Courion Corp. has joined a nonprofit initiative run by Mass Insight Global Partnerships that aims to develop cybersecurity offerings for New England businesses through collaborative research and development initiatives.
The company will help the Advanced Cyber Security Center work to identify and understand how risk management platforms and other information technology tools can address threats against virtual infrastructures, Courion said Tuesday.
Courion brings 17 years of intelligent identity and access management background and industry experience to the ACSC.
“We’ll be donating our software and professional services to help manage risks for ACSC members throughout New England,” said Chris Sullivan, CourionLabs vice president of product planning.
Courion aims to help the ACSC establish New England as a hub for cybersecurity R&D, educational training programs and employment opportunities.
Courion will also join the corporation’s bi-weekly Cyber Tuesday program, which gathers representatives of each member body for discussions on how to help organizations in the region address cyber threats.
