As the number of connected devices grows, the potential also exists that they could fall victim to a cyber attack. As a company that focuses on Internet of Things (IoT) security, that’s a reality that members of the team at ReFirm Labs confronted first working at the National Security Agency, and now developing the Fulton, Md.-based company’s commercial product, called Centrifuge Platform. The company’s own lifecycle to date shows a path through Maryland’s cybersecurity community: Members of the team honed experience inside NSA. Then they formed a company called Tactical Network Solutions. From that company’s work on the platform, ReFirm Labs spun out and received backing from DataTribe, a Fulton-based startup studio looking to support technologists who worked inside government agencies that are now building startups.
