At SAGE you will often hear the phrase “at the tip of the spear.” While many security companies just focus on the “shield” portion of our business, we recognize that in today’s fast moving environment, you need people advancing your interests, not just protecting your assets. The tip of the spear is the point where our team leaders pierce through the noise of quick fixes and unstable solutions, to bring you laser-focused integration, bringing the breadth of our resources to the strategic center of your enterprise priorities. This philosophy is embodied best by our team of leaders, industry veterans and seasoned executives committed to keeping SAGE protecting and advancing for you.
