Convergint Technologies, Orbis Operations to provide cyber security solutions

Convergint Technologies and Orbis Operations have formed Cybis, a joint venture between the two companies to provide cyber security solutions, the companies said.

Cyber security continues to be a vital concern of business leaders and senior executives, with 80 percent of board members saying that cyber security is discussed at most or all board meetings. Cybis is equipped to act as a trusted advisor to clients for the full range of issues related to cyber security, according to Josh Mayne, CEO of Orbis.

Cybis will leverage Orbis´ experience working in the intelligence community with the latest technologies to develop tailored cyber security solutions capable of defending against advanced external and internal threats. Lee Black, who brings more than 20 years of experience in combined intelligence and IT security service to the firm, has been named chief executive officer of Cybis.

Convergint Technologies designs, installs and services integrated building systems including electronic security, fire alarm and life safety systems.

Orbis Operations is a privately held firm that provides specialized training, intelligence advisory support, and cyber security services to the US military and intelligence community, foreign governments and commercial customers.
