Maine Cyber Security Cluster Initiative funded

USM will create the Cyber Security Laboratory, the first in Maine, as a shared and secure testing and evaluation environment that will allow private and public entities to refine their technology infrastructures and code on the fly, help them to clearly identify their competitive advantage by testing their products against some of the most advanced cyber security products in the world, including testing and evaluating products from major global vendors before installing these products in their infrastructure, and help entrepreneurs define the true commercialization potential of their innovations prior to approaching investors.
