Who is UniSec?

UniSec was founded in 2019 as a continuation of a previous IT security company, where the principals had worked for over 18 years. The goal remains the same, to create a suite of services that would provide small and medium sized corporations with “Fortune 500” levels of IT security, at a reasonable price and without the operational complexity usually associated with such services. UniSec has the staff and experience to provide contemporary security at a reasonable price, as well as the consulting, remediation and support that goes along with a complete Cybersecurity and compliance solution.
