US Army Tasks Aqua Security With Protecting Cloud-Native Applications

The U.S. Army has awarded Boston-based Aqua Security a multimillion-dollar contract for cyber protection services aimed at enabling cloud expansion, zero-trust implementation and secure software development.

Aqua announced that it will provide a cloud-native application protection platform consisting of a set of security and compliance capabilities that can rapidly identify and neutralize risk throughout the software development process using automation.

The security applications that comprise CNAPP include shift-left artifact scanning, infrastructure-as-code scanning, cloud and Kubernetes security posture management, and runtime cloud workload protection platforms.

Albert Nieves, vice president of federal sales and a member of the Potomac Officers Club, said efforts will go toward facilitating the Army’s goal of accelerating cloud modernization, Aqua said.

In January, the Army announced that it would spend $290 million on cloud migration efforts. Army Undersecretary Gabe Camarillo said the transition would facilitate zero trust, rapid software development and wider access to data for decision-making.

Meanwhile, Raj Iyer, the Department of the Army’s former chief information officer and a past Wash100 awardee, shared plans to award the $1 billion Enterprise Application Modernization and Migration contract by the end of June.
