Endgame Inc. has won a $1.5 million sole source contract to safeguard networks for the Air Force’s Cyber Protection Teams.
Under the contract, Endgame will provide a cyber operations platform to help hunt adversaries through use of stealth operations, attacker detection and automated response.
The company is bringing its “automate the hunt” technology to the Air Force after having developed it while working with the Defense Department and intelligence community.
“The hunting process is missing in many agencies’ approach to cyber defense. We’ve developed this methodology to disrupt the kill chain at all stages of an attack. This will enable the Air Force and U.S. Cyber Command to better discover, mitigate, and respond to adversarial risks and threats,” said Nate Fick, Endgame CEO.
