Cyber security firm moves to Columbia from Glen Burnie

Convergence Technology Consulting relocated its office to Columbia, almost doubling the space it occupies, the Howard County Economic Development Authority announced Monday.

The cyber security firm leased nearly 8,000 square feet in Columbia Gateway Business Park. Previously, its office was in Glen Burnie.

Convergence Technology employs 65 people and plans for more expansion over the next few years. The firm generated $30 million in revenue last year and expects to double that in a several years, said Howard County Executive Ken Ulman in a statement welcoming the firm.

The firm recently launched a new software product called Intelligent ID that helps secure an organizations' business assets by continuously monitoring and alerting management to suspect activity from laptops, desktops, tablets or smartphones. It looks for data loss/theft, compliance infractions, workplace liability, and inefficient use of time and resources.

Convergence CEO Larry Letow said the move will help the company continue to grow.

"As a Howard County resident I was well aware of the advantages of living in the county, and with our business growing it made good business sense to move closer to our clients by locating the company here as well," Letow said in a statement.
