Jason Young and Jesse Jones formed Beacon Cloud Solutions in 2011 with the idea that an internet connection and browser are all that is needed to get work done. This concept arose from the buzz around "Cloud Computing" and their selfish desire to work smarter, faster, and better. Initially, Jason and Jesse saw the substantial potential for using Google Apps within their existing Cybersecurity organization as a means to move in the direction of the cloud and gain experience in the new and emerging space. Fortunately enough for both, the company they worked for shot down all attempts at innovating internally and prompted the formation of Beacon Cloud Solutions. Out of the gate, Beacon Cloud Solutions offered AWS EC2 and Google Apps for Work as services and products to small and medium-sized businesses around the greater San Diego, CA area. One year into the venture Beacon Cloud Solutions married the love of innovation, Cloud Computing, and their Cybersecurity experience to land their first government contract with the Defense Health Agency (DHA) implementing FedRAMP. This effort is where the real learning began to happen.
WHAT WE LEARNED
Breaking into the federal contracting space can be a daunting endeavor, and it honestly comes down to proven work, established relationships, and the formation of new relationships. Within the federal government space, innovation is often only seen or available to the broader enterprise rollouts of new applications and stifled in the day to day operations that allow people to get work done. It is in these manual business processes BCS found success and innovative approaches.
"It's people who care enough to keep thinking about something until they find the simplest way to do it." Tim Cook - Apple CEO
This enlightenment was not learned overnight though; it grew from within our CULTURE. BCS holds the belief that there is always a better way; Apple's Tim Cook sums it up nicely, "It's people who care enough to keep thinking about something until they find the simplest way to do it." It is this mindset we try to instill in our staff, to always think of a better way, and we have been hugely successful at it. It is this thinking that drives our future.
What is the future? It is our mission to enable Cybersecurity Professionals to make objective risk-based decisions through innovative solutions. Government IT compliance surrounding Risk Management Framework (RMF) is riddled with manual processes, spreadsheets, and everyone's favorite, email. BCS is taking these processes and uncorrelated data across these disparate productivity tools and making it meaningful, increasing data integrity, and providing decision makers with operational visibility and intelligence about their Information System.
