IronNet, Inc. (IronNet), a pioneer in transforming cybersecurity through collective defense℠, recently announced the execution of an initial federal contract to deliver cybersecurity services to the United States Navy's Naval Sea Systems Command (NAVSEA), the largest of the Navy's five "systems commands." The agreement was entered following the successful completion of a pilot program that provided NAVSEA with the IronNet Collective Defense Platform.
As nation-state cyber threats against the Defense Industrial Base (DIB) program of the Department of Defense (DoD) continue to increase, IronNet strengthens the DIB's cybersecurity prevention and protection of third-party and supply chain cyber risk. This support corresponds with the DoD's initiatives to encourage DIB entities to provide information and share anonymized cyber threat indicators that they deem helpful for notifying the government and others in order to counter threat actor activities more effectively. The IronNet Collective Defense Platform will allow each contractor in the NAVSEA DIB program to boost its network threat visibility while also integrating them in real-time through a private IronNet Collective Defense Community for NAVSEA.
Through linked alerts, automated triage, and extended hunt assistance, the IronNet Collective Defense Platform acts as an early warning system for all participating corporations and organizations, increasing network security. In addition, IronNet's platform was recently updated to increase alert fidelity and analyst workflow by strengthening embedded risk scoring for more accessible alert prioritizing. These improvements result in much lower alert loads, false positives, and a shorter time to investigate.
NAVSEA will have enhanced visibility of the current threat landscape, with situational context, thanks to the IronNet Collective Defense Platform, and will be able to increase the effectiveness of existing defenses and cybersecurity solutions used by its DIB contractors. Continuous monitoring of known and undiscovered threats contributes to meeting Cybersecurity Maturity Model Certification (CMMC) parameters.
The IronNet Collective Defense Platform offers timely actionable, and relevant cyber attack intelligence earlier in case of an incursion before a threat can have a substantial impact, allowing DIB firms and the Navy to defend US Naval intellectual property better.
