Cybersecurity firm expanding near Fort Meade

Thursday - 1/31/2013, 5:38pm  ET

DORSEY, Md. - The cybersecurity firm Accuvant (AK'-yoo-vahnt) Inc. says it expects to add 180 jobs as it moves its Maryland office from Hanover to nearby Dorsey.

The privately held Denver-based company joined state and Howard County officials in announcing the move Thursday.

Accuvant says the move this spring will include the expansion of a security operations center to monitor and manage services to government and private clients. The company currently has 70 workers in Hanover.

The Maryland Department of Business and Economic Development says the new location offers proximity to both Washington and Fort Meade, home of the National Security Agency.

Officials say the company received a $300,000 state loan and a $30,000 grant from Howard County as part of a relocation assistance deal.
