CounterCraft wins DIU OTA
On January 22, CounterCraft announced that it will be working with the U.S. Department of Defense to dramatically enhance cyber threat detection and intelligence-gathering capabilities. The company has been awarded an Other Transaction (OT) agreement by the Defense Innovation Unit (DIU), which prototyped CounterCraft’s capabilities in the use of deception technology to prevent cyber attacks targeting the U.S. Department of Defense (DoD).
The capability to elicit high-grade threat intel from cyber attackers is a game changer. U.S. cyber operators’ repeated use of the CounterCraft platform is a validation of its vision and security engineering, and is a source of great pride for our company. The agreement comes as CounterCraft is expanding its U.S. footprint, opening a new branch on American soil to support forward-leaning clients looking for the best in security innovation.
DIU is an organization within the U.S. Department of Defense (DoD) focused on identifying novel commercial technology solutions and deploying them rapidly across the Department. CounterCraft will work with the DIU and various U.S. operational units to enhance the mission effectiveness of military personnel by providing DoD cybersecurity operators with access to CounterCraft’s platform-based technology, capable of withstanding an ongoing cyber attack, and gathering proactive intelligence about malicious actors.
“The contract with DIU went forward in record time. It’s impressive to see our technology adopted at the speed of relevance by one of the world’s top cybersecurity powers,” said David Barroso, co-founder and CEO of CounterCraft.
