Trimarc: From Trimarcisia, “feat of three horsemen,” was an ancient Celtic military cavalry tactic where there was always a rider ready to mount the horse of a fallen soldier.
Trimarc Security, LLC (Trimarc) focuses on continuously developing defensive strategies to combat evolving attack techniques. Our primary approach is “defense in depth” which focuses on defensive layers within the enterprise – while any single defense may fail, there are others that compensate for this and provide additional detection and/or mitigation for that area.
Our mission is to identify ways to better protect organizations from modern threats not effectively stopped by traditional security measures.
Our goal is to keep our customers off the front page of the paper.
We believe that effective defense is based on an approach involving three primary components: Detection, Mitigation, and Prevention.
Trimarc provides leading expertise in security solutions including strategy, architecture, tactical implementations, and long-term maintenance. In addition, Trimarc performs renowned security research that has helped drive the implementation of effective protection measures for organizations reliant on Microsoft technologies.
