Kastle Systems International uses more than a moat and a fire-breathing dragon to keep your business domain secure. The company is a leading provider of outsourced electronic access control and security services, including design, installation, and maintenance, for office buildings and tenant spaces through offices in the US and Australia. Its 24-hour monitoring operations keep tabs on alarms, unauthorized building access, and system tampering at more than 1,700 properties. Kastle Systems serves both private businesses and government clients. Former CEO Gene Samburg, who served with the US Secret Service, founded Kastle Systems in 1972. Venture capitalist and entrepreneur Mark Ein controls the company.
Ein purchased the once family-owned business in 2007 with plans to invest in efforts to expand the business both domestically and internationally. The following year, fellow Washington entrepreneur Piyush Sodha was brought in as CEO. – less
