Lookingglass Cyber Solutions, a cyber security software company based in Baltimore City’s technology incubator, has been named a finalist in the 2010 Maryland Incubator Company of the Year Awards program. For the second consecutive year, Lookingglass is being recognized for their innovative security technology and services.

Sponsored by the Maryland Technology Development Corporation (TEDCO), RSM McGladrey, Maryland Department of Business & Economic Development (DBED), and Saul Ewing LLP, the Maryland Incubator of the Year Awards program and its selection committee is made up of the region’s most prominent venture capitalists, investors, entrepreneurs, and researchers. “The nominees of this awards program represent pioneering companies that have benefited from the Maryland incubation system and are in positions to excel in emerging markets, ” says John Wasilisin, acting president and executive director of the Maryland Technology Development Corporation (TEDCO).

“It’s exciting to be headquartered in a region where technology, and in particular cyber security, is such a priority. Both public and commercial sectors are learning more and more the role cyber situational awareness plays in conducting business operations,” said Derek Gabbard, chief executive officer of Lookingglass.

Lookingglass has worked to position itself as an industry and thought leader in the cyber security space. Homeland defense, critical infrastructure, and financial institutions are in need of capabilities that enable them to keep one step ahead of malicious Internet activity.

ScoutVision, Lookingglass’s analysis, correlation, and visualization technology, provides a view of Internet infrastructure, activity, and connections important to those organizations responsible for protecting and sustaining critical infrastructure. ScoutVision allows corporations to monitor networks and infrastructure they are not in control of, but rely upon for day-to-day operations.

Recently, Lookingglass signed the NASA SEWP IV contract, a seven year Government-Wide Acquisition Contract, with Sword & Shield Enterprise Security, Inc. that would make ScoutVision available to all government agencies. Lookingglass has government contracts with DHS, Sandia National Labs, and Northrop Grumman.
