Strasbourg, May 10, 2021 -- U.S. Air Force today awarded Eclypsium, an enterprise device security company, AFWERX Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) Phase 1 contract. The contract will allow Eclypsium to demonstrate its enterprise device security platform capabilities with the US Department of Defense (DoD).
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.
