NEW YORK, Oct. 17 (UPI) -- L-3 Communications and Virginia Tech have formed a cooperative partnership in cybersecurity research and development.

A key element of the relationship will be the establishment of L-3's Cybersecurity Solutions Center, which will work with Virginia Tech's Cybersecurity Innovations Lab in Northern Virginia.

"This new relationship with Virginia Tech is an important centerpiece in our ongoing cybersecurity solutions development as it provides us with access to proprietary academic and scientific research and development," said Les Rose, president of L-3 STRATIS.

"We firmly believe that combining Virginia Tech's and L-3's expertise in cybersecurity research and development, technology and services will lead to the development of advanced solutions that enhance security for our nation's cyber capabilities across the federal government, defense, intelligence and critical infrastructure communities.

"Our goal is to not only develop advanced cyber solutions but also speed the transfer of these solutions to our customers."

L-3 said the partnership will enhance L-3's ability to deliver innovative national security solutions. L-3 will offer, in collaboration with Virginia Tech and additional emerging technology and government partners, customized cyber solutions that enhance customers' ability to secure critical networks against exploitation and attack.

L-3 is focusing its efforts on the most pressing cybersecurity disciplines, including advanced analytics; cloud, virtualization, communications and mobile security; and cybersecurity training and education.
