"Our partnership with IronNet Inc. forms a unique offering to navigate the complexities of the cyberthreat landscape," said Critical Mission Solutions Senior Vice President of Cyber & Intelligence Caesar Nieves. "Leveraging IronNet's advanced collective defense capabilities with ours will help us stay one step ahead of the growing threat of cyberattacks as we anticipate and meet the national security challenges of the future."
IronNet merges industry-leading cybersecurity products with unrivaled customer service to deliver advanced real-time defense across global private and public sectors. Going beyond signature-based detection, IronNet delivers visibility to see unknown threats across the entire enterprise.
"The Jacobs-IronNet partnership represents a powerful combination that will help more organizations detect and prevent sophisticated and damaging nation state cyberattacks, a challenge that has become even more critical following the recent SolarWinds/SUNBURST supply chain attack," said IronNet founder and co-CEO General (Ret.) Keith Alexander. "These types of attacks are extremely stealthy, and difficult to detect — and a Collective Defense strategy provides an effective way to share and receive advanced, real-time information about these behaviors so organizations can take action more quickly."
