The term ‘Windward’ refers to the nautical requirement to always be aware of the direction and strength of the wind, especially when racing or maneuvering a sailing ship. During the days of classic naval warfare, the windward vessel was always more maneuverable, thus, entering the battle from the windward direction gained an important tactical advantage over the opposing warship. Windward provides our clients with the ‘windward’ advantage by using IT as a strategic and tactical advantage in the marketplace.

Since our inception, Windward has supported over 500 clients around the globe with more than 2000 projects. With initial roots in the Communications Service Provider sector, Windward has diversified to provide solutions to commercial sectors such as Financial Services and other large enterprises.

In 2001, Windward was selected by a member of the intelligence community to bring commercial best practices to the Federal Government. Since then Windward has grown a significant presence within the Federal Government and continues to provide innovative solutions to the Department of Defense, Intelligence Community, and other civilian agencies.
