SecureTech360, a cybersecurity and information technology consulting firm, will invest $155,000 to expand in Fairfax County, Virginia. The project is expected to create 10 new jobs.
The company will grow its presence in the healthcare IT and cybersecurity field to provide secure, scalable, and equitable healthcare solutions and products. The company is based at 6564 Loisdale Road in the Springfield area (Lee District) of Fairfax County.
“Motivated by a desire to increase diverse representation in the healthcare IT and cybersecurity space, SecureTech360 is excited about the opportunity to create jobs in Virginia for underserved populations,” said Quiana Gainey, Principal CEO of SecureTech360. “SecureTech360 will continue to build a bridge between individuals from marginalized communities and provide access to opportunities in the healthcare IT and cybersecurity industry through innovation and training," she added.
The Virginia Economic Development Partnership (VEDP) worked with Fairfax County to secure the project and will support SecureTech360’s job creation through the Virginia Jobs Investment Program, which provides consultative services and funding to companies creating new jobs in order to support employee recruitment and training activities. As a business incentive supporting economic development, VJIP reduces the human resource costs of new and expanding companies. VJIP is state-funded, demonstrating Virginia’s commitment to enhancing job opportunities for citizens.
“Virginia’s leading position in the technology sector makes it an ideal home for innovative startups,” said Secretary of Commerce and Trade Brian Ball. “SecureTech360’s expansion in Fairfax County is a testament to the region’s entrepreneurial spirit and top tech talent. We are very excited to support this SWaM-certified business providing great value to the healthcare industry.”
Founded in 2010, SecureTech360, LLC has doubled in size as a small business since its inception. The company focuses on modernizing technology, cybersecurity, and transforming the digital experience for its customers. Most clients are in the first responder community, and the company provides product offerings to help them navigate into secure cloud technology and scale operations for the future.
“We are always pleased to help woman, minority, and veteran-owned businesses grow their presence in Fairfax County and Northern Virginia,” said President and CEO of the Fairfax County Economic Development Authority Victor Hoskins. “Working with SecureTech360 is particularly gratifying because it is creating opportunities in IT sectors for diverse populations.”
