Reston, Va. (PRWEB) March 08, 2012
As part of its expanding effort to stay current and ahead of burgeoning threats to cybersecurity, the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) has awarded SecureIT a contract to develop next-generation techniques to secure embedded computer systems. Embedded systems power everything today from televisions, media players, mobile devices, and modern military weapons.
While the universe of consumer computers has been at the forefront of years of such collaborative analysis, the embedded system community has lagged behind. SecureIT’s solution will provide administrators and researchers with timely and evolving information, enabling them to meet and even surpass the security posture of personal computing products. SecureIT’s open-source framework lays the groundwork for the development of a more effective methodology and technology to defend these crucial systems.
“This contract puts SecureIT at the leading edge of idea generation for technical vulnerabilities and exploits,” said David Trout, President of SecureIT. “We will be able to harness and direct the creativity and insights of bright minds around the computing world to make key systems more secure.” Doug Britton, SecureIT’s Cyber Practice Managing Director says, “this advanced understanding of attack techniques will give SecureIT’s customers confidence that their audits and penetration tests are guided by the research state of the art.”
