MELBOURNE, April 19 (UPI) -- A research and development center for cybersecurity in Australia is on the board for U.S. company Science Applications International Corp.
The center will be in Melbourne and is part of SAIC's larger plan to expand its presence in the country, it said.
"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.
The center will conduct research and development on new technologies and applications for protecting critical data and establish a comprehensive defense against cybersecurity attacks for commercial and public sector networks worldwide.
Specifically, researchers will focus on data mining and analysis systems and software applications associated with CloudShield Technologies Inc., a wholly-owned subsidiary of SAIC, and TeraText product lines.
"The cybersecurity R&D center will enable SAIC to better support its efforts for Australian government and industry clients, while also focusing on new initiatives and opportunities around the National Broadband Network," the company said.
