LeadingIT Teams Up with Extra Life to Raise Money for Sick Children

CHICAGO, Ill. -- LeadingIT, a Chicagoland technology and cybersecurity support company, has teamed up with Extra Life to raise money for hospitals that treat sick or injured children.

Each year, the IT company's team sets their fundraising goals and invites sponsors and donors to help them hit their targets as they participate in marathon gaming sessions organized by Extra Life. This year, the LeadingIT team has already surpassed its goal of contributing $1,000, raising an impressive $2,285 after a strong start to 2020. This number is expected to increase even further with more gaming events scheduled this year.

About Extra Life

Extra Life is a unique initiative that brings thousands of gaming enthusiasts together to play marathon sessions of their favorite games and raise funds to help their local hospital registered under the Children's Miracle Network (*note 1). Since its launch in 2008, the Extra Life nonprofit has raised more than $70 million for sick and injured children. Extra Life lets gamers who would typically play on their own come together to have fun at an Extra Life United event or smaller events held by Guilds, with giant live stream marathons.

At the same time, Extra Life helps people become more aware of the critical issues that the Children's Miracle Network is doing and offers them the chance to raise the money that their local children's hospital needs.

Extra Life's Achievements

Since its inception in 2008, Extra Life, through its association with the Children's Miracle Network, has raised over $70 million dollars to benefit 170 hospitals for sick and injured kids in the U.S. and Canada. The donations made by gamers on the platform stay local and provide funding for healthcare services, research, pediatric medical equipment, and essential treatments that member hospitals need.

Today, Extra Life's most important initiative is a COVID-19 Impact Fund that aims to help hospitals caring for affected children to close the gap between their existing resources and what they need, and LeadingIT is honored to involved and an active participant in the cause.

LeadingIT's Community Involvement

LeadingIT's involvement in Extra Life supports their core value of community and the need to give back. The company considers themselves an extension of their clients and is honored to promote and support their community. Collectively, over the past several years of teaming up with Extra Life, LeadingIT has raised and donated over $10,000.

Anyone who wants to join the team can support LeadingIT's selected charity, the Lurie Children's Hospital. Alternatively, LeadingIT team members can also choose to specify a different organization where they want the funds they raise to go.

LeadingIT Celebrates 10 Years of Service in Chicagoland

CHICAGO, Ill. -- LeadingIT, a friendly technology and cybersecurity support firm, started with no clients and zero dollars. For the first 8-10 months, Stephen Taylor, our CEO, worked on reaching out to as many people as possible, offering and telling them what he could do. The few who saw value in our offerings signed up as clients. With sheer determination and dedication, he spent the first year trying to build the business.

Our official start date was October 15, 2010, and we have experienced steady growth since our establishment. Currently, we serve 2,800 end users from our 90 regular clients. Stephen Taylor currently relies on his team to enable and empower him to do more. With our 10th anniversary coming up on October 15, 2020, we look at the steps we've taken in service delivery.

The Major Impact Factor

Looking back over the last ten years, Stephen Taylor believes that hard work and dedication have fueled much of our success. Entrepreneurs should learn how to level up themselves and get out of their comfort zone to achieve their goals. Business owners who try to manage everything in their businesses can quickly become a stumbling block to their success.

Stephen Taylor has delegated most roles and gotten out of the way, showing immense trust in his team's ability and judgment. Thanks to his team, he can focus more on the company's bigger vision as they take care of the technical roles and the daily tasks. Taking risks and doing things that challenge you can also make a difference as an entrepreneur.

National Cybersecurity Awareness Month

We're also excited to share our anniversary alongside National Cybersecurity Awareness Month (NCSAM), which is in its 17th year of existence. According to CISA.gov(*Note 1), this year's theme, "Do Your Part. #BeCyberSmart," encourages organizations to become intentional about enhancing cybersecurity. NCSAM emphasizes that individuals should take personal responsibility in protecting their cyberspace.

Company Values

LeadingIT has made considerable strides in our business operations while holding fast to company values. The core values that inform our brand include:
* We get IT done
* We foster community
* We constantly improve
* We create happy clients

Our Services

Partnering with us offers a host of benefits, including:
* Fast and friendly support: Our responsive tech experts resolve issues in real-time, preventing untimely downtime that can hamper your team's productivity.
* All-inclusive: Nonprofits, religious organizations, schools, manufacturers, law offices, and accounting firms can reach out to us for 24/7, all-inclusive tech and cybersecurity support.
* Cybersecurity: Count on us to secure your organization from evolving cybersecurity threats and to help you proactively prevent data loss and ransomware. Trust us to help you maintain industry best practices and put hurdles on the path of cyberattacks.

Developing Future Leaders

LeadingIT cares about the next generation of IT professionals and offers a scholarship for IT students at McHenry Community College. The scholarship helps to create substantial career opportunities as we work to close the talent gap. Two IT students benefit from our $250 scholarship every year, one in fall and the other during spring. With these scholarship funds, students can pay for their tuition fees and buy relevant books. Interested applicants can visit the McHenry County College Foundation Scholarship Program website to apply before the set deadlines.

Giving Back to The Community

Every year, LeadingIT takes part in Extra Life (*Note 2), a nonprofit organization that collects funds for a local children's hospital. You can play games on their website, then collect and earn pledges that go to charity. Extra Life has raised over $70 million since its inception in 2008. Now, they are running the COVID-19 Impact Fund for sick and injured kids.

