Our Services

About SMS was started by Bobby Varghese, an information security consultant local to the Northern Virginia and Washington D.C. area. The website was born with the goal of creating a secure resource for various information technology (IT) and information security services. Rather than have individuals navigate websites with limited confidence in the site’s use of information, SecureMySanity® (SMS) provides a simpler and more secure alternative for common used IT and web services. We plan to keep expanding these services.

The SMS website is also a place where lecture content was posted to assist with teaching and to help explain security concepts in greater detail.

Over the years, the SMS website have evolved to be much more. We have various projects at work with through the efforts of the diverse and skilled team at SMS. With backgrounds in various fields from business management, web design, marketing and law, our team is well-rounded and experienced to oversee complex projects.

We offer consulting services for networking, web design, graphics design, web programming and cloud based services.

The SMS team has built and manage the automation services behind RealTime Escapes® (RTE) ( Our locks, wireless system, text-based access and personalized electronic reminders are all interlinked in a custom built automation system. This system was initially built to help perfect and streamline our short-term rental business, but we are now proudly in the position of offering our RTE system to other short-term rental owners under the name, Jervis. We are currently developing more features to be released soon! More details to follow for this at and

About Bobby

My Life Motto: “Lead, follow or get out of the way.”

I have a curious and entrepreneurial mind and like to be involved in many different things. I am prior service Air Force, during which time I was stationed in Ramstein AB, Germany and then lived and worked in the UK for a few years afterwards. I enjoyed my experiences in the military and it has made me who I am today. I’ve traveled throughout Europe and have loved meeting like-minded people and building lasting relationships.

Over the years, I have been able to put together a highly skilled and diverse team who helps me accomplish anything we set out to do. We have many services we have built from the ground up, as well as systems we are continually developing in the background.

I work in a number of roles. Primary, I work as a IT & Network Security consultant and provide services with my team through the SecureMySanity® (SMS) brand under my consulting company, Guarded Horizons Inc.

I also teach as an adjunct professor at George Mason University during traditional semesters and at the Oslo Metropolitan University (OsloMet) in Norway during the summer.

I started a short term rental company in 2017 called RealTime Escapes® (RTE) (, whose automation services were put together and are managed by the SMS team.

The next major project I will be taking on is Colo Café® ( The concept of Colo Café has been in planning for a number of years. The business will open in the near future as a coworking space providing diversified amenities, event space and will include a dedicated coffee lounge and bar space.
