What’s in a Name? MRK Technologies Rebrands to Become Inversion6


William Shakespeare eloquently asked in Romeo and Juliet: “What’s in a name? that which we call a rose By any other name would smell as sweet.”

In today’s industry news post, we ask and answer this question relating to a well-known and highly respected cybersecurity risk management provider that has changed its moniker from MRK Technologies to Inversion6. Unlike a rose by any other name, in this case, there are meaning and indications of more good things to come in this name change. 

According to Matt Kennedy, President of Inversion6, the Inversion6 name is derived from two main factors that separate the company from other cybersecurity firms. The first is an inverted thinking approach that looks at a situation or problem from different angles and the six commitments that Inversion6 fosters with its customers.

“As an industry, if we want to truly stay ahead of the threats and have better, more secure outcomes, we must dare to think differently,” Matt said. “Inverted thinking is core to succeeding in security—thinking like the bad actors, trying new methods and solutions, and embracing cloud. At Inversion6, we’re committed to partnering with organizations to ensure their cybersecurity program stays ahead of the threats.”

The company will roll out the branding in the coming weeks without changing its existing services. As a part of the new brand identity, the company will debut a new logo and website. Inversion6 is also rolling out a new tagline that aligns with its renewed mission: Eliminate Reactive.

In response to accelerated company growth and the development of its talented team of experts, Inversion6 will expand on its legacy of cybersecurity risk management, managed security services, expert CISO security services, network solutions, security products, and storage solutions for large and mid-size companies. 

“MRK’s commitment to high standards and performance within our cybersecurity offerings has enabled us to earn and retain an incredible base of customers—many of whom continue to add to the breadth of the services they’re trusting MRK to deliver upon,” said John Tookman, Chief Revenue Officer at Inversion6. “Our new name and brand are a reflection of that same commitment and an unyielding approach to helping companies stay ahead of the always-on, threat landscape. With the unprecedented amount of security breaches in the past 24 months, we are keenly focused on shifting the responsive nature of our industry and working with clients to help them ‘Eliminate Reactive.'”

As it expands its footprint and offerings in the cybersecurity space, Inversion6 will retain its established client base and aim for new market expansion as it doubles down on managed IT security services.
