A Rochester business owner who founded his information technology company a quarter century ago received a prestigious certification.

The International Systems Security Certification Consortium awarded Ken Michael accreditation as a certified information systems security professional.

The Dox Electronics founder and vice president credits his 'people' for making the business a success.

"We have the highest-trained engineers around," Michael said. "There's someone gone every three weeks for education somewhere in the country. We're technologists."

Dox specializes in networking, storage, remote access, and IP telephony.

"This is a phone system with integrated voicemail to your desktop," said Dave Passafiume, senior networking engineer. "A call center application gets pop-ups where call center workers can see who's calling in. It's pretty elaborate. It's not a call system for everyday use."

"We're the value added reseller," Michael said. "We sell solutions. Manufacturers sell hardware. We sell solutions. We have to take their hardware, match it up to what the customer is looking for, create the solution, get it deployed, train the people how to use it, and do the knowledge transfer."

Michael said the key to Dox Electronics' customer satisfaction is extensive in-house testing before a system even heads off-site.

"When we go through a project, we know exactly what we have to do. We have a timeline, a game plan, a statement of work. So it's very detailed, very orchestrated."

That attention to detail has helped Dox Electronics grow across New York, with the latest growth spurt happening in Albany.

"We just finished a job for the Department of Health," Michael said. We've got jobs going on for a large lumber company. We're growing phenomenally in the Albany area."

But Michael said he's proud to have run a homegrown business for over 25 years.

"I started here in Rochester and as all the branches are growing and adding people, you never know where the headquarters are going to be in the future. But for right now, it's in Rochester."

ROCHESTER — Dox Electronics, Inc. announced that Ken Michael, the company's founder and vice president, has received accreditation as a Certified Information Systems Security Professional (CISSP), a prestigious certification governed by the International Systems Security Certification Consortium (ISC)2.

Approved by the Department of Defense in its Information Assurance Technical and Managerial categories, the CISSP program earned the ANSI ISO/IEC 17024:2003 accreditation in 2004, the first IT certification of its kind to do so. CISSP is also recognized by the National Security Agency as the baseline for its own information systems security program.

With more than 50,000 credentialed security professionals in 120 countries, (ISC)2 is recognized around the world as the gold standard for certifying information security professionals.

Michael is a resident of Sodus.

Company keeps clients connected

Company keeps clients connected

(October 7, 2007) — E-mail is money to engineering firm Erdman Anthony.

"Every transaction between our company and our clients depends on our e-mail being up 24/7," said Paul Strassner, information technology manager.

Since conked-out e-mail — due to a power outage or natural disaster — is potentially lost business, Dox Electronics Inc. engineer Vadim Avetisyan's work station was covered last week with electronic gear, paperwork and CD-ROMs. On a cart sat big boxes of electronic gear to be set up at Erdman Anthony's Rochester corporate office to run its e-mail system, plus a backup system for Erdman's Harrisburg, Pa., office.

Companies around New York state have Dox-built systems running their computer networks. Rochester-based Dox is a computer consulting and design firm that puts together security-based and storage-based networks and computer systems for public and private clients in industries from manufacturing to financial services.

The hardware and software comes from various vendors, with Dox engineers customizing it for clients.

"If we do our job properly, you don't even know we're there," said Vice President Ken Michael.

Michael in 1982 founded Dox, with the name alluding to medical doctors. And from its modest beginnings in his parents' basement in Irondequoit, Dox moved to a three-car garage, then locations on Andrews Street and Portland Avenue before landing in 28,000 square feet on College Avenue on the city's east side 12 years ago.

In the beginning, Michael's one-man operation serviced programmable calculators, computers and even early automated teller machines.

"I was going around to businesses, handing out my business card, a lot of cold calling," Michael said.

The company today employs 40 across its sites in Rochester, Buffalo, Syracuse and Albany, though much of the prep work and setup for a job will be done at the Rochester location before being shipped.

"You've got customers who want to make sure you're there, local to their environment, on site within a couple of hours," said Michael, who runs the company with his wife, Ruth Michael, who is the president. He declined to release the firm's revenues.

Each job is 80 percent preparation and design and 20 percent actually installing it and training the new owners, Michael said.

The Erdman Anthony job involved a couple of months of design work, figuring out what fit what the client wanted, he said.

Erdman Anthony has used Dox in the past as a consultant on technology questions, which is why it landed the new e-mail server job. "We've got a consistent, positive track record with them," Strassner said.
