Anvil Culture & Mission

Anvil was formed by industry veterans.  As we have grown, we have maintained a few basic principles: everyone is an owner, be professional, do good work, make whatever we touch more secure. It seems pretty simple, but we believe a professional consultancy that understands the role of security in a modern world and maintains high standards for quality and professionalism is novel for our industry.  We work with a lot of large, well known tech firms and some smaller firms with interesting technology challenges.   We work from the low level (hardware) through more procedural (software development lifecycle) work.
