FirstLight has won a number of high-profile accounts in recent months, including Cabot Creamery, the Town of Bennington, and Tri-State Area Federal Credit Union.

The company also recently launched several new services now marketed to customers in Vermont, including a managed firewall service, a managed router service, and an encrypted wavelength solution.
