IronNet Announces Agreement with a Gulf Cooperation Council Country to Provide Collective Defense for Critical National Infrastructure
IronNet’s largest international Amazon Web Services deployment will enable real-time collaboration between public and private properties
MCLEAN, Va.--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- IronNet, Inc. (NYSE: IRNT) (“IronNet”), an innovative leader Transforming Cybersecurity Through Collective Defense℠, today announced the execution of a multi-year contract with a Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC) country —which is remaining anonymous to help protect its operational security—to enable it to better defend its most important governmental, financial, and infrastructure enterprises, country-wide, against cyber attacks.
The GCC country will use IronNet’s leading AI-based Network Detection and Response (NDR) solution, as well as the IronNet Collective Defense℠ platform, to facilitate real-time, collaborative cyber defense spanning key ministries and enterprises, as well as between public and private organizations in an effort to more quickly detect vulnerabilities across critical industry and government sectors.
The Amazon Web Services (AWS) backbone of the IronNet Collective Defense platform will enable the country to deploy the solution quickly across hundreds of enterprises and maintain a dynamic cyber radar view of threats on enterprise networks comprehensively and at network speed. Today’s agreement represents IronNet’s largest AWS cybersecurity deployment in this region to date.
“We are proud to be recognized by this visionary GCC country for our Collective Defense platform, which enables anonymized, real-time collaboration and a more proactive approach to combating cyber adversaries,” said General (Ret.) Keith Alexander, Co-CEO and Founder of IronNet. “Enabling public-private partnerships is a critical part of helping this country strengthen their cybersecurity posture in the face of escalating cyber threats.”
The IronNet Collective Defense platform is the first automated cyber solution that delivers threat knowledge and intelligence across industries at machine speed. By leveraging advanced AI-driven NDR capabilities, it can detect and prioritize anomalous activity inside individual enterprise network environments. The platform analyzes threat detections across the community to identify broad attack patterns and provides anonymized intelligence back to all community members in real time, giving all members early insight into potential incoming attacks. This increased visibility of known and unknown cyber threats, combined with the ability to collaborate in real time, can help improve effectiveness of cyber defenders by allowing for faster triage and stronger response capabilities.
Government entities and private organizations across the United States and around the world have already adopted IronNet’s Collective Defense platform to build dedicated communities to protect national, state, and local critical infrastructure. These communities enable cyber defenders to break down traditional silos, prioritize threat alerts, share intelligence, triage threats, and pool resources against attacks that frequently target sectors of critical infrastructure simultaneously.
