Another year gone by, and what a year it was on so many fronts! This was the year that challenged us to scale effectively and am heartened to see how the team responded. We went from a handful of customers in 2015 to a full book in 2016. Scaling to a greater customer diversity while maintaining or exceeding level of service is always tough, but Team Acumen was up to the challenge. This was evidenced by the all round positive feedback we have received from our customers and quantified by the high marks received in the FIPS survey. Along the way we had some key team additions as well as diversification into other services such as support for FedRAMP audits.

April 2017 Acumen will be three years old and I guess that is when we stop being a startup? If 2016 was exciting, 2017 is going to be down right amazing. Few items already lined up are move to a new larger office space, revamping our website, a project management and customer interaction portal, validating the next version of openSSL and lot more! What will remain unchanged will be our ethos to keep simplifying certification and driving value for the investment our customers make in certifying their products.

Happy New Year! Welcome 2017!
