I’m Kevin Johnson, one of the founders and CEO of Secure Ideas. We’re a security consulting firm here in Jacksonville, Florida, and what that means is we’re ethical hackers is a common term for it. Companies hire us to test or assess their security and then tell them the problems that they can fix it. We get to do everything from open source tools that we release and build and push out there to breaking and cracking passwords. We have a cracking server here that will do 9 billion attempts per second to crack the password. It’s just… I have the best job in the world.
We’re not a huge company, and so we don’t just going on a website and chatting with some programmed bot that is going to talk back to you. So the ability to say, hey, this is our needs, this is what we’re doing, and let’s be blunt, it’s not very common for an internet service provider to have somebody call them up and say, “Hi. I would like an internet connection. It’s got to be fast, got to be reliable. And oh, by the way, what we’re going to use it for is to attack a whole bunch of other people.” This is not normal internet usage.
So to be able to explain it and talk about it and make sure that not only do you understand that we need reliability, we need that type of service, but we need a point of contact that we can say, “Hey, by the way, we’re attacking this government agency, with permission, you may see some weird traffic come across. Don’t block us.” So right from the beginning, working with Uniti was awesome and great. Like I said, the transparency of the openness and every single person we’ve talked to at Uniti, in every case has been professional, helpful, and really just a pleasure to work with. I feel like I need to figure out something bad to say about you all, but so far you haven’t given me anything to be pissed about, so that’s not a challenge. But you guys have been great and if anybody wants to know about Uniti or is thinking about signing up, do it. It has been more than worth every penny we’ve spent on it.
