Shield Networks Inc. is proud to be the collaborative result of a merger between three longtime I.T. managed service providers, achieving incorporated status in January 2015. Shield’s inception is rooted in a successful history of entrepreneurship shared between its three founding partners, Greg Kroeker, Tim Jordan, and Eddie Phillips. Each shareholder brings a wealth of independent, diverse professional experience in IT security solutions, integration, and management to Shield. The dedicated IT security teams they’ve joined together in this collective effort are experts in their respective fields.
At Shield, we are incredibly proud of where we came from. With an I.T. technology and support arsenal bolstered by the combined forces of three separate veteran companies and an expanded crew of talented technicians and engineers, we are excited to offer SonicWall exclusive Firewall Monitoring and Management to MSPs across Canada.
As always, our dedication to providing MSPs like yours with the simplest, outsourced Firewall As A Service is the driving force behind our corporate vision.
Greg Kroeker first established Genesis Networks in 2002, with the goal of providing his clients with quality business I.T. support and service. Greg was a pioneer in the provision of rural wireless technology, and one of the first broadband Internet service providers to bring wireless service to homes and businesses in the Red River Valley. In 2007, Greg moved I.T. services from Genesis into Stream Networks, Inc.
Tim Jordan formed Creosoft in 2005, and a few years later joined forces with Greg when he merged Creosoft with Stream Networks. Over the next few years, Tim and Greg acquired the business customer lists of several local I.T. service providers while growing Shield Networks Inc. in size and scope of services. In 2008, Eddie Phillips unknowingly began his eventual contribution to Shield when he started Rep4 in Selkirk, MB. A few years later, Eddie became the final part of the equation when he merged Rep4 with Shield in 2015.
Greg, Tim, and Eddie combined efforts to form Shield Networks Inc. Shield became an official corporation on January 1, 2015.
Everyone at Shield is proud of the individual accomplishments that predate our Shield Networks merger, and we eagerly look forward to exceeding our clients’ expectations in the future.
