depth of experience that’s hard to match in the industry:

  • 170+ Cybersecurity Professionals
  • 350 ATOs
  • 100 Physical Reviews
  • 95 Application Risk Assessments
  • The processes and tools to support large A&A programs, including proprietary tools developed in-house
  • The only NSA-certified Red Team outside government and the military
  • Over 9 years’ experience as a Computer Network Defense Service Provider, with multiple DoD CNDSP Tier 2 accreditations; currently prime contractor on two DoD CNDSP contracts.
  • Extensive experience transitioning systems from DIACAP to the Risk Management Framework (RMF) with two DoD agencies
  • Extensive experience managing large GWAC and IDIQ contracts
