Encryption Security Solutions hires 4, looks to add 2 more

Encryption Security Solutions is creating jobs as a means to an end of retaining and creating even more employment here.

The
Lake Orion-based firm has added four positions in the last year,
including two recent hires, bringing its staff to seven people. It
plans to hire two more within the next 60-90 days to help deal with its
increasing work load.

The 4-year-old firm is helping manufacturers learn the ropes of becoming a government contractor by complying with the International Traffic in Arms Regulations.
That allows them to begin taking orders for defense and homeland
security sectors. The state is subsidizing two thirds ($4,600) of the
cost of this training to help keep more manufacturing jobs here.

“When we were kids we were told Michigan is the Arsenal of Democracy,” says Kevin Lasser, CEO of Encryption Security Solutions. “This is helping us be that again.”

The company specializes in digital security and has a subsidiary called Pure Entropy Technologies that deals with many government contracts.
