Innovative Technology


A Journey over 18 years in the making. From humble bootstrapped beginnings to unbounded patent pending compression-encryption technology.Make-up just a few areas of our core focus.

Leon Zackoski -CEO-
If you're struggling to secure,migrate applications or frameworks ,store large data. Encode or transfer video/audio. elevator/fifty/one can assist. Also need your infrastructure or application assessed? How quickly can you acquire resources to virtualize/containerize your platform? Engage with EFO. Your solution is waiting.
Technology is our passion. Which is why we constantly develop new techniques to further improve how the IT landscape evolves. With emerging technology and security risks data-is-data. Stability is at the core.


Leon can be found consistently in the lab pioneering unique, otherwise theoretically "game-changing" technologies.

Whats Up!

Karl is in-tune with modern virtualization and containers. No matter the platform.

A brand for a company is like a reputation for a person. You earn reputation by trying to do hard things well.

Jeff Bezos
Currently we support a varied list of application development types. Web or Mobile? From iOS, Android or any mobile platform to Web app. Native or Hybrid to Cloud Ready. Including Oracle,Java,Python,Angular,Node.js,Ruby and then some.
When mission critical application(s) are relied upon it is important to have resilient application structure. Applications have become an integral part of any business decision and so is the team and technology behind you. Efficient, Clean-Code, and expedited development cycle is a necessity for any project.

You can’t just ask customers what they want. By the time you get it built, they'll want something new.

Steve Jobs
At elevator/fifty/one we have put a large amount of time into research into data science along with pattern behavior, tokenizing, hebbian recognition. We have used these insights to create and extract knowledge from both structured and unstructered data.
We also apply the field of science to visualizing and interpreting large data sets, further quantifying the rise of "big data" and the challenge presented with security, ethics, and data privacy.

Never fall in love with an idea. They’re bad. If the one you’re with isn’t doing the job, there’s always another.

Chip Kidd
When it comes to voluminous amounts of data in modern computing EFO has developed machine agnostic, algorithmic A.I functions that negates the need for traditional "compression" techniques to reduce data volume. In a environment burdened with apps,digitized-data,text,audio, and video ; data is data and it has grown too large.
A majority of existing methods of reducing data has grown stale. We encroach 8k resolutions, larger database infrastructure, more web streaming of video and audio. No matter the method data is traveling the internet at increasing paces. We're ideally positioned to bring these technologies together with proprietary "data reduction".

All that is valuable in human society depends upon the opportunity for development accorded the individual.

Albert Einstein
Encryption is even more so a need in todays IT world, bank security ,internet transaction or simply keeping the web secure. Traditional encryption is still vulnerable, man in the middle attacks, spoofs, etc. Data is not private. AES, two-factor, ciphers, etc shared vs non shared, DES even blockchain.
Leave behind p2p or "ledger" encrytion containing randomized data,forget key-store and encryption hashes with a salt and store mechanism. Simply infeasible for IoT and large enterprise. E51 provides "patent-pending" technology to securely encrypt information easily and effectively. Not to mention in-vulnerable to unethical breaches. Un-hackable

I believe that if you show people the problems and you show them the solution they will be forced to act.

Bill Gates
Virtualization, Containerization,Cloud Platform in todays IT infrastructure have become increasingly important to enterprise operations. This attrition along with increasing user demand contributes to large scale data storage needs for successful enterprise operation.
When it comes to SAN or Data center need , we can provide data warehousing needs from large to small. With multiple layered network fabric and data center locations encompassing our technology allows us to deliver an unrivaled SECURE platform to store your data no matter the content.
