IAI Awarded U.S. Air Force Contract to Continue Development of a Capability to Automatically Reconfigure IT Assets in Response to Cyber-Attacks

ROCKVILLE, Md. — Nov. 29, 2019 — Intelligent Automation, Incorporated (IAI), a technology innovation company, announced today that it has been awarded a follow-on contract by the U.S. Air Force to continue the development of a capability that automatically reconfigures a protected, complex, multi-tiered application in response to an ongoing cyber-attack.

In this contract, IAI will continue to design and implement software capabilities such as providing new network addresses for assets, reconfiguring protection assets, and even changing the cloud infrastructure provider to make the protected asset’s attack surface rapidly unrecognizable. High degrees of automation will be used to minimize the burden on administrators.

IAI’s cyber research team creates tools to evaluate and mitigate attacks using the newest AI techniques. These solutions employ a variety of autonomous detection and mitigation strategies, including user behavior monitoring, network traffic monitoring, moving target defenses, and run-time monitoring of applications. IAI’s techniques allow for in-depth analysis of anomalies and provide additional insight into attacks and improved responses.

“IAI is proud to have been selected by the U.S. Air Force to develop innovative technologies for automated cyber defenses,” said Vikram Manikonda, President and CEO of IAI.
