ECCALON TAKES 3RD PLACE DURING FIRST-EVER PROTOTYPING AND HACKATHON EVENT

From September 17-20th Eccalon participated in its first cybersecurity hackathon and rapid prototyping event hosted by USCYBERCOM and DreamPort in the University of Maryland Baltimore County Training Center in Columbia, Maryland.

“This is just the first out of hopefully many steps that Eccalon hopes to take in order to position ourselves at the tip of the spear when it comes to providing novel solutions to the ever-evolving cyber challenges that not only industry faces, but our nation as well. There is obviously room for improvement, but I can’t be prouder of the job our team has done and I look forward to what we will continue to do in the future” said Gudger in a statement after the event.

Eccalon responds to advanced cyber security threats and creates innovative applications of technologies critical for the successes of advanced manufacturing in the United States by creating next generation cyber tools that help the U.S. Government increase its overall capability.

Participants at this year’s Chameleon and Snake event focused on developing practicable technology solutions that specifically target malware signature diversity and measurement in a simulated operational environment.

Created as an agreement between the Maryland Innovation and Security Institute and the United States Cyber Command, DreamPort utilizes a combination of state-of-the-art facilities, innovative programs, and imaginative people charged with finding innovative solutions that lead to unparalleled capability for USCYBERCOM and the warfighters at large.
