About Us

MadTek began in 2002 as a specialized hosting company providing customers with value added hosting services for open source platforms and online shopping carts. Not long after building a client base hosting multiple applications MadTek was propelled into the world of website cyber security helping clients manage the relentless onslaught of hackers seeking to exploit vulnerabilities.

The experience of managing and remediating compromised websites for over a decade led MadTek to develop in-house security tools that help owners detect suspicious behavior on their websites. Early detection and identification of a website intrusion has proven to be a powerful tool for protecting websites. Enabling website owners to identify the malicious files placed on their website by hackers is a first step toward secure recovery from a website breach.  The value of intrusion detection in the cyber security ecosystem has inspired MadTek to bring an innovative solution to website owners to add to their toolkit of defenses against cyber criminals and hackers.

In 2013 Ted Corvette joined Madtek founder, Jesse Eversole, and founded Madtek Associates, Inc. to acquire all of the assets of the original Madtek Associates Incorporated and re-position the company in the digital website security space.
