Based out of UMBC’s Research and Technology Park, Light Point sells a cloud-based malware plugin for Mozilla Firefox. With Light Point Web installed, Internet users can access websites that run off a virtual machine monitored by Light Point, meaning that websites with potential security holes are prevented from accessing your computer and implanting harmful malware.

Light Point Security is also one of 71 companies to advance to the second round of the InvestMaryland Challenge.
