Arlo Solutions Founders Featured in Technical.ly

Washington, DC (August 25, 2021) – Arlo Solutions (Arlo) founders Lonye Ford and Arlene Wube were featured in a recent Technical.ly article about the company’s recent growth.

The article, written by Michaela Althouse, is titled, “After 7 Years of Bootstrapped Growth, Here’s What’s Next for Downtown DC Cybersecurity Firm Arlo Solutions.” Althouse focuses on the company’s evolution and its future. She notes that Arlo began in 2014 with only 5 employees. Today, the company has more than quadrupled its ranks, and in 2022 it hopes to employ 150 personnel.

Arlo was recently ranked #153 on the Inc. 5000 list of fastest growing private companies. For Lonye Ford, Arlo CEO, this achievement was exceptional for many reasons. She states in the article, “For us to see that type of growth and knowing that what we came in with… and we built on our own, even from a financial standpoint, is truly one of the reasons I think that makes this award of that recognition just so monumental to us… because that really is a big deal to see that much financial growth without any form of an investor.”

Arlo has established a unique focus on building partnerships with larger companies such as Booz Allen Hamilton, Accenture, and Verizon. Now, the company is looking forward to fulfilling its “Arlo 2.0” vision and obtaining more opportunities to leverage the advantages of being a small business.

Arlo has established a portfolio of technology projects for agencies including U.S. Air Force, U.S. Department of Agriculture and Office of the Undersecretary of Defense for Intelligence & Security. This year, Arlo added Stars III to its list of vehicles, which also includes GSA, SBA 8(a), VECTOR, SITE III, and CDM Analytical and Technical Services.
