(Jan. 13, 2012) --Quarri Technologies, a security software company that empowers organizations to keep their sensitive data secure, announced that Executive Chairman Bill Morrow has given The University of Texas at San Antonio College of Business a gift of $10,000 cash and 100,000 shares of company stock to support cyber security research. An alumnus of the UTSA College of Business, Morrow is a strong supporter of UTSA cyber security and has a history of giving to the university, dating back to 2001.
"UTSA is extremely grateful to business leaders like Bill Morrow, who are providing the much-needed community support that UTSA needs to become a Tier One research institution," said UTSA President Ricardo Romo. "His gifts will continue to foster cyber security research."
Morrow hopes that his example will spur other UTSA alumni who are successful entrepreneurs and innovators to give back to their alma mater.
"The researchers in UTSA College of Business are some of the best in the world," said Morrow. "Their level of innovation and advancement in network security research is unmatched across the U.S. Likewise, Quarri Technologies' award-winning products give companies around the world peace of mind that today's sophisticated data attacks, whether from external or internal sources, will be stopped and sensitive data will remain secure. Quarri looks forward to the opportunity to work with UTSA in the future on next-generation IT security advancements."

He currently sits on the UTSA Development Board and has served on the UTSA College of Business Advisory Board. Morrow earned a B.B.A. in marketing from UTSA and is a 2002 UTSA Alumnus of the Year. He was the 2010 Ernst and Young Entrepreneur of the Year Award winner for Central Texas.
