The new partnership will establish the foundation for increased delivery of advanced cybersecurity training
COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo., March 28, 2019 /PRNewswire/ — R9B, a leading provider of advanced cybersecurity training, products, and services announced today it has joined the Linux Foundation as a silver member and will be working on a new global training delivery system. Since 2011, R9B has provided cybersecurity training to both private and governmental organizations, including mission qualification testing (MQT) for the United States Department of Defense. In joining the Linux Foundation, the company will be able to extend the reach of its popular HUNT Linux training module, one in a three-part HUNT training series that also focuses on threat hunting for Windows and networks.
“An organization’s potential for a significant cyberattack increases each day and preparedness is one of the best defenses. For nearly a decade, our goal has been to bring both the concept and practice of HUNT to a wider audience and with the Linux Foundation we will greatly improve on that mission,” said R9B Chief Executive Officer Eric Hipkins. “Supporting the foundation financially is also meaningful to us because we recognize the strategic importance of involvement in technology communities and the ability to tap into that expertise.”
