HOMELAND SECURITY

R&K Cyber Solutions approved to use DHS-developed commercial cyber tech

R&K Cyber Solutions has received a license to use a technology developed by the Homeland Security Department for malware forensics detection and software assurance.

Called Hyperion, the technology was developed by the Oak Ridge National Laboratory and is being transitioned for commercial use.

Hyperion is a product of the Department’s Science and Technology Directorate and its Transition to Practice program that aims at  improving cybersecurity by commercializing technology that would otherwise just remain an idea, the Department said in a release.

Hyperion was selected for commercialization in 2012, the same year that the technology transition program was founded, and is the second technology to be commercialized through the program. The first – called Quantum Secured Communication – was an encryption system used to protect the nation’s cyber infrastructure.

The Transition to Practice program selects a handful of promising cyber technologies to incorporate into its 36-month program each year, the Department said. It currently has 24 technologies that are ready to transition to the marketplace.
