Threats

CyberKnights’ business is occasionally threatened by larger outside forces. These include:

“A disgruntled ex-employee who was in charge of making sure we were Microsoft compliant turned us in to the Business Software Alliance,” [Ernie] Ball says. [...] “We were raided by armed Federal Marshals and completely shut down for a day. Then you have to swear you won't touch any data other than what is minimally necessary to run your business,” he says. “I don’t believe you should treat a customer that way.” [...] The company ended up paying a [USD]$90,000 settlement.

Ball [...] decided at that moment his company would become “Microsoft free.” According to Ball, “Everyone said we couldn’t do it. It took us about one year” [to convert to] a Linux-based network and UNIX mainframe.

“I haven’t had to buy XP, and I haven’t had to buy new computers.”
