Cybersecurity firm BlueVoyant announced plans this week to open a new analytics center in College Park, Md.

The company, which was founded as blueteamglobal by former Morgan Stanley COO Jim Rosenthal and ex-Thomson Reuters CEO Tom Glocer, currently has 25 employees working out of a temporary office near the University of Maryland campus. It expects to move soon to StartupUMD@Diamondback Garage, which is part of an area designed to colocate companies and startups and the university’s entrepreneurial resources known as the “Discovery District.” The employee count at the office is expected to grow after the move, according to the company.

BlueVoyant, which also has offices in New York, Israel and London, specializes in threat intelligence and cyber investigations. According to the company, a team at the College Park office will analyze internet data for potential threats to companies. Dan Ennis, who is head of threat intelligence and operations for the company, said he took note of the university’s focus on cyber talent, which is a strength for the region.

“We chose this location for the center because of its proximity to the University of Maryland and its talent base of students and individuals with government and private-sector experience, as well as the chance to be a part of the College Park growth plan,” he said in a statement.

The company is also receiving government-backed loans. The Maryland Department of Commerce is providing a $100,000 conditional loan, and Prince George’s County is currently processing a $100,000 loan from its Economic Development Incentive fund.

BlueVoyant will be joined in the garage by Capital One, which announced plans to open an office that would pair researchers and the financial giant’s teams focused on cyber and machine learning.
