Assured Information Security, Inc. (AIS) was founded in 2001 as a software company that focused on research elements of critical Air Force and DoD cyber technology requirements. AIS, Inc.'s capabilities include cyber technology, command and control, human effectiveness and signals. AIS, Inc. grew to become a leader in this highly dynamic and emerging technology, supporting several customers across the federal government. By 2005, they had operation locations in New York and Oregon. They have been recognized twice by Inc. Magazine as one of the fastest growing companies int he United States. AIS, Inc. has built strong collaborations with other defense contractors and more than a dozen highly regarded universities including MIT and Harvard.
AIS, Inc.'s founding principles stem from their vision to be creators and defenders of a secure cyberspace where citizens have the safety and security to operate and conduct business with confidence and efficiency.
In January, 2006 they took occupancy of new research facilities in Rome, but in four short years they outgrew them. Ground was broken on September 20, 2010 on a new 46,305 square foot corporate headquarters for AIS, Inc. at Griffiss Business and Technology Park at the junction of Route 825 and Brooks Road- the former site of EDGE and Griffiss Local Development Corporation (GLDC) offices.
Construction of the two-story building is estimated at $10.585 million. Financing for the project came from multiple sources. Empire State Development provided $1 million in funding to support the project and Cardinal Griffiss Realty, a subsidiary of GLDC/EDGE, financed it with $5.6 million in various loans including $1.585 million from Oneida Savings Bank and $2.386 million in New Market Tax Credits through US Bancorp Community Development Corporation.
The company expects to add 39 employees over the next three years and its current space just couldn't accommodate that type of growth. They will initially utilize 36,000 square feet of the new building and reserve 10,000 square feet for future expansion. The new facility is planned to be operating by the end of 2011.
"The new facility not only solidifies our commitment to this area, but will also help us compete on a national scale for talent and resources to support research and development of computer network security technologies." President and CEO Charles Green said.
The presence of AIS, Inc. at Griffiss adds to a growing cluster of cyber security-focused companies spurred by the proximity to the Air Force Research Laboratory, a cornerstone of Central New York's growing IT corridor.
