Intelligent Waves, Horizon3 .ai Partner to Deliver Cybersecurity Resilience for Special Operators
Virginia-headquartered Intelligent Waves announced that it has formed a strategic collaboration with cybersecurity company Horizon3 .ai to support next-generation cybersecurity protection in DevOps for the Department of Defense’s special operations community. The partnership enables the mitigation and prevention of malicious actors trying to gain or deny access to critical networks that support the Pentagon, Intelligent Waves said Thursday.
Intelligent Waves, an information technology consulting firm, said that under the partnership, it can utilize Horizon3 .ai’s NodeZero autonomous penetration testing platform to validate architecture deployments and ensure customer environments are secure and operationally ready for users. The company added that the platform’s inclusion in its pipeline significantly reduces the overhead and decreases deployment validation time while simultaneously improving security insight into customers’ environments.
It was further explained that NodeZero acts as a force multiplier, helping preserve or increase margins by enabling Horizon3 .ai’s partners to cover more accounts with a smaller team. The platform continuously assesses an enterprise’s attack surface to “identify ways a skilled attacker could chain together harvested credentials, misconfigurations, dangerous product defaults and exploitable vulnerabilities.”
John Hammes, chief strategy officer at Intelligent Waves, warned that rogue actors are constantly on the prowl for vulnerabilities. He said that NodeZero “provides warfighters with an effective, battle-tested solution” to fight off any attack that could potentially be launched.
Snehal Antani, chief executive officer and co-founder of Horizon3 .ai, said today’s malicious actors “create threat vectors that you never would imagine to be exploitable.” He explained that the company’s offering helps customers understand their cybersecurity risk profile so they can harden their security postures with repeated penetration tests.
