I first hired Michael as a consultant to perform firewall and VPN analysis in 2001. His passion for Information Security was evident and his results were superlative. As such, we continued to work with him for the next 5+ years in any capacity (Pen testing, Internal Audits, remediation, etc) where we could leverage his knowledge and deep experience.
I have worked with Michael during his time at SECNAP. I felt my networks were always safe and managed in the best possible way. Michael was always thinking ahead and could anticipate my requirements due to our global spread. Michael's development and knowledge of the security industry always proved valuable for Gazit when implementing new solutions and expanding to new regions.

Michael Scheidell is a great example of a consummate information security professional. Michael contributed a great deal to the successful implementation of our Information Security Program at Banco Internacional De Costa Rica when I was the V.P. of IT at that institution. Michael understands the importance of identifying the risk inherent on a network infrastructure, but more importantly, he is able to design and implement solutions that would minimize those risks to an acceptable level.

Passionate, hard-working and exciting; that's how I'd describe Michael in the work place. He has a unique way of viewing products, creating and inventing unique solutions in security...products that no one else could imagine and then take to market. In addition, his diversity of experience brings something extremely valuable to the table which cannot be ignored. Michael is a true professional. I enjoyed working with him.
