Thinking "Out of the box"

The true sign of intelligence is not knowledge but imagination.

– Albert Einstein (1879-1955)

The fact is that we've been "thinking out of the box" long before it became a cliche! Through a variety of research projects sponsored by various Federal agencies, we have built breakthrough technology and an IP portfolio in areas like data integration, event correlation, and network security.

Innovation is simply in the DNA of our company. We do it because it is what seems natural to us. But, we are heartened that our predilection and talent for research has led to notable results and recognition by those outside our company.
