Fast-growing cybersecurity firm supplies specialized expertise that protects critical U.S. government networks.
SAN ANTONIO, TX — CNF Technologies has landed on Inc. 5000's list of fastest-growing businesses in the U.S. for its specialized cybersecurity expertise that protects our nation's critical infrastructure. Founded locally by husband and wife team Fred and Roxanne Ramirez in 2005, CNF Technologies is working on two emerging problems in cybersecurity: how to protect our nation's critical infrastructure and how to stay ahead of rapidly evolving cyber threats.
CNF provides world-class cybersecurity solutions for government agencies, developing, testing and using cyber weapon systems and technologies for offensive and defensive cyber operations. The company also supports law enforcement and counterintelligence operations with its growing research and development capabilities.
The Port San Antonio-based company has grown from its first employee in 2005 to over 150 working on the Port's expansive technology campus and other key locations across the country. Employees provide expertise on evaluating and integrating emerging technologies, designing secure architectures, providing rapid prototyping of defenses and other tools and performing vulnerability assessments and pentration tests.
Community service and outreach are integral to CNF Technologies' growth plans, which is why the company has partnered with the University of Texas at San Antonio (UTSA) as the institution establishes its National Security Collaboration Center (NSCC), which will advance research, education and workforce development in cybersecurity, data analytics and cloud computing. Along with the Port, the NSCC is a vital partner in bolstering the region's status as a tech and cyber epicenter.
