History and Philosophy

Zimmer and Associates LLC was founded in 2002 by Bryan Zimmer, a security analyst with a passion for the information security field. During his fifteen years in the industry Bryan has worked in the Federal government, private, non-profit, and educational sectors in organizations ranging from startups to global enterprises. His approach to security is a careful balance of paranoia and sanity. Bryan’s years of experience at the Department of Defense made him exceptionally security conscious, while his time in University environments made him more sensitive to the need for openness and usability.

Our team tries to find the right balance of security based on what the client needs, what changes they’re willing to make, and what level of risk they’re willing to accept. We can add as much or as little security to your environment as you like.
