HUNTINGTON BEACH, Calif., July 19 (UPI) -- A new center for prototyping cybersecurity technologies has been opened in California by Boeing.

Boeing said the Information Security Innovation Lab features a Wide Area Network coupled with Boeing Information Solutions' Cyber Range-in-a-Box, allows modeling and simulation of complex missions and advanced threats for creation of security solutions.

"Boeing has made substantial investments in cybersecurity research and development over the past several years, including opening our Cyber Engagement Center in Maryland and completing numerous acquisitions," said Boeing Information Security Solutions Director Per Beith.

"The Huntington Beach lab continues the expansion of our efforts to develop and deliver innovative technologies and capabilities that support cyber operations for our customers today and into the future."

Boeing said the facility has isolated networks that allow threats and defenses to be modeled in a safe, repeatable environment. It also has networks that are connected to the company's LabNet, which provides connectivity to all the company's technology centers around the world.

"This innovation lab demonstrates the tremendous breadth and depth of talent that exists at our Huntington Beach site," said Alex Lopez, Huntington Beach site executive and vice president of Advanced Network and Space Systems.

"The employees who design, build and support our products and services will create sustainable growth for both Boeing and the community."
