Defense In Depth

BioAssured co-founder, Capt. Wes Naylor, PhD, USN Ret., the former commander of the Naval Air Warfare Center Training Systems Division and currently the director of the University of Central Florida’s Institute for Simulation and Training, was engaged by the United States Navy after the COVID-19 event on the USS Theodore Roosevelt in March 2020.

While exploring an effective solution to prevent the spread of COVID-19 and keep naval personnel safe on-board, Naylor utilized a defense in depth approach and assessed the carrier’s needs. He determined that if all objects could be decontaminated as they entered the vessel, combined with maintaining continuous surface and air sanitation, the virus could be reasonably contained and the protocol could drastically reduce the future spread of contaminants on the ship.

This experience inspired a better approach to addressing the unique challenges companies were facing with reopening phases. The defense in depth approach protocol that could work to protect USS Theodore Roosevelt could translate to any public space.

The vision for BioAssured was born.

Now expanding to address civilian interest, Naylor — along with co-founders Jason Eichenholz, PhD, and Angela Robbins —  began vetting technology and chemical solutions and sourcing established, market-tested virucidal and disinfecting products to rapidly deploy across various industries. This new Gold Standard for a cleaner world addresses the 360-degree approach needed to contain the spread of modern contagions.

There is no single magic bullet to eradicate viruses like coronavirus, however, BioAssured’s defense in depth is the most comprehensive, proactive approach to protecting your environment, your people, and your financial future.
