Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University and Stealth Software of Scottsdale, Ariz., have joined forces to create new applications and storage methods that will prevent the leakage of sensitive information in the commercial world as well as in government. The agreement will allow Embry-Riddle’s College of Security and Intelligence (CSI) students and university researchers to work with a leading software company, learning how to securely store and share critical data and files.“Our students will be able to use state-of-the-art solutions that they will see when entering the working world,” said Dr. Jon Haass, Associate Professor of Cyber Security and Intelligence at Embry-Riddle Prescott. “Experience with database solutions and secure applications make them more valuable to prospective employers.”
Embry-Riddle’s CSI, the first of its kind in the country, is on the forefront of establishing one of the most advanced cyber security programs in the nation. Stealth Software provides software solutions to enhance the security, scalability and performance of Microsoft SharePoint (widely used by the U.S. government and the intelligence community) as well as .NET applications while reducing cost, complexity and management overhead. The company has developed a data security capability that is directly applicable in that environment and will now be used at the College of Security and Intelligence. Additionally, Stealth Software will now be implemented and utilized in the CSI cyber lab.
“With the creation of the College of Security and Intelligence, Embry-Riddle is on the forefront of establishing one of the most advanced programs in the nation for educating students in leading-edge cyber security technologies,” said Gerard Warrens, CEO of Stealth Software. “Bringing Stealth Software onto the campus and into the CSI and its cyber lab bolsters the student experience while preparing students for a career in the U.S. law enforcement, homeland security and intelligence community.”
The agreement will impact and ultimately benefit the public. Both Embry-Riddle and Stealth Software recognize the need to train more skilled cyber professionals in order to create a more secure and trusted cyber space. “The goal is for everyone to safely interact, shop, bank and enjoy the many benefits of the globally connected Internet,” Haass said.
“Stealth Software will have the benefit of partnering and supporting one of the most prestigious universities in the country and supporting the national security mission,” added Warrens.
