Chiron Technology Services, a Maryland-based cybersecurity company, opened a Regional Cybersecurity Development Center Jan. 1 on Interstate Parkway, according to local real estate company Sherman & Hemstreet.

The center will staff 26 highly-skilled employees and provide cybersecurity research and development as well as training in operational network security, according to a news release.

“Our expansion into Augusta will help us more efficiently train and equip Fort Gordon cybersecurity professionals as well as provide operational support to additional customers throughout the Southeast,” Chiron President and CEO Dave Pappas said in a statement.

Chiron is a veteran-owned company founded in 2004. It has offices in Colorado, Maryland and Virginia.

The company provides services in cybersecurity, information operations, software and systems engineering. Chiron’s partners include defense contractors Booz Allen Hamilton, Lockheed Martin, Northrop Grumman, Raytheon and Praxis Engineering.

The company is leasing a 21,000-square-foot space on University of Phoenix’s Augusta campus, just off Interstate 20.

“Fort Gordon has always been a key driver in our local economy, attracting government contractors and technology companies,” said Joe Edge, owner of Sherman & Hemstreet. “Now, with the addition of the U.S. (Army) Cyber Command to Fort Gordon and Chiron Technology, Augusta will lead the region in cyber and IT growth.”
