TDI Labs: Research & Publications

Research & Publications

In addition to product R&D, another equally important area of focus for Arx Labs is close collaboration with academia. We realize the intimate connection between academic research work and commercially viable products. In light of that motto, TDI has reached out to several institutions of higher education in the larger Washington metro area and engaged with both researchers and students to establish a program of collaboration and mutual benefit. It is our hope that in the very near future, Arx Labs will have established a very robust summer internship program, which will allow students to both continue their advanced academic work (and possibly even earn credit for the internship) and also get exposed to unique requirements of commercially funded R&D. In our view, such programs of mutually-beneficial collaboration serve the interests of both the direct participants and the greater information security community.

Through the efforts of Arx Labs and the rest of the company's highly skilled staff TDI is committed to continue solidifying its position as a leading information assurance services provider, as well as its position of knowledge disseminator for the greater social benefit.

Here is a sampling of TDI’s involvement in the larger Information Security community:
