Science Applications International Corporation (SAIC) announced that it has initiated plans to expand its current Australian operations to include a regional cyber-security research and development (R&D) centre in Melbourne.
The centre will focus on R&D in new technologies and applications that mitigate risk, protect critical data and establish a comprehensive defence against cyber-security attacks for commercial and public sector networks worldwide.
"SAIC's research efforts in Melbourne will enable us to offer innovative products and solutions to our customers and to further expand into the global marketplace," said Steve Rizzi, SAIC vice president and regional manager.
This move by SAIC's US and Australian cyber research organisations closely mirrors the cooperation between the two national governments and multiple federal agencies.
SAIC's researchers in its Melbourne R&D centre will conduct advanced research in data mining and analysis systems, as well as development of software applications associated with CloudShield Technologies, Inc. and TeraText product lines.
The centre will provide a collaborative space for SAIC researchers to develop hardware and software to protect information and critical infrastructure from cyber attacks.
The cyber-security R&D centre will enable SAIC to better support its efforts for Australian government and industry clients.
