DIU selects Analyst1 for cyber defense work

Analyst1 of Reston, VA announced on August 13 that the Defense Innovation Unit (DIU) selected Analyst1 to spearhead its cyber defense operations transformation. DIU, the Department of Defense organization focused exclusively on fielding, scaling, and quickly delivering technology across the U.S. military, will prototype Analyst1 to help reduce the cognitive burden on the cybersecurity analyst, and leverage machine-speed to aid in decision-making against persistent threats to the DoD Information Network (DODIN).

Analyst1 will provide the DoD with an enterprise-scale, cyber platform that operationalizes threat intelligence and enables security teams and analysts to focus on deeper analysis and response. DIU realizes that with Analyst1, it will be able to establish an evolving knowledge base of correlated insights about threats, attack patterns, malware families, vulnerabilities, internal assets, mission-critical systems at risk, and the defensive posture of its operations.

“We are excited to partner with Defense Innovation Unit to deliver solutions for the Department of Defense,” said Hugh Clapp, Analyst1’s chief executive officer. “We believe our platform will provide the technology needed to help detect persistent cyber threats and expedite the process to mitigation.”
