Officials at Norwich University announced a partnership between the university’s digital Threat Analysis Center (NTAC) and computer security software firm RazorThreat.
The Michigan-based company provides cyber security software that monitors all network activity which has the potential to be the basis for next generation digital forensics, a focus of Norwich’s Bachelor of Science in Computer Security and Information Assurance (BSCSIA) program.
“They are becoming an industry partner with the Center, and we anticipate a lot of great interaction including assisting with their product development and testing; access to their products, and eventually internships,” said Peter Stephenson, director of the Center for Advanced Computing and Digital Forensics, which houses NTAC.
“RazorThreat is honored to be selected as an Industry Partner for Norwich’s Threat Analysis Center. The work that Dr. Stephenson and the University are doing in the areas of Threat Intelligence and Real-time Digital Forensics is so relevant and necessary in today’s world,” said President and CEO of RazorThreat Greg Guidice.
“Business and governments are under constant, targeted attack today and they need a better way to positively control and detect what is happening within their networks. We look forward to working with Dr. Stephenson and other complimentary industry partners to address these issues.”
