Savannah Business Journal Staff Report

April 25, 2018 - EDTS Cyber, LLC, a privately held Managed Security Services Provider, recently announced that TaxSlayer, LLC, a leading online and professional tax and financial technology company, has selected EDTS Cyber to provide additional best-in-class protection against fraud and cyber threats for customers. The alliance adds EDTS Cyber’s advanced security analytics, threat hunting services and 24x7 security monitoring and analysis to TaxSlayer’s leading security stack.

The agreement brings together two leaders of the growing cyber community in Augusta, Georgia, which also includes Fort Gordon, home of the U.S. Cyber Center of Excellence, an NSA installation; Army Cyber Command Home; and the Augusta University Cyber Institute.

“Augusta is becoming known as the Silicon Valley of the Southeast. TaxSlayer and EDTS Cyber’s roots have been in this community since inception. This partnership will help expand technology and cyber opportunities here and help protect clients across the U.S. By creating jobs, assisting with workforce development and building industry alliances, we are at the start of many great things to come,” said Charles Johnson, founder and CEO of EDTS Cyber.

“We are excited to be part of the technology surge both in Augusta and across the Southeast. We believe two industry leaders headquartered only blocks from each other working together for the benefit of our customers and our industries will put us at a unique advantage over the competition,” said Brian Rhodes, President and CEO of TaxSlayer.

Delano Collins, CIO of EDTS Cyber added, “There are a lot of companies that say they offer Cyber or IT security, often taking advantage of the lack of understanding in the marketplace. With today’s more sophisticated attacks, it takes a comprehensive offering to protect business data. TaxSlayer is a leader in their field and we are excited that, after their thorough vetting process, they recognize that EDTS Cyber has not only leading technology, but some of the most qualified and talented cyber professionals.  We are very excited to explore other opportunities to expand our partnership to benefit both organizations and our community.”
