Fort Myers, Florida
January 6, 2020

Cigent® Technology is pleased to announce that it has been awarded a Phase 1 SBIR contract by US Air Force Research Laboratory and AFWERX to present the company’s cybersecurity offerings to various Air Force end users in order to demonstrate the overall capabilities that Cigent's solutions bring to the table in preventing exfiltration of sensitive data. The contract also allows any DoD agency to make a ‘sole source’ purchase from the company.

About the USA SBIR Program

AFRL and AFWERX have partnered to streamline the Small Business Innovation Research process in an attempt to speed up the experience, broaden the pool of potential applicants and decrease bureaucratic overhead. Beginning in SBIR 18.2, and now in 19.3, the Air Force has begun offering 'Special' SBIR topics that are faster, leaner and open to a broader range of innovations.'

About Cigent

Cigent is pioneering a threat aware endpoint data protection solution for Windows 10 that allows organizations to centrally manage and block access to both user and company sensitive files in the event of a breach. Cigent D3E™ relies on integrations with leading enterprise security solutions and its own suite of machine learning, deception, and file system sensors to detect suspicious activity and respond by locking down protected files with a step-up authentication.  When paired with Cigent D3E, Cigent Bare Metal™ storage devices add an optional layer of threat aware firmware based hardware encryption to protected files that is tethered to the D3E endpoint and is almost impossible to bypass.

Cigent plays well with other security solutions such as Zero Trust, AV-AM, and EDR via an open API. Cigent D3E offers an additional layer of protection against malware, ransomware, insider threats, file-less malware, network intrusions, and lost /stolen devices. Cigent's particular focus on firmware based detection and response features has led to strong interest in highly sensitive applications.

Cigent and Cigent Bare Metal are registered trademarks of Cigent Technology, Inc. in the United States and other jurisdictions.
