About Us

New Directions Technologies, Inc. (NDTI), was founded and incorporated in the State of Delaware in 1994 by Cedric Knight, our CEO and a 20-year Navy Veteran. In 2011, our participation in the Veterans Administration’s Veteran-Owned, Small Business (VOSB) Verification Program, allowed NDTI to become one of the first Information Technology (IT) Small Businesses to be officially verified by the Center of Veterans Enterprise (CVE) as a Service Disabled Veteran Owned Small Business (SDVOSB).

Since our founding more than twenty-five years ago, NDTI has been single-minded about delivering high-quality services and solutions to our clients. From the outset, the company’s founder decided that information technology should be both a key capability and an integral part of company operations. Consequently, we have succeeded in building a significant reputation in delivering high-quality information technology services and solution to our customers. Worthy of note is our success operating and streamlining data center and desktop computer operations through the use of data center and desktop virtualization solutions. Always adaptable and forward-looking, when cybersecurity threats emerged as a key concern, NDTI evolved our offerings to include information assurance and cybersecurity services.

Today, our information assurance and cybersecurity capability are second to none. We have the ability to certify, accredit and secure large complex systems. We are also recognized for our ability to design and deploy large scale collaboration solutions as exemplified by the SharePoint solutions we developed and maintain for a key Homeland Security agency. Complementing our information technology credentials is a team of subject matter experts who are experienced former DoD acquisition professionals and warfighters from all military service branches.

Our commitment to the defense of our nation and the operational efficiency of our government are major factors that will continue driving our business strategy for the foreseeable future.
