KUSA - Gary Shapiro sat down with Scott Yates to shine a spotlight on some of Colorado's hottest high tech companies.
Some companies, including Colorado's own Chipotle, are seeing declining incidents of shoplifting and better profit protection through in-store surveillance video from"Colorado's Own"Envysion Video. With its innovative live streaming and recorded in-store video Envysion snagged Chipotle restaurants as a premier client, and are adding others all the time. Security operations at cash businesses say they appreciate the fact that Envysion handles all of the system upgrades themselves. No need to wait around for lengthy software updates. And like so many other tech companies, this Louisville company is hiring.
An "Early But Interesting" name that is making some waves is The Lassy Project. They are involved in the very sensitive work of trying to help locate missing children. They create an app that allows parents to respond quickly to their child being in potentially dangerous situations. The parent can map out a route for their child to take from school to home for example. If the app identifies that the child has gone off course from their route, the parent will receive a notification on their phone. At this point, the parent may then choose to alert others in the area who have the app. This company was inspired by the Jessica Ridgeway tragedy, and was incubated by TechStars, which recently saw 10 new companies graduate and begin trying to make their way in the market.
Finally, we explore a data security company that is truly "Crushing It." In the wake of major data breaches such as the one that hit retailer Target last year, the corporate world has been looking for a data security provider that really delivers. Enter LogRhythm. Their Security Intelligence Platform is cutting edge in providing the best and fastest response to data breaches and to preventing them in the first place. LogRhythm also provides automated compliance checks to make sure that data is protected as it is supposed to be in the first place. These factors have propelled LogRhythm to national prominence as the fastest growing independent security firm in the country, and of course the company is hiring like crazy to keep up with all that growth.
