Digital Forensics Professionals Inc., a provider of computer investigative services, today announced it has changed its name to Avansic.
The change follows a recent announcement that Avansic secured a $1 million investment to launch the company into several metropolitan areas across the country. The expansion will provide the business and legal communities with proven procedures to investigate, monitor and retrieve information from electronic devices. In addition, Avansic will launch a complete rebranding of its company later this fall.
Avansic also named members of its first board of directors. James C. McGill, chairman of the board for MacroSolve Inc. and a member of The University of Tulsa board of trustees, will serve as chairman of the board. Additional board members include Joel B. Kantor, managing partner for Mimosa Tree Capital; P. Vincent LoVoi, managing partner for Mimosa Tree Capital; and Manes.
Avansic’s team of experts possesses more than 40 years of combined experience and holds certifications from a variety of institutions, including the American College of Forensic Examiners, the Committee on National Security Systems and the National Information Assurance Education and Training Program. The company’s founder, Manes, received the 2007 Young Entrepreneur of the Year Award from the Metropolitan Tulsa Chamber of Commerce.
