Research and Development

TRUE Change

Innovation is the heartbeat that leads us forward. As a team of passionate, creative IT and information security professionals, we are guiding the convergence of IT Governance, IT Security, and Secure IT Delivery to empower our clients. Leading this industry revolution requires vision and skill - two attributes we have refined over a long history of excellence.


TRUE IT, formerly SLPowers, was a pioneer in the Managed IT services space, launching a managed services platform in late 1999, which led to being awarded an Industry Contribution Award by CompTIA, the Computing Technologies Industry Association.  

More recently, we have applied our innovative spirit to driving advancement in the areas of information security, IT governance, and regulatory compliance. We were awarded a Oklahoma Center for the Advancement of Science & Technology (OCAST) Oklahoma Applied Research Support (OARS) for the development of a Tokenization platform that culminated in the spin-off of a successful sister company, TokenEx. We were then awarded another OARS grant to support our research into enabling organizations' governance, risk, and compliance (GRC) efforts to succeed through a platform that provides real-time insight into their security program. Other indicators of our success in changing the landscape of information security include a Department of Homeland Security Science and Technology (DHS S&T) Broad Agency Announcement (BAA) grant along with numerous publications, conference speaking invitations, and OCAST internship awards.


At TRUE, the only status quo with which we are comfortable is our continual commitment to excellence. As our mission states, our goal is to "make a difference in how our clients secure, govern and manage their connected enterprise." We are passionate about this goal, which drives us to share the fruits of these efforts whenever we have the opportunity.
