InZero, By Light Team to Form Cybersecurity Venture

InZero Systems and By Light Professional IT Services are forming a joint venture to expand the federal government’s ability to fend off the increasing number of cyber attacks on critical computer networks.

The two firms will form By Light-InZero. By Light will provide InZero with professional support and federal testing and contracting capabilities with a number of key government agencies in the defense and intelligence sectors. Both companies are privately held.

InZero, founded in 2005, is headed by Louis R. Hughes, former president of Lockheed Martin, the nation’s largest defense contractor and a former executive vice president of General Motors. General Wesley Clark chairs the company’s advisory board. “Our technology is essentially what the Administration and Congress have been calling for,” Hughes said. “We are fundamentally changing the architecture of the personal computer to create an unprecedented level of security and control.”

“This is a vitally important development for our national defense and for the protection of this nation’s critical infrastructure,” said Clark.