Core Catalysts Announces Partnership to Launch New Service of Solving Cloud Sprawl

KANSAS CITY, Mo. -- Consulting firms Core Catalysts and Smart Factory have announced a new partnership. In response to a significant increase in demand by their Healthcare, Finance, Insurance, and Manufacturing clients, the two companies have teamed up to create a new line of service targeted at solving cloud sprawl. Cloud sprawl can lead to unnecessary spending, inefficient resource controls, and inadequate security and compliance within an organization, and many businesses become subject to cloud sprawl due to a lack of visibility and management of their cloud services.

Numerous companies today are shifting their focus to the cloud and using platforms such as Amazon Web Services (AWS) and Microsoft Azure. These platforms often add unexpected complexity to already overworked technology departments.

"Our clients have seen an alarming increase in computer storage costs and security risks, and they often times require more specialized people to manage configurations and approvals," said Jim Wadella, Managing Member of Core Catalysts.

Cloud platforms often offer "quick fixes" that fail to address underlying issues, and the result is more spend for software enhancements and a growing lack of visibility over time. This makes it difficult for an organization to control cloud costs, resources, and security and compliance, which all contribute directly to the success and direction of a company.

"This new offering is in direct response to an issue we've seen across all of our clients," said Doug Richards, CEO of Smart Factory. "The add-to-cart functionality of the AWS and Azure consoles makes it too easy for IT staff to subscribe to products that start off at pennies but can quickly spiral into thousands of dollars a month."

With Core Catalysts and Smart Factory's new partnership, they commit to solving companies' cloud sprawl. Whether it is a one-time diagnostic or ongoing cloud management, their services deliver easy-to-understand, proven, diagnostic data and processes to reestablish control. Their user-friendly platform makes onboarding easy to quickly gain relevant insights for effective decision-making and continuous improvement to cloud management. As a result, organizations can expect full visibility, immediate financial impacts, and leading practices for security and compliance.

For more information, please visit the partner website: https://www.corecatalysts.com/cloud-solutions/

About Core Catalysts

Core Catalysts is a Management Consulting firm based in Kansas City that serves clients across the U.S. in various industries. Core Catalysts provides services such as Process Improvement, Product/Service Commercialization, Revenue Enhancement, Financial Modeling, Program/Project Management, Software Selection, Enterprise Risk Management and Business Performance Improvement through a team that is composed of results-oriented individuals.

DISA Awards By Light Team $198.9M Cloud-Based Internet Isolation Production OTA

MCLEAN, Va. -- By Light Professional IT Services LLC has been awarded a $198.9M, 5-year production Other Transaction Agreement (OTA) by the Defense Information Systems Agency (DISA) for the Cloud-Based Internet Isolation (CBII) Program. By Light as the prime contractor for this OTA, with teammate Menlo Security, Inc., are together delivering this next-generation Isolation Platform to protect Department of Defense (DoD) networks worldwide.

Beginning in March 2019, By Light and Menlo worked closely with the DISA CBII Program Management Office (PMO) to design and implement the CBII prototype capability which eliminates most web-based threats such as drive-by-downloads. This technology removes the browsing process from the desktop and moves it to the cloud, effectively creating an "air gap" between the internet and enterprise networks. The successful implementation of this effort will directly enhance military and civilian personnel's ability to defend the DoD Information Network (DODIN).

According to Bob Donahue, By Light CEO, "This win culminates more than 18 months of working closely with Menlo, DISA, and its Mission Partners to shape the commercial application of Menlo's Global Cloud Secure Web Gateway (SWG) to improve DoD's information security posture for those entities conducting business across the Internet. Our CBII solution improves the security posture of the network, will scale to meet DoD needs, is easy to deploy and manage, and optimizes and reduces bandwidth - thereby extending the life of the network."

"This isolation technology allows enterprises to separate their network from the public web while providing users seamless access to the internet with a native browser experience," says Joe Boyd, By Light VP and CBII Program Manager. "Within the cloud native architecture, all components scale horizontally. You couple this with global availability, anytime/anywhere access, always-on cloud with failover between regions, instant on-boarding of users, 24x7x365 operations support, and what you get is an enterprise-class cybersecurity capability virtually eliminating internet browsing threats traversing the Internet Access Points (IAPs) while also optimizing and reducing bandwidth utilization."

"We're truly humbled to partner with By Light on this groundbreaking program with DISA," said Poornima DeBolle, Chief Product Officer, Menlo Security. "Our partnership with the By Light team and the CBII Program Management Office (PMO) is a true testament to the value of the Menlo Security 'Isolation Core' architecture to deliver on their security and scalability needs to help defend the users of the DoD Information Network (DODIN)."

Methodology

The 2020 Inc. 5000 is ranked according to percentage revenue growth when comparing 2016 and 2019. To qualify, companies must have been founded and generating revenue by March 31, 2016. They had to be U.S.-based, privately held, for profit, and independent-not subsidiaries or divisions of other companies-as of December 31, 2019. (Since then, a number of companies on the list have gone public or been acquired.) The minimum revenue required for 2016 is $100,000; the minimum for 2019 is $2 million. As always, Inc. reserves the right to decline applicants for subjective reasons. Companies on the Inc. 500 are featured in Inc.'s September issue. They represent the top tier of the Inc. 5000, which can be found at http://www.inc.com/inc5000.
