Marine Corps Grants AttackIQ Platform Continuous Authority to Operate Designation

The U.S. Marine Corps Recruiting Command has granted breach and attack simulation solutions provider AttackIQ a continuous authorization to operate, enabling the command to support continuous active penetration testing.

Thurman Dubberly, deputy chief information officer at MCRC, said the partnership with AttackIQ will enable the command to provide near-real-time answers to whether an organization is vulnerable to a certain exploit.

The BAS platform is used by several U.S. government agencies – from the legislative branch to defense units – to validate their security continuously and achieve a threat-informed defense at scale, AttackIQ said.

Carl Wright, chief commercial officer at AttackIQ, said the company is honored to help the service validate the effectiveness of its existing security measures using the technology and knowledge it gained through years of addressing the fast-changing threat landscape.

In September 2022, the U.S. Army allowed Iron Bow Technologies to integrate the AttackIQ Security Optimization Platform across the service, allowing it to improve its capabilities to defend against cyberattacks.

AttackIQ also deployed the platform across the General Services Administration’s operations in June 2023.
