective. So we took that and switched it around, saying ‘Well, what if we changed the infrastructure every day, or every week, or every month?’ which allows our customers to have a secured and encrypted and anonymous network to communicate to one another. And the infrastructure, basically is torn down at the end of every business trip, or at the end of every quarter, and all new infrastructure, all new devices are set up so that you can guarantee that infrastructure is clean and never tampered with.”

White explains that the team at Glacier will set up infrastructure in their systems that’s unique for each client. “So, you might have ten executives traveling overseas,” says White, “those ten executives are all going to use their own custom, private infrastructure.”

Perzanowski and White believe this gives Glacier Security a distinct advantage over their less forward-thinking competition. “Other organizations that provide secure messaging and secure communications have static infrastructure, or they’re sharing infrastructures,” says White. So, you’re using the same static system and IP addresses as a hundred thousand, or a million other users.”

Security Through a Constantly Changing Infrastructure

Naturally, there’s massive demand for secure communications among individuals as well as large and small companies, and even governments - a fact that is certainly not lost on White and Perzanowski. “We’re currently targeting both the government side and the commercial industry, White says, “COOs, board members, the medical industry, the insurance industry. And though Glacier Security currently only operates in the US, In the future, White explains that “in the future, we’re looking to expand globally.”

Of course, any company that boasts the best defense against cyber attacks is only as effective as its ability to stay up-to-date with current technology, which begs the question: What is the future of cybersecurity? “I think it’s the shape-shifting, and the moving target defense network framework and theory,” says White “where, not only can you provide an infrastructure that’s always changing, but also scale that to a full infrastructure. So, a company can have workstations, and networks that are constantly moving, that allows them to guarantee that is a clean infrastructure, with no malware, no viruses on the network. If it’s constantly shifting and recreating itself, then you can always guarantee that it’s clean.”

Old School Solutions to Daunting New Challenges

Cybersecurity is obviously a very complex and serious problem, so it’s perhaps heartening to see that Perzanowski and White recommend a simple and pragmatic approach to tackling it. To those upstart entrepreneurs looking to enter the field, Perzanowski recommends taking “a current problem in cybersecurity, or a piece that you’re interested in, and look to improve on that.”

White agrees, stating “We talk to people every day who have a unique problem that they need some industry or some organization to solve. There’s a lot of different cyber companies out there, but we’re not even at the tip-of-the-iceberg regarding the opportunities out there.”
