ROME, N.Y. — Assured Information Security (AIS) has opened a new office at 160 Brooks Road in Rome, which is located across the street from its headquarters.

AIS is leasing the more than 13,000-square-foot space from Community Bank, Erin Bushinger, senior manager of marketing & communications, said in an email response to a BJNN inquiry.

The company’s SecureView unit is using the new office space, AIS said in a Friday news release. Close to 45 people work with AIS’s SecureView group, Bushinger added.

The company on June 6 held a formal-opening event at its new office space that included officials from the Rome Area Chamber of Commerce.

The U.S. Air Force recently awarded AIS a $93.6 million indefinite delivery/indefinite quantity (IDIQ) contract, allowing for the performance of work in support of VIPER software baselines through April 2026.

VIPER is short for virtualized intelligence platform engineering and research.

SecureView, a unit within the cross-domain virtualization solutions (CDVS) group at AIS, will be handling this work for Air Force Research Laboratory (AFRL) in Rome, per a May 6 AIS news release about the contract. AFRL is also known as Rome Lab.

“We have a dedicated training room to support our monthly SecureView training classes and a large test lab which will support customer specific engineering, troubleshooting and support,” Sue Stein, program manager at AIS, said in the company’s news release. “There is also a conference room equipped with video teleconferencing equipment, so we can easily meet with our remote employees and customers, which is extremely important to us.”

Founded in 2001, AIS operates locations throughout the U.S. offering cybersecurity capabilities and services.

AIS says it has “doubled its workforce, more than quadrupled its revenue, acquired three companies and expanded to 10 locations” in the past six years, per its news release.
