IAI Awarded U.S. Army Contract to Develop a Ransomware Detection, Mitigation, and Recovery Solution for Computer Memory Systems

ROCKVILLE, Md.—December 18, 2019Intelligent Automation, Incorporated (IAI), a technology innovation company, announced today that it has been awarded a contract by the U.S. Army to  enhance the operational readiness and resiliency of Army and DoD information systems with new approaches to detect, mitigate, and recover from ransomware.

In this contract, IAI will deploy a three layer strategy to address ransomware attacks. First, IAI will develop new methods that detect ransomware and eliminate ransomware before it attacks the system. Next IAI will deploy methods to isolate and disable software that attempts to perform cryptographic operations, and lastly develop methods to quarantine and recover from an attack that do not require use of backups.

“IAI is proud to have been selected by the U.S. Army to explore innovative technologies to meet technology gaps in ransomware mitigation,” said Vikram Manikonda, President and CEO of IAI.

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.
