We are proud to announce that CounterCraft has been awarded a sole-source contract from the U.S. government, with a ceiling of more than $26MM, allowing the entire United States Department of Defense and federal government access to our innovative deception technology for active cyber defense.
This is an especially important announcement as we continue our ongoing mission to support U.S. cybersecurity initiatives. CounterCraft has worked extensively with the U.S. Department of Defense and the Defense Innovation Unit (DIU) to meet mission-critical performance requirements, allowing the DoD to enhance cyber threat detection and intelligence-gathering capabilities. This is CounterCraft’s second production contract, which originally stemmed as a prototype from our efforts with DIU. This highlights the successes with collaborating with the DIU and how they are able to accelerate the adoption of commercial technology and sustainably scale solutions supporting the DoD and federal government.
“It is clear that we are the active cyber defense and threat intelligence partner of choice for some of the most sophisticated organizations in the world; from governments to critical infrastructure to Fortune 500 companies. This award validates that our technology is highly needed and tremendously valued by our customers.” —David Barroso, CEO and Co-Founder
This contract announcement is the culmination of a three-year effort starting with competitive trials with the DIU, where CounterCraft outperformed over 20 other cybersecurity firms, including some of the giants in the industry, impressing with our capabilities in the following areas:
- – Advanced Threat Detection and Response
- – Local Indicators of Compromise
- – Machine-Readable Threat Intelligence
- – Proactive Threat Hunting
- – Active Attacker Engagement
“Enabling commercial solutions and advancing public-private partnerships is a strong move by GSA and other forward-thinking federal organizations to stay ahead of threats from nation-state adversaries. We are committed to supporting our warfighters with innovative solutions for defense cyber operations (DCO) and nontraditional cyber initiatives.” —Amyn Gilani, COO
