  • McAfee has donated $2.3 million in security hardware and software to enhance the Rochester Institute of Technology’s information security, academic and research programs.
    The gift will serve as a core security component of RIT’s new data center, enhance the security of endpoints, such as desktops, laptops and mobile devices and create the McAfee Interlock Lab within RIT’s B. Thomas Golisano College of Computing and Information Sciences.
    RIT’s new data center, which will be located in Institute Hall and operational in spring 2013, will provide computing capacity and services for the RIT community, such as high-speed networking and server management. By consolidating RIT’s data and computing services into an air-cooled facility, RIT will improve energy-efficiency, strengthen security and advance computing capacity and capabilities.
    The partnership will also create several McAfee cooperative education opportunities, allowing students within the computing college to work on RIT’s information security as paid McAfee employees.
