The Cync program will work introduce iWebgate’s and Light Point Security’s new cyber offerings into the federal marketplace, Northrop said Monday.
Chris Valentino, program director for cyber and intelligence mission solutions at Northrop, said the goal of the program is to develop new ideas that could support the company’s customers.
“I continue to be amazed at the endless stream of innovation and pleased that we can help these companies nurture their technology and business plans to make a difference in global security.”
The new graduates will join DB Networks, KoolSpan, AccelerEyes (ArrayFire), Five Directions, Oculis Labs and Ayasdi as alums of the program.
