Drum-roll, please ....................................................

Denver Tech Labs has become Enspherics. Tag line, "The New Science of
Security". Website is http://www.enspherics.com/ of course, but there's
not much there yet except the logo. I wish you could see the business
cards. The encapsulated S bulges out. It's really swell. The old
http://www.denvertechlabs.com/ site has more background, for all of you
bit sponges.

The concept behind the name is to free the bits to go where they're
needed, properly wrapped for safety. Not a new idea to most of you, but
where the fun is for much of the old economy. Not that we're stuck
there. Our customers range from buttoned down bankers to zipped up
Antarctic researchers.

I can't take any credit for the new name (my own brother wouldn't even
leak it to me ;-) -- It's the work of our brother-in-law, a former
Disney marketeer. You will have seen his work in the Lion King home
video packaging, e.g. By comparison, check out Andersen Consulting's
new name: Accenture. It means 'putting an accent on the future', but
it sounds like 'ax censure'? Or 'act sent yer'? I like ours better.

One other plus to the new name, I can't find any really bad anagrams.
Or even many good ones. Here's my top ten list:

10. Spec-shrine
9. PC sirens, eh?
8. Press niche.
7. Ship screen.
6. Reshine PCs.
5. Chirps seen.
4. P/E richness
3. Spheres, Inc.
2. Spins cheer.
1. Cipherness

Business is good, and we are definitely hiring sharp technical types.

We also have a new equity partner, Ciber. Here's their press release:

Press Release

CIBER Expands High-Level Security Services Through
Equity Stake

(NYSE:CBR - news) today announced its acquisition of a 51 percent equity
interest in network security specialist Enspherics(SM) to broaden
CIBER's mission-critical security service offerings.

Enspherics, formerly Denver Tech Labs, will help CIBER expand its
international security expertise with Enspherics' proven high-end
security technology consultants skilled in the government, transaction
processing and health care sectors. Terms of the agreement, which are
expected to be effective November 15, were not disclosed.

Enspherics provides custom designed security solutions for a variety of
clients who operate in high-risk, high-threat and high-profile
environments through responsive, specialized teams of talented
technologists. Enspherics, based in Englewood, Colo., was incorporated
as Denver Technological Laboratories, Inc. in 1992 to evaluate the
security of computer systems for the U.S. Government. Since then,
Enspherics has designed and deployed mature and comprehensive
IT security solutions primarily for large systems in the financial
services, telecommunications and aerospace/defense sectors. The
company's major customers include First Data, Bank of America, Raytheon,
Lockheed Martin, IBM, and multiple government agencies including NASA,
the Pentagon, Internal Revenue Service and the Federal Bureau of

Enspherics employs about 30 consultants with a demonstrated track record
in providing security audits, security policy documentation and virus
services, including detection of attempts to break through firewalls.
Enspherics intends to grow the beachheads that it has established in
Chicago, Wilmington, Del., San Francisco and Dallas [this was supposed
to be Austin - WB], in addition to the company's potential for
additional expansion into other markets. Its web site is

CIBER offers thought leadership and execution services in the burgeoning
information technology (IT) services market. Enspherics expands CIBER's
cadre of network consultants, and provides new skills and service
offerings to pursue security opportunities in key vertical markets.
Working together this year, CIBER and Enspherics have already been
awarded two multi-million dollar wins in the financial industry and a
new federal government security contract. In one instance, a joint
project includes not only the Internet and terrestrial network
infrastructure, but also encrypted satellite technology as a key element
of the security solution.

``Enspherics is led by people who understand critical ways to fortify
firewall security as well as perform security audits and establish
security policies - all aimed at ensuring secure operations of leading
companies and their customers,'' said Mac Slingerlend, President and
Chief Executive Officer, CIBER. ``We are excited about their depth of
expertise and opportunities for new project work in the critical
security field, the fastest growing area within infrastructure services.
After all, security breaches destroy confidence in e-business and
privacy, at a minimum, in the information age economy.''

Enspherics will maintain its current management, which includes Mark
Baisley, President; Dean Weiner, Executive Vice President - Engineering;
and Ed Bassett, Executive Vice President - Technology.

``In order to fully scale the rollout of Enspherics from the origins of
Denver Tech Labs, we needed a partner company with mature processes and
a global reach that could fund our mission and growth. CIBER is the
perfect match, as they also bring complementary technical expertise, a
strong name and an international customer base,'' said Baisley.

CIBER, Inc. is the trusted technology leader transforming businesses to
be agile, scalable and connected. Backed by 27 years of information
technology consulting, CIBER provides thought leadership in Internet
solutions to Global 2000 and rapidly scaling companies and governments
through its National Practices - Strategy and Enterprise Integration,
