Our History

Net56 and its parent company, Koch Technologies, Inc. (“KTI”), have been providing clients with innovative technology solutions for over forty years. At its inception in 1980, KTI functioned primarily as a software research, design and development firm, creating systems that interfaced robotics with computerized manufacturing facilities. As the demand for both low‐level and high‐end software applications grew, KTI responded by developing turnkey applications for VARs and large-scale corporate users.

Developing device drivers for MS Windows and other environments was the next step in KTI’s evolution. From 1986 to 1994, KTI developed interfaces and drivers for Fortune 500 companies and other peripheral manufacturers.

In 1995, KTI formed Net56, a company dedicated to the creation and implementation of Intranets and Internet technology for home and business. Net56 has helped both individuals and companies increase productivity by providing them with secure, high-speed, dialup access to the Internet, dedicated access, and mission-critical hosting.

Today, Net56 focuses on managed IT services, network services, security services, cybersecurity governance services, Intranet, and internet technology for homes, businesses, organizations, and K-12 education.
