Fishtech Labs Debuts Technology Accelerator

Focused on Next-Generation Solutions in Cyber Security, Cloud, Virtualization, and SDN

KANSAS CITY, MO--(Marketwired - April 04, 2016) -  Fishtech Labs is officially open for business. Founded by industry veteran and serial entrepreneur Gary Fish, along with Dan Thormodsgaard and Chuck Crawford, Fishtech is a new concept in bringing to market next-generation solutions for new world problems.

"Kansas City continues to attract national and international attention for its growing tech sector," said Missouri Governor Jay Nixon. "The state of Missouri strongly supports the entrepreneurs and startups that are creating jobs, and this announcement from Fishtech Labs is more good news for our economy."

Through strict selection criteria, Fishtech Labs identifies, benchmarks, and tests next-generation technologies that may combine with existing mature technologies to form cohesive and secure cloud and hybrid cloud environments. Fishtech Labs then partners with these companies by investing its dollars, people, process, and technology to accelerate marketplace adoption.

"Our world has changed," says Fish, CEO of the new venture. "Legacy on-network solutions are no longer always relevant to today's environments. Enterprises are looking to adopt cloud technologies but 'digital clutter' makes it difficult to move quickly and decisively in a secure and efficient manner."

Co-founder Thormodsgaard says that most innovative next-generation technology companies are still too small to be on customers' radar.

"Our high standards, industry experience, and selection criteria assures our customers that the emerging technologies and services we represent are proven and best in class," he says.

"Fishtech's acceleration program is a unique and exciting partnership for us," says Guy Guzner, CEO and founder of Fireglass. "Fishtech has a dedicated focus on next-generation technologies and understands what it takes to bring to market emerging, leading edge solutions like the Fireglass Threat Isolation Platform. Unlike traditional detection-based solutions, Fireglass isolates all content and blocks threats from ever reaching organizations. Together with Fishtech, we are challenging the current cyber security paradigm and solving enterprises' major security problems."

"We want to change the status quo," says Fish. "Legacy solution providers don't understand and are not adapting quickly enough to new cloud-based technologies and environments. Launching Fishtech in the cloud era has allowed us to start fresh. We're solving new world technology problems without the old world baggage."
