If RJS Smart Security employed “The Most Interesting Man in the World,” one could argue our very own Network Security Engineer, Leigh Reimers, just might fit the bill. Leigh is a black-belt karate master and former United States Army tough guy. A “jack-of-all-trades,” Leigh often assists with product installation and support on the off-chance he isn’t solving more complex security conundrums as a certified Sophos Advanced Sales and Technology Engineer.
