Missouri S&T receives $930,000 in security software licenses

ROLLA — A cybersecurity company is giving Missouri University of Science and Technology software valued at nearly $930,000.

The university said Lumension gave the school free, three-year subscription licenses for software designed to improve computer security and efficiency. It will be installed on the campus network and computers, allowing networks, servers, computers and other devices on campus to be protected by them.

Through the partnership, Missouri S&T also will provide the security tools to students, faculty and staff for their privately owned computers on the campus network.

Students will be able to use the software to learn more about Internet security. The company has plans to create on-campus internships and involve Missouri S&T students in developing tools for security risk assessment.

BTW, through our web and conventional mail sources we understand that beginning in 2014 University SYSTEM will publish a composite (all campuses) "Honor Roll of Donors and Volunteers" in online format.

The public, including the Honor donators and Volunteers, will have a published, single-source reference.

Donors and/or Volunteers wishing not to have their names listed will be given the opportunity to do so.

The Honor list will include all MS&T alumni who are members of our Order of the Golden Shillelagh (OGS), other than any who wish to remain anonymous.

MISSOURIAN: Are you presently aware of this development?

Wow, this site is dead. Remember when each day brought hundreds of posts and dozens of posters? John Schultz, Mark Foecking and Mike Martin don't even make an appearance any more.

All yours, Ellis. Don't forget to shut off the lights when you leave.

@Jimmy Bearfield (BUT MORE PARTICULARLY @ the Missourian):

I'll be sure to turn off the lights, Jimmy, although I would say the Missourian has already done so. I am used to working in the dark. (The first word in my Email address is Spanish for "owl.")

There are recognized steps useful when solving problems. They work, but not when the would-be problem solvers fail to identify the problem. In this case the real problem either wasn't identified or is for some reason being ignored.

This site is the property of the Missourian, and so it's their call.

I may well turn out the lights, BUT I HAVE ABSOLUTELY NO INTENTION OF LEAVING.
