We’re incredibly excited to put the cybersecurity experience we've gained supporting the U.S. Intelligence community to work

root9B, an information security leader and provider of advanced cyber operations, training, and consulting services, has hired strategic communications firm ADG Creative as its agency of record. This signifies a key addition to the agency’s established national defense and technology-driven client base (OTCMKTS: RTNB).

root9B's proprietary suite of cybersecurity services and products requires precise brand language and communications strategies to portray its value in today’s network security marketplace. root9B will be looking to Columbia, MD-based ADG for branding, marketing, design, and content solutions that represent root9B's unique offerings and unwavering commitment to network defense and education.

“We’re incredibly excited to put the cybersecurity experience we've gained supporting the U.S. Intelligence community to work in the burgeoning commercial marketplace,” said ADG’s Chief Creative Officer Jeff Antkowiak. “With the many recent high-profile cyber attacks on major U.S. corporations, it is evident that the threat is growing. root9B’s focus on active HUNT techniques sets them apart, and we're excited to work with them as they grow their business.”

“Our cybersecurity strategy represents a new evolution in the commercial space,” said root9B CEO Eric Hipkins. “Our story must position our unique capabilities while helping us educate business leaders on the evolving cyber landscape. With ADG's strong background in strategic communications for the Intelligence Community combined with their brand building experience in the commercial sector, they’re the perfect fit for what we must accomplish.”

2015 marks a significant year of growth for root9B as it has expanded its client base, strengthened its leadership and operations teams, and launched an enhanced cybersecurity product suite. This summer, the first-of-its-kind Adversary Pursuit Center (APC) will be fully operational, serving as the nerve center of root9B’s manned cybersecurity 24/7/365 HUNT operations.

ADG will provide a range of creative services for root9B, including branding, content strategy, website development, and various content marketing efforts aimed at sharing root9B’s insight and experience with cybersecurity professionals and the business community.
