Shield Tech was started by Rowan Shield in 2004. Rowan Shield started Shield Tech under the name of Rowan Shield Technologies, but due to certain circumstances the name was changed to Shield Tech. Shield Tech was started so that other people could benefit from his projects that he makes. These projects were anything from Programs that run in Windows and other Operating systems or PHP scrips.
Shield Tech was also started as a cause of Invision Power being sold and the new company deciding to make people pay for scripts to have a forum, when the owner said that Invision Power Board would continue to be free. Many other comapnies that charge people to use scripts also added to the need to create Shield Tech, this also includes Microsoft!
