Ridgefield data security innovator moving HQ to Danbury

December 6, 2018

A Ridgefield digital security innovator is relocating its headquarters to Danbury from Ridgefield, after its biggest year yet providing services to the military and federal agencies among other customers.

Owl Cyber Defense Solutions will be located at 42 Old Ridgebury Road on the west side of Danbury, with the company having occupied a comparatively small office in Ridgefield at 38A Grove St.

Known until last year as Owl Computing Technologies, under CEO Mike Timan, Owl Cyber Defense sells data diodes that ensure data can flow only one way in a network, eliminating points of entry that could allow intruders to infiltrate a network and stopping hackers or insiders from transferring information.

Marking its 20th anniversary next year, Owl Cyber Defense has more than 2,000 installations of its technology in the field today, including with the U.S. Army, Air Force, Navy and Marine Corps; federal intelligence agencies; and commercial customers like banks.
