Eclypsium Awarded AFWERX SBIR Phase One Contract to Explore Air Force Use of Enterprise Device Security Platform
Portland, OR – May 7, 2021 –Eclypsium®, the enterprise device security company, today announced 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 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.”
Eclypsium delivers a comprehensive device security platform for government and commercial organizations. From laptops to servers to network infrastructure, Eclypsium provides automated, comprehensive visibility and protection across all the devices that organizations rely on, all the way down to firmware. The Eclypsium platform can be deployed in the cloud or on-premise in minutes, utilizing an organization’s existing staff and resources. Eclypsium was named a Gartner Cool Vendor in Security Operations and Threat Intelligence, a TAG Cyber Distinguished Vendor, one of the World’s 10 Most Innovative Security Companies by Fast Company, a CNBC Upstart 100, a CB Insights Cyber Defender, and an RSAC Innovation Sandbox finalist.
