L-3 Communications and Virginia Tech have announced a partnership in cybersecurity and research development with Virginia Tech’s Ted and Karyn Hume Center for National Security and Technology, a program for developing future government industry leaders.
L-3 announced that it will be constructing a Cyber Security Solution Center parallel to Virginia Tech’s Cybersecurity Innovations Lab in Northern Virginia. L-3’s STRATIS division will be leading the effort.
“This new relationship with Virginia Tech is an important centerpiece in our ongoing cybersecurity solutions development, as it provides us with access to proprietary academic and scientific research and development,” said Les Rose, president of L-3 STRATIS. “We firmly believe that combining Virginia Tech’s and L-3’s expertise in cybersecurity research and development, technology and services will lead to the development of advanced solutions that enhance security for our nation’s cyber capabilities across the federal government, defense, intelligence and critical infrastructure communities.
L-3 is focusing its efforts on the most pressing cybersecurity disciplines, including advanced analytics; cloud, virtualization, communications and mobile security; and cybersecurity training and education. The company will collaborate these efforts as well as their government partners with Virginia Tech.
