BALTIMORE, Aug. 15, 2014 /PRNewswire-iReach/ -- Maddrix, a leading provider of incident response services and technology focused on targeted network attacks and insider threats, announced that it was recently accredited by the National Security Agency as part of the inaugural class of elite Cyber Incident Response Assistance (CIRA) providers under the NSA's newly established National Security Cyber Assistance Program (NSCAP).
The NSA NSCAP mission is to address the growing concern regarding targeted network attacks across U.S. government agencies, leverage industry expertise to protect national interests, and develop and maintain an accredited list of highly qualified cyber security providers who owners of National Security Systems (NSS) can call upon for incident response assistance on classified, unclassified, and national security systems.
As part of the accreditation process, Maddrix was evaluated against 21 areas of incident response services including its ability to consistently deliver state-of-the-art services, develop and maintain highly skilled staff, and keep pace with advanced threat actors through training, lessons learned, and shared situational awareness.
"Our extensive experience supporting U.S. government agencies, critical infrastructure, and private sector organizations, combined with our advanced technical solutions, facilitated our ability to successfully meet this demanding evaluation criteria." said Ron Shaffer, Maddrix chief technology officer.
"In addition to traditional espionage activities, many foreign governments use their intelligence services and military cyber warfare units to conduct large-scale industrial espionage against western private-sector organizations and destructive attacks against critical infrastructure. The benefits of industrial espionage and destructive attacks far outweigh the risks to these countries, making targeted attacks a long-term strategic problem for the U.S. government, our nation's critical infrastructure, and private industry. Having a trusted third-party like the NSA evaluate and accredit incident response providers helps victim organizations by providing a vetted list of vendors to choose from." said Stephen Windsor, Maddrix president.
Maddrix is a Washington, D.C. area professional services and technology company focused on helping government and private sector organizations proactively identify targeted attacks and protect their trade secrets, mission critical programs, and national security information. Leveraging our extensive experience with U.S. government agencies and private sector organizations, Maddrix has developed professional services and technical solutions that help organizations with the paradigm shift from traditional, signature and compliance based risk management, to a proactive, threat-based model that protects critical assets and addresses targeted attacks.
Maddrix participates in the National Security Agency's PISA program and was granted a Provisional Industrial Security Approval in April, 2013.
