AIS Celebrates 20 Years

“Starting AIS 20 years ago was one of the biggest risks I’ve ever taken and though I was confident we could create something great, I never could have imagined that we’d become an industry leader and have sustained success for decades to come. Back then, all we wanted to do was create an environment where innovation could thrive and employees could be themselves. I’m so proud that we’ve maintained that focus while tackling some of cybersecurity’s toughest problems.

To all our employees, customers, stakeholders, families and friends – thank you for your continued commitment to AIS. I look forward to more adventures and most importantly, continued progress toward our mission.”

- Charles Green, CEO
