Our History

January 18, 2000
The Beginning
David (then 22) founded Insane Technologies after obtaining a contract to support a Gold Coast superannuation administration firm. The firm had been plagued with viruses and David was engaged to clean the environment and implement new servers and security.

Village Roadshow Studios
Through a series of projects for Village Roadshow Theme Parks, Insane Technologies was contracted to build a web portal for then Movie World Studios. This engagement turned into the development of our proprietary Network Access Control (NAC) solution "NetShepherd" - which allowed studio administration to securely manage the network for film & tv productions working out of the facility.

Cyber Insurance Industry
As a by-product of the exposure created by the Australian Computer Society award, we were introduced to the cyber insurance industry. This lead to an engagement by a major UK based insurer to provider cyber incident response services to their Australian insured as part of a "follow the sun" panel of cyber experts.
