You add those together and you get a really fast-moving team that iterates to get value to the customer quickly." - Steve Gardos, Director of Engineering "Bringing a complex space like security down to its essence and then building back up to a point where anyone can install and manage it is a great challenge. We make it look easy, and that is a blast." - Don Nelson, Chief Technology Officer
