Dallas-based StackPath has introduced a pair of programs that provide cloud security and delivery expertise to tech startups and developers.
The company said it offers a platform of secure internet services built at the cloud’s edge.
“The average life of a public company is 12 years. That means most companies were startups less than a few years ago,” founder, CEO, and chairman Lance Crosby said in a release. “Everyone has to start somewhere and, at StackPath, we believe that it is important to support the tech community, especially startups and developers.”

StackPath Propel is intended to engage and provide resources and mentorship to early and growth-stage startups in the tech arena, according to StackPath.
StackPath Amp, on the other hand, supports developers at all levels through education, communication, and support of open-source projects.
“We are security and content delivery experts so they don’t have to be,” he said.
Cloud edge computing has many advantages.
It allows data produced by internet of things devices to be processed nearer to where the data is created, allowing for analysis in near real-time.
The programs provide security and delivery expertise in a variety of ways — business and technical guides, hosting online communities and local meet-ups, and providing support and mentorship, according to the release.
“We are security and content delivery experts so they don’t have to be.”
James Leaverton, StackPath co-founder and vice president of ecosystem development, will oversee the new programs and has hired two industry experts for his team.
Joshua Krammes, vice president of engagement, will act as an adviser, mentor, and liaison for the startup community and StackPath Propel. While, Justin Johnson, director of developer relations, will lead StackPath Amp.
Earlier this year, the company acquired the Florida-based Highwinds content delivery network.
Crosby formerly headed SoftLayer Technologies which was sold in 2013 to IBM for $2 billion.
