Pittsburgh, PA and Huntsville, AL (PRWEB) April 02, 2013
Malcovery®, the leader in delivering actionable intelligence that can be applied to neutralize the threats and actions by cyber criminals in the areas of phishing, spam and malware, announced today it has entered into a strategic partnership with Radiance Technologies, Inc. to provide network security intelligence services as a part of Radiance Technologies’ contract for Agile Cyber Technology (ACT) through the Air Force Research Lab (AFRL). Radiance is one of six contractors selected in July 2012 to provide security services as part of an award valued at up to $300 million.
The ACT program focuses on development of cyber technology capability solutions that address specific user requirements; delivery of prototype technologies for evaluation and feedback in the context of the user's operational environment; and provision of a mechanism for user acquisition of limited product quantities required for operational introduction of technologies. The technical requirements will include rapid research and development, design, prototyping, demonstration, scenario development, experimentation and evaluation, integration, testing, technical installation, transition, and support through initial operations of cyber technologies.
The cyber security research areas include threat avoidance and cyber defense; cyber operations; network exploitation; situational awareness; command and control; modeling, simulation, and war-gaming; cyber infrastructure, and mission assurance.
“We are delighted to partner with Radiance and its team of leading network security professionals to provide enterprise security intelligence solutions for the Air Force Research Labs,” stated Greg Coticchia, President and CEO of Malcovery Security. “Our patented and patent pending technologies that form the basis of the Malcovery software and services were developed specifically to be effective in identifying the source and nature of phishing, spam and malware cyber threats and quickly help stop them.
“We are excited to partner with Malcovery in implementing their solutions as part of this agile approach to delivering cyber technologies that help ensure national security,” stated Senior Vice President Tom Strange of Radiance Technologies. “To dominate the cyberspace environment is dependent on cutting edge technologies being developed by industry leaders such as Radiance, and partnering with Malcovery strengthens our capabilities to deliver them.”
Malcovery was launched last year as a result of an exclusive worldwide license with the University of Alabama at Birmingham (UAB) and based on research conducted at the UAB Center for Information Assurance and Joint Forensics Research (CIA|JFR), the company has quickly gained commercial success with enterprise customers such as eBay, Facebook and VISA.
Securosis, a leading an information security research and advisory firm, recently published a white paper entitled “To Catch A Phish: Email-Based Threat Intelligence” that highlights the cybercrime and security issues that Malcovery addresses.

About Malcovery® Security
Malcovery Security is the leading provider of actionable cyber security intelligence and forensic analysis, delivered through software and services that target cyber criminals and their activities. The company's patented and patent-pending technology provides the ability to identify the ‘root sources’ of cybercrime attacks (servers, perpetrators, locations, etc.), delivering rich actionable intelligence information about cross-brand attacks and targeted attacks, as well as advanced notification of emerging e-mail-based threats.
Unlike services that serve only as a response to these attacks today--services that simply address the symptoms, but cannot provide the intelligence to actually stop the cybercriminal--Malcovery Security’s solutions provide the unique intelligence required to respond effectively to attacks on customers’ brands, to disrupt phishing activities and successfully prosecute cybercriminals.
Malcovery Security is based on technologies developed at the UAB Center for Information Assurance and Joint Forensics Research (CIA|JFR) and has offices in Pittsburgh, PA and Birmingham, AL.
