The University of Texas at San Antonio (UTSA), through its National Security Collaboration Center (NSCC), has entered a research partnership with Noblis, a leading provider of science, technology and strategy services to the federal government. Their research will focus on cybersecurity technologies.

“We have developed tools and technologies that are force multipliers for critical cyber missions, helping government agencies provide cybersecurity at scale, with speed,” said Noblis CEO Amr ElSawy. “We look forward to our involvement with the center and helping to advance research and solutions which contribute to our national security.”

Already boasting an established presence in San Antonio supporting the 16th Air Force and other DoD and Intel customers, Noblis’s cybersecurity expertise includes developing automated analytics that find threats and malicious behavior in large-scale client data sets and hidden networks; technologies that automatically detect and respond to attacks; applying machine learning to identify patterns, threats and fraud; and solutions that help government systems comply with cybersecurity policies and identify and mitigate risks.

“Our research agreement with UTSA drives our Noblis Sponsored Research program in exciting new directions,” said Christopher Barnett, the company’s vice president and chief technology officer. “Not only will we collaborate with talented students and professors, the outcomes developed will be readily applied to our customers’ challenges.”

In addition to the sponsored research deal, Noblis operates a robust intern program that has brought UTSA students into full-time employment.

The NSCC was formed to enhance the nation’s defense, security and intelligence ecosystems by providing state-of-the-art facilities and capabilities where government, academia, and industry collaborate to create innovative solutions to difficult security challenges.
