Firma IT Solutions was started by community leader and US Air Force Veteran, Certified Ethical Hacker and Network Defense Architect, Rodney Gullatte, Jr. When the job market would not cooperate in Key West, FL, he decided to take matters into his own hands and start a business. With a background in Information Technology and Cybersecurity that includes Department of Defense, retail, healthcare, casinos, utility companies and more, Rodney has developed a company that brings enterprise technology solutions to small businesses. Law firms, accounting firms, architect firms, museums, and marinas are just a few of the clients that Firma IT Solutions has transformed. From workstations and servers to cybersecurity and enterprise wireless networks, Firma IT Solutions has a wide scope of services to create data integrity and system security that all small businesses desperately need. The company started in Key West and thrived there four years before Rodney’s wife received military orders to Colorado Springs. As a leader in the Key West community, Firma IT Solutions has grown since Rodney left in August 2015 to come to Colorado Springs. Now Rodney has established himself in Colorado Springs as a member of the Southern Colorado Women’s Chamber of Commerce, President of BNI Strategic Alliances Chapter, Board of Rotary District 5470 as Public Image Chair, Board of Rotary Club of Colorado Springs as Director of Local Community Service Projects and Service Fund Trustee. He is also proud member of Colorado Springs Chapter of The eWomen’s Network.
His latest accomplishments are becoming a Cybersecurity Consultant for the Pikes Peak Small Business Development Center, Board Member with the Better Business Bureau of Southern Colorado, winner of Colorado Springs Business Journal Best in Business 2017 #1 Cybersecurity Company and recipient of the Colorado Springs Business Journal Rising Stars Class of 2018 award. Rodney leverages his multiple affiliations to help grow his sphere of influence to help others succeed. This philosophy of “Givers Gain” has brought him success in business and among the community. He believes that educating the business community about cybersecurity will help create a CyberSafe Community which is a program his company sponsors with our local Fox21 News.
