Based in the Greater Phoenix area, Alex Artamonov is a systems engineer and cybersecurity specialist now in his 10th year with Infinitely Virtual. Skilled in VMware ESX, Microsoft Server and desktop operating systems, HP Proliant, and HP blade servers, Artamonov holds a series of cybersecurity certifications from the University of Washington.
Artamonov first got hooked on computing at age 13. Having broken a machine in the early going, he set about fixing it and, as Infinitely Virtual customers can attest, the rest is history. While in ninth grade, he helped his local library organize its first Internet-connected PCs for public use. Growing up in an era of 14.4kbps modems, Artamonov taught himself computer security through trial and error, relying heavily on underground online forums, magazines and groups. He remains a voracious consumer of information on cybersecurity, with a special emphasis on social engineering.
