As an Internet services company dedicated to secure web and email hosting, Lux Scientiae ("Call us LuxSci for short!") Upholds five core values of electronic communications.
LuxSci is the brainchild of Erik Kangas, Ph.D., whose fascination with designing high-quality, detail-oriented web infrastructures led to the start up of his company in 1999. Erik chose the unusual name LuxSci, derived from the Latin "light of knowledge," to encapsulate his view of the importance of developing services that bring great clarity to resolving electronic communications problems, whether they relate to a healthcare practice that must abide by governmental requirements or a small business that wishes to design an email marketing campaign. LuxSci supports its customers with the most innovative products and services throughout the process.
As Erik himself says, "LuxSci has been tested through the boom and bust of Internet companies, several recessions, and the exponential growth of electronic communications. We have continued to grow and to prosper the entire time. We're small, nimble, and not beholden to the whims of investors. We have excellent employee retention and we love what we do."
LuxSci CEO: Erik Kangas, PhD
With more than 20 years engaged in to both academic research and software architecture, Erik Kangas brought the two strains of his analytical background together in 1999 as the founder of LuxSci, which provides elegant, efficient, and robust solutions for scalable email and Web hosting services, with a primary focus on the healthcare industry. Being chief architect and developer, Erik has "grown" LuxSci to become a well-respected name in the field of online security. In fact, Erik displayed his penchant for computers as a boy in Cleveland Ohio, where he began to teach himself programming languages Basic and Pascal in 5th grade, and moved on to Assembly language as a teenager. While still in high school, Erik won first place at the Ohio state science fair, for authoring a new programming language.
With undergraduate degrees in physics and mathematics from Case Western Reserve University in 1995, Erik was one of the youngest students to be admitted (in 1993), as a full collaborator in a large-scale high-energy physics experiment. Five years later he earned his doctoral degree in computational biophysics from MIT. At Akamai Technologies, Erik made significant contributions to architecting, developing, and maintaining various Web-based applications and services. As a visiting professor of physics at MIT, he collaborated on molecular dynamic simulations. In addition to his leadership of LuxSci, Erik is now technical advisor to the board of directors at Mediprocity, which specializes in mobile-centric, secure messaging. He advises the board and C-level management on issues related to architecture, security, HIPAA, and software optimization.
An international lecturer on messaging security, Erik also consults on email best practices, secure Web site architectures, and HIPAA compliance. Erik continues to advance the mission of LuxSci: to ensure that sensitive individual information online remains secure and private. When he does take time away from LuxSci, Erik participates in endurance sports and has completed one full Ironman triathlon, four Half Ironman triathlons, and numerous marathons in the US.
