ALPHARETTA, Ga., April 26, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Dispersive Technologies, Inc. (www.dispersivetechnologies.com) won the Most Innovative Solution award at the Armed Forces Communications and Electronics Association (AFCEA) Defensive Cyber Operations Symposium in Washington, D.C.April 20-22.
Members from the AFCEA Technology and Cyber committees judged presentations from more than 60 defense contractors. Dispersive Technologies' winning entry was titled "Network Obfuscation To Confuse And Deceive The Adversary."
"United States adversaries are launching increasingly sophisticated cyberattacks on the complicated web of networked systems upon which our military relies," explained Robert W. Twitchell, Jr., President and CEO of Dispersive Technologies. "These attacks impair connectivity, degrade mission effectiveness and threaten lives. The AFCEA judges recognized that we offer a truly unique solution to this problem–Dispersive™ Virtualized Networks."
Dispersive™ Virtualized Networks mask cyber personas and disguise the points of origin and communications by veiling IP addresses, ports and geographic areas of operations. This solution yields high, tangible benefits to our military by allowing it to monitor adversaries' networks and websites anonymously and by obfuscating IP attribution for network traffic.
Twitchell, a subject matter expert for the Department of Defense, feels innovation is crucial to defeating cyberterrorists.
"Whether it's the military, government or corporate world, everyone has relied on basically the same network defense capabilities for years," he said. "Not surprisingly, rogue nations and hackers have developed a playbook for how to hack U.S. networks. As the headlines reflect, they're succeeding. Dispersive is turning this around. We're developing holistic, cutting-edge solutions to our nation's cybersecurity problems, solutions designed to discourage and frustrate even the most diligent hacker. We are honored to have our work in the area of cybersecurity recognized by AFCEA."
