The Nebraska Department of Economic Development and Nebraska-based cloud security company OpsCompass, LLC today announced completion of a prototype cloud security product that enhances security visibility and improves compliance when using products in the fast-growing Microsoft Azure cloud environment.
“The prototype program was essential to our need for speed in the cloud market. Not just financially, but also its ability to open doors and assimilate technology partnerships,” commented John Grange, Chief Technology Officer at OpsCompass. “We believe it directly led to essential dialogue with key players like the Nebraska Applied Research Institute (NARI), Microsoft Azure product leadership and innovative client executives that helped shape our product,” he added.
The first program prototype involves software that will provide cloud monitoring controls for cybersecurity and compliance within the Microsoft Azure cloud. Azure is used by more than five million organizations globally, including most Fortune 500 companies.
“OpsCompass is the type of organization that can really leverage the prototype program,” remarked Courtney Dentlinger, Executive Director of Nebraska Department of Economic Development. She continued, “they are solid, experienced technologists with a track record of success and innovation that can bring high tech talent and jobs to Nebraska.”
The first product, OpsCompass Helm, will see commercial release in August 2017. Additional software services such as the planned Navotics CPS project, a focus on cyber physical systems and IoT (Internet of Things) security analytics for cloud enablement, are in development with partners like NARI and other industry specific providers.
“This project is precisely the mission of NARI, to help build advanced solutions that are applicable to the marketplace and extend the capabilities and influence of the academic environment in real time, with real commercial enterprises,” added Bev Seay, Executive Director for Nebraska Applied Research Institute. She continued, “OpsCompass is one of the right partners because they understand our team is purpose built to tackle the rapid challenges inherent in this epoch of digital transformation and cyber threat.”
