Ohio is hoping to become a greater player in cybersecurity, thanks to a grant from the Ohio Third Frontier Commission.

The commission approved $5 million to support the Columbus Collaboratory, a partnership established to help companies perform advanced analytics and improve cybersecurity.

In addition to the Third Frontier grant, the Columbus Collaboratory will receive a $20 million investment from its partners: American Electric Power, Battelle, Cardinal Health, Huntington Bank, L Brands, Nationwide and OhioHealth.

“This project showcases what Ohio Third Frontier does best — bringing companies together to solve high-tech problems while creating jobs,” said David Goodman, director of the Ohio Development Services Agency and chairman of the Ohio Third Frontier Commission, in a statement. The Columbus Collaboratory is projected to create 100 jobs during the next five years.
