We continue to see many innovative companies emerging from Maryland. Trident Cybersecurity is the lead investor in IronNet Cybersecurity and Bayshore Networks.
General Alexander, who led the National Security Agency from 2005 to 2014, also served as the first commander of the U.S. Cyber Command. After retiring from military service, the General founded IronNet Cybersecurity in Fulton, Md. In his remarks yesterday, he touted the benefits of doing business in Maryland – among them, the community, the ecosystem, and the talented workforce committed to the mission of keeping the country safe. “It’s gold,” he said. “General Alexander is one of the most knowledgeable and most respected experts in the cyber arena,” said Ken McCreedy, senior director of cyber development for Maryland Commerce. “His decision to open IronNet in Maryland is testament to the state’s robust cyber sector.”
