In 2004, Mr. Swartz was hired by Trusted Computer Solutions, Inc. (now Raytheon) and led the trusted application development laboratory in San Antonio, Texas. Mr. Swartz directed his team of highly-skilled secure systems engineers in the design, development, and deployment of several complex Secure Linux (SELinux) commercial cross-domain software products supporting the U.S. Air Force, Army, Navy and other U.S. Intelligence Community (IC) organizations.
In 2009 Mr. Swartz was promoted to Regional Director, Professional Services at Trusted Computer Solutions, Inc. in support of expanded software development efforts and accepting additional responsibility in project and business growth.
