NetAbstraction, the security by obfuscation company, today announced it has opened a new office here in close proximity to Fort Gordon and the Georgia Cyber Center. The company selected Augusta due to the large pool of experienced military cyber security veterans in the region. NetAbstraction expects to hire more than 20 new employees in Augusta this year.
NetAbstraction will host an industry event on March 2nd at the Georgia Cyber Center to discuss the cyber threats facing both the government and private sector. It will be attended by Admiral Mike Rogers, former director of the NSA, Jim Robinson, former CEO of American Express, Rich Baich, CISO of AIG and Jenny Menna, FS-ISAC Board Member. To register for this event, RSVP here.
“NetAbstraction, which has roots in the NSA and intelligence community, is growing rapidly and was looking for a second location which offered a large concentration of cyber security expertise,” said Gordon Lawson, CEO of NetAbstraction. “Augusta provides all the business resources we need and gives us access to veterans from Fort Gordon as well as technical graduates from nearby Georgia and South Carolina universities. This new office will become a center of technical expertise as well as a central inside sales hub for the company.”

“As a Georgia native, former CEO of American Express and investor in NetAbstraction, I am pleased to see the company has selected Augusta to expand its footprint and tap into local technical talent,” said Jim Robinson, Managing Partner of RRE. “NetAbstraction is transforming traditional approaches to cyber security through obfuscation, which is both powerful and easily accessible to any size organization.”
NetAbstraction provides technology that anonymizes an organization’s cloud resources including data and applications, as well as online communication devices. It was founded by a team that built clandestine telecommunication networks for the NSA and CIA. NetAbstraction protects customers’ digital infrastructures from ransomware and other cyber threats by making them invisible to attackers. The company’s products also enable organizations to securely conduct research online, examine threats and conduct other cyber activities without attribution.
According to Matt Mills, Executive Vice President of Augusta-based commercial real estate firm Southeastern, “NetAbstraction enables us to protect our business against ransomware by hiding our online presence from would-be attackers. It provides powerful security capabilities, is easy to deploy and does not require any changes to our systems that could interfere with operations. We are excited to welcome the company to the Augusta business community.”
