Two Six Labs, a cybersecurity and information technology company that develops applications for problem solving is investing $3.4 million to relocate to a new office and expand its corporate headquarters in Arlington County.
CEO Christopher Greamo says Two Six Labs will receive funding from the Virginia jobs investment program to support the recruitment and training of 87 new employees.
“It’s just been a rapid growth of the organization. We have roughly doubled in size over the past year and we have needed additional space. We created more solutions, particularly in the homeland security space that are now being deployed,” said Greamo. “We are mostly scientists and research engineers. So we get to work on some of the hardest challenges for the department of defense, as I mentioned, homeland security.”
This multi-million dollar investment works on complex issues in cybersecurity, advanced analytics and defense. Examples of their technical work includes software, hardware and prototyping.
They are currently tackling what is now a national issue — a radiation detection network.
“There has been a lot of news about bombs and security threats. We are on a program, rolling out novel detection networks for a regional scale. So citywide monitoring for countering different weapons of mass destruction,” said Greamo.
Officials say their team of scientists and engineers in Arlington will continue to focus on solving some of the most difficult challenges facing national and homeland security, all while expanding their footprint in Arlington County.
