Always Proactive

I used Mike's [previous] company [at Curagen] ... for management of our IPS/IDS security infrastructure. Mike and his team were always proactive, keeping us informed of external threats and provided us great value for money for the work that he and his team performed.

Security Leader

I have recruited Data Security leaders since the early 80’s. Mike Scheidell is at the top of his profession. There is no challenge too big or too complicate for this industry guru. He has provided my organization with state of the art protection and I have never heard from him or his team “we can't do that”. An old story comes to mind, in the early 80’s I asked Mike if he knew how to provide my company a simple solution to a very complicated issue we had that appeared to be over the top. His answer was “no…, but I can figure it out”. And he did.
