Cyber tech transfers from lab to industry

Cyber tech transfers from lab to industry

The Network Mapping System (NeMS), developed by Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory, has been licensed for commercialization.  The software-based tool that tells users what is connected to their network so that they know what needs to be protected has been licensed to Cambridge Global Advisors, an Arlington, Va.-based strategic advisory services firm.

NeMS is the third technology to successfully emerge from the Department of Homeland Security's Transition to Practice program and enter the commercial market.  The program is run by DHS' Science and Technology Directorate.

“TTP’s goal is to find technologies with the potential to strengthen our nation’s cybersecurity posture and assist those technologies in making the difficult journey from the research lab to the commercial marketplace,” said TTP Program Manager Mike Pozmantier.

Now in its third year, TTP has 24 that are ready for transition to the marketplace. Of those 24, three technologies—Quantum Secured Communication, Hyperion and now NeMS – have successfully transitioned into the marketplace through commercial licenses.
