Digital Management Wins $10 Million Dollar Contract to Support the Advancement of Trusted Computing (TC) Technologies for the Air Force Research Laboratory (AFRL)
Company’s Depth of Experience in Cybersecurity and TC Technologies is Key to its Role Driving Technology Strategy and Adoption
Bethesda, MD—February 24, 2011—Digital Management, Inc. (www.digitalmanagement.com), a leading IT solutions and business strategy consulting firm, announced today it has been awarded a $10 million dollar contract to support the advancement of Trusted Computing Technologies for the Air Force Research Laboratory (AFRL). The contract covers execution of a sustained, multifaceted program that combines both technology and communications strategy and execution.
Under the contract, Digital Management will develop a detailed TC technology roadmap, develop, test, and demonstrate TC reference implementations, and conduct strategic technical outreach to support the ongoing development and adoption of emerging TC technologies.
TC technologies show tremendous promise as a new approach to address today’s cybersecurity crisis. Trusted devices use TC technologies to securely and reliably report on their identity and state so their safety can be verified before they are used. Commercial TC Technologies available today block several critical cybersecurity threats:
- Theft of data at rest
- Theft of software certificates and encryption keys
- Unauthorized network access
- Impersonation of authorized devices
- Network access by devices with corrupted software
“We’re proud to help AFRL lead the charge in promoting these very powerful technologies in government, business, and the technology vendor community,” said Jay Sunny Bajaj, Digital Management’s President and CEO. “Trusted Computing represents a new paradigm for cybersecurity – one where trusted devices make it possible for us to live more confidently in our connected world.”
