LMNTRIX was founded by Carlo Minassian , a cybersecurity entrepreneur with over twenty years in the industry. Carlo pioneered MSSP in Australia after seeing a need in the market that few did. He left a secure future with IBM to start a business in his bedroom. He and his team were so far ahead of the curve they struggled at first. Thirteen years later this company, earthwave, had become a Gartner magic quadrant leader and was sold to Dimension Data. Carlo embarked on the journey to globalize the service he had created.
Yahoo, Target, Sony, RSA, Ebay, Anthem, the US Military, Heartland, Dropbox, JP Morgan Chase, Home Depot, Linkedin, Adobe, the NSA, and a thousand others that shall remain un-named, were investing millions of dollars per annum on their cyber security programs. Many had security forces of hundreds of experts together with shiny SOC’s and the latest next generation sandboxes, firewalls, SIEM’s, EDR, you name it, but when it mattered . . .

to them while they are busy doing something else, but not for us."
We believe that this approach to organizing LMNTRIX around the elements of the Company, its People, the relevant individual and corporate relationships and the work to be done is more sensible than retrofitting to a conventional organization structure. It has been effective in eradicating big company bureaucracy to a minimum while allowing us to continue to attract and maintain the best talent, engaging not only their minds but also their hearts.
Carlo Minassian is a widely recognized pioneer in information security, and a serial entrepreneur of security-as-a-service companies. Today Carlo is the founder and CEO of LMNTRIX, an innovative security company that integrates deep expertise with cutting-edge technology, leading intelligence, and advanced analytics to detect and investigate threats with great speed, accuracy, and focus. Carlo’s passion is the building of companies that deliver security as an outcome by unlocking the power of security technology combined with cloud solutions and deep security expertise.
Prior to founding LMNTRIX, Carlo was founder and CEO of the Gartner leading MSSP earthwave, where over a 13 year period he was responsible for the vision and growth of earthwave prior to its acquisition by Dimension Data. He joined Dimension Data as Group GM and later as Technical Director, and over the next 3 years globalized the earthwave capability prior to leaving Dimension Data in 2016 to startup LMNTRIX.
