Pratum Celebrates 10 Year Anniversary as Iowa's Cybersecurity Leader

We are celebrating Pratum’s 10-year anniversary

In 2008, in the middle of a national financial crisis, I set out to establish an information security consulting company. I wasn’t sure how quickly we would grow or how large we would become, but I knew we could serve our clients well and help them solve information security challenges based on risk, not fear.

As I reflect on the past 10 years, one thing is certain, Pratum’s strength and vibrancy is not due to my shear will and determination. Our success is directly linked to our employees, the team of consummate professionals who serve our clients day in and day out. Whose tireless efforts ensure our clients achieve the right balance of information security.

From our beginnings, we have strived to bring together the best people who enjoy working together to solve problems. This teamwork and cohesive working environment is seen and felt by the clients we serve. I’m humbled by and thankful for the people who make up this amazing team.

Pratum also owes its success to you, our clients. You entrust us with your most sensitive information. You rely on us to help grow your business. Our teams work side by side to implement creative solutions to improve information security, without breaking the bank or strangling your business operations. I’m thankful for the trust you place in us and love watching your accomplishments.

As we celebrate this 10-year anniversary, it is only fitting we do so as we dedicate our new headquarters in Ankeny, IA. This new facility enables us to continue to grow our team here in Iowa and offers a great place for people to work and raise their families. It provides us the opportunity to serve our existing clients and a place where we can meet our future customers.

My family and I thank all of you for this amazing journey. We were confident Pratum would succeed, but this level of success only comes from surrounding yourself with great people. So, we say thank you to the great people both on our staff and those on staff with our clients.

I’ll leave you with one final quote from Winston Churchill, which I think captures Pratum’s future perfectly.

Now this is not the end. It is not even the beginning of the end. But it is, perhaps, the end of the beginning.

We at Pratum are just getting started and the future is exciting!

Thank you,
