About Us

About our company name Digital Machine Shop – Our founder, Tie Hoekstra, grew up in a small town, and like many small towns or rural areas, there was a machine shop in the middle of the center of commerce. Everyone from farmers to tradespeople, went to the trusted advisor at the local machine shop if they had an issue with their machinery. This machine shop usually had a "subject matter expert" who could not only fix your machine but always seemed to have great advice on the next steps to keep your equipment well maintained to ensure it would perform optimally for the long term. Continuing with the local machine shop heritage, Digital Machine Shop's objective is to become your "digital machine expert and advisor" for all your Information and cybersecurity needs.

Our founder, Tie, has an extensive background in information systems and security. After his systems were hacked in 1998, he made it a mission to ensure that others do not have to go through that experience! In 2002, Tie was awarded a US patent in firewall design that has been since referenced in over 52 other patents from marque companies such as Cisco and Microsoft. In 2018, Tie transitioned to a Consultant in the information/cybersecurity world.

One of Digital Machine Shop's principal goals is to assist companies move past the paralyzing "fear, uncertainty and doubt - FUD" of the increasing security issues and threats that seem to be pervasive in our vulnerable industry and present them with achievable solutions to protect their business environment.
