A History of Innovation

A History of Innovation

5thColumn was founded in Chicago in 2012 by Ray Hicks, one of the world’s leading security and infrastructure experts and inventors. We started as a managed security provider delivering clarity in a world of growing threats, complex tools, and underwhelming services.

That hasn’t changed. Since then, we’ve continued to improve the patented AI-based tools Ray invented. Now, they’re an integral part of BOSS, the powerful SaaS platform that is the keystone of our solutions.

Along the way, we attracted a deep team of experts to provide rapid incident response and other critical managed services from our advanced 24/7 Security Operations Center (SOC).
