An Adversary Pursuit Center is going up in Colorado Springs, Colo. Built by root9B, a cybersecurity services firm, the $2 million cybersecurity facility will provide remote security services to the company’s government and commercial clients.
The 6,000 square foot APC will support root9B’s HUNT operations, in which security operators monitor client networks for suspicious activity through perimeter defense, network anomaly monitoring, host-based defense and credential security.
Earlier this year, root9B and Imprimis were awarded $1.7 million through the Department of Defense Rapid Innovation Fund Program for an advanced network Intrusion Detection System that is designed to optimize industrial control system network defense with a focus on automated analysis, detection and response to national-level threats.
The APC is expected to be fully operational by summer of 2015.
