Alex realized it was time for a home security system when his neighbor’s house got broken into. Since then, he has tried to stay ahead of the curve by proactively applying security technologies and software that protect not only his home and family, but his personal identity, sensitive information, and finances. In his spare time, Alex’s tennis opponents are less concerned with security given the number of times his forehand finds the middle of the net. In the ocean, on the other hand, Alex could use protection as he frequently gets clobbered by the next big wave.
