Eclypsium wins AFWERX SBIR contract
Portland, OR-based Eclypsium announced on May 7 it has been awarded a U.S. Air Force, AFWERX Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) Phase 1 contract. The contract will allow Eclypsium to conduct feasibility studies with the Department of Defense (DoD) to demonstrate how the company’s enterprise device security platform supports unprecedented device visibility, risk management, and threat detection.
With ongoing supply chain attacks burying deep into critical information technology assets, little-known firmware and hardware components stand as some of the highest impact, most unguarded threats facing modern organizations. The risk posed to government systems has become far more widespread due to the availability of tools, hardware and firmware knowledge, and the wealth of vulnerabilities for attackers to target. Eclypsium’s technology provides comprehensive device visibility and defends against vulnerabilities and threats hidden within devices. This lower level of visibility is essential to a resilient cybersecurity strategy.
“Nation states represent a significant, persistent cyber espionage and attack threat to our military and critical infrastructure systems,” said John Loucaides, VP of federal technology at Eclypsium. “As adversaries continue to expand their capabilities into the many devices in our infrastructure, the DoD must deploy the most advanced cyber defense measures available. We are pleased that they have chosen Eclypsium to bring more holistic device visibility and security across an array of devices, components, and environments to the Air Force.”
