The Homeland Security Department's Science and Technology Directorate is playing matchmaker between systems integrators and up-and-coming companies.

The goal is to get cutting-edge cybersecurity technology into the government as quickly as possible.

This is part of Science and Technology's approach to addressing the constantly changing threats to computer networks.

In part two of his series, DHS Science and Technology: A vision of what's possible, FederalNewsRadio's Jason Miller explores with program director Doug Maughan how the cybersecurity research and development center is helping advance the creation of computer security technologies.
