Missouri S&T receives gift valued at $930K

ROLLA, Mo. (AP) - A cybersecurity company is giving Missouri University of Science and Technology software valued at nearly $930,000.

The university says 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.
