FourV_LogoSRC, Inc., a not-for-profit research and development company, announced the formation of a new wholly owned subsidiary, FourV Systems, LLC. The new company will focus on providing big data analytics products that are scalable and easily customizable to customers’ unique business needs. Derek Gabbard, most recently a manager in SRC’s Cyber business, has been named president and will lead this new for-profit venture. FourV Systems will be based in Baltimore, Md.

FourV Systems will bring game-changing technologies to the commercial market space, much like SRC has done for the U.S. government for more than five decades,” stated Paul G. Tremont, president of SRC. “With Derek at the helm, we are confident that FourV Systems will help customers, around the world, protect their most valuable information, more efficiently and effectively.”

In his role as president, Gabbard will be responsible for building the FourV Systems team and operating the new company. “It is exciting to be able to launch FourV from such an innovative company like SRC. With FourV’s office being located in a technology-rich environment like Baltimore, we’ll be able to hit the ground running and help customers be more secure in the cyber domain,” said Gabbard.

FourV Systems will start by offering the GreySpark™ reasoning engine as its primary product. The GreySpark software combines historical big data analytics and real-time processing to address enterprise needs in fraud detection and cybersecurity. Furthermore, the software automatically scales the infrastructure it uses to match the needs of the enterprise, allowing customers who otherwise might not be able to afford traditional big data analytic platforms to effectively protect their information.

Gone are the days when world-class, big and fast data analytical tools were only available for large enterprises,” said Gabbard. “With the GreySpark cloud-based solution, customers of all types and sizes can benefit from a sophisticated platform that can be customized for their needs.”

Gabbard has worked in the information and network security world for almost 20 years. He founded Lookingglass Cyber Solutions, a cyber threat intelligence product company, and spent a number of years working at the Computer Emergency Readiness Team (CERT) in the Software Engineering Institute at Carnegie Mellon University.
