After several years of researching the world's internet traffic patterns, our MM-7 Labs discovered a unique set of testing models that led to the creation of our many different computer products & services. If it's connected to technology, we can provide assistance. Since the late 1990s, Mica Specialties has been deep in the design and development of all things technically related to the web. This journey helped us create many unique tools & resources for our internal use, and for those of our clients.
Our MM7 Labs provided extensive product research and validation for computer hardware and software, and it paved the way for our software, too. Currently, MM7 Labs is for our internal use only. Please take look at the many useful resources and articles by CERT. We have learned a whole lost from them over the past decade and continue to study up regularly.
