San Antonio December 3, 2020 -- To commemorate its 20th anniversary, Digital Defense, Inc., a provider in vulnerability management and threat assessment solutions, announced the establishment of a financial endowment for the Department of Computer Science at The University of Texas at San Antonio (UTSA). The endowment will provide scholarships and support to students on the path to a software engineering or cybersecurity career. In addition, it will support UTSA and its efforts to further enhance cybersecurity programs in the nation.
Digital Defense has a long-standing relationship with the university, including collaboration through an intern recruitment program. Over the years, UTSA’s software engineering and cybersecurity programs have produced exceptional candidates who have transitioned into full times roles at the company.
"We are grateful to be celebrating our 20th anniversary, a significant milestone, and wanted to give back to San Antonio, our hometown community, and the cyber security industry at large. Furthering our partnership with UTSA allows us to do both," said Larry Hurtado, president and CEO of Digital Defense. "We seek out every opportunity to help our Nation and organizations around the globe protect their information assets from cyberattacks. The establishment of the UTSA endowment does just that – affording us the opportunity to help support the education of future generations of cybersecurity and engineering professionals, and longer term, provides additional relief to the cyber security workforce shortage."
Scholarship opportunities will be available starting in 2021. Students enrolled at least part-time, in good standing and majoring in computer science with concentrations in either cyber security and/or software engineering are encouraged to apply.
"As one of the first cybersecurity companies in the world and cloud-based technologies in San Antonio, Digital Defense is an inspiring example of the impactful work that our students want to achieve in their own future careers," said David R. Silva, Ph.D., dean of the college of sciences at UTSA. "Our students have greatly benefited from the internships and employment opportunities that Digital Defense has provided over the years. We are grateful for the company’s ongoing support and the endowed undergraduate scholarship will allow even more students to pursue a cybersecurity or software engineering career."
