Today, companies ranging in size from high-growth start-ups to large enterprise customers are staying secure and compliant using Ostendio's MyVCM cybersecurity and information management platform.
"We are very pleased to be a Finalist in the Best Tech Workplace for Diversity. I am from Scotland originally, one of my co-founders is from India and the other is a veteran. We see this as one of our key strengths as it allows us to bring our unique and different perspectives to the table as we face any challenge or obstacle. Being a diverse organization, we are better able to serve the various environments we operate in," said Ostendio's President and CEO, Grant Elliott.
