Report: DOE-Backed National Labs License 19 Cybersecurity Tools to Private Sector

Energy Department-funded national laboratories have so far licensed 19 cybersecurity technology platforms through the Transition to Practice program managed by the  Department of Homeland Security, FCW reported Wednesday.

DHS established the TTP program in 2012 as part of efforts to help transfer innovations from a laboratory into the commercial marketplace.

The report said DOE’s Pacific Northwest National Laboratory has licensed five technologies via the program to date and allows interested companies to determine if a PNNL-developed tool could be applied into their product or service offerings through an exploratory licensing agreement with the lab.

IP Group-based startup company Cynash obtained licensing rights for PNNL’s Digital Ants and MLSTONES  security platforms.

Cynash aims to incorporate both technologies into a portfolio of products and services intended to help public and private sector organizations defend against cyber threats.
