WASHINGTON. The U.S. Air Force's Digital Engineering Enterprise Office (DEEO) has awarded cybersecurity firm Corsha (Tyson's Corner, Virginia) a $1.5 million Phase II Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) contract for an initiative to deploy the Corsha cloud-native, scalable API Security Platform to secure mission-critical data-in-motion across U.S Air Force platforms.
According to company officials, the Corsha approach is to use dynamic, fully automated multi-factor authentication for API [Application Programming Interfaces] security to enable safe, visible, and controllable options to defend against emerging data attacks.
Chris Simkins, CEO of Corsha, says of the contract win: "Our API Security Platform is well-positioned to empower Air Force and DEEO to securely share information across multiple platforms connecting legacy systems and cloud environments."
