When Jeremy Farber launched his company 10 years ago under the name Miami Computers, the moniker was a bit of a misnomer. After all, its headquarters was actually in upstate New York.
Today, the Chantilly-based firm is called Securis but even that name isn’t a perfect fit. Farber’s company doesn’t just discard old electronics, it first wipes their data and shreds them into confetti.
“A couple of our big customers early on were big government contractors and they loved us, but they were really interested in information security,” Farber said. “It was a very big priority to them, more so than the environmental aspect of it.”
