MITRE's APE Among DHS S&T Transition to Practice Program Cohort
APE, a novel intrusion prevention system for Android developed by MITRE, is among eight new cybersecurity technologies to be showcased in the Department of Homeland Security Science and Technology Directorate's (S&T) Transition to Practice (TTP) program 2017 cohort in Washington, D.C. The 2017 cohort will be introduced to cybersecurity professionals—investors, developers and integrators—through a series of “Demonstration Day” events around the country that also will showcase the technologies to companies, including those from the energy, financial and government sectors. These events will help spur pilot opportunities and kick start commercialization by connecting the technologies with those who can advance the technologies and turn them into commercially viable products.
"The 2017 TTP cohort is comprised of a diverse range of innovative cybersecurity technologies that will help strengthen the cyber defenses of critical networks in the public and private sectors," said DHS Under Secretary (Acting) for Science and Technology Dr. Robert Griffin.
