The Justice Department has awarded Peraton a $9.45 million contract to further enhance intrusion analysis capabilities and improve malware triage through automation, helping analysts respond to potential threats.
“Countering sophisticated cyber threats requires advanced technical capabilities that are executed within a high tempo mission environment,” said Roger Mason, president of the Space, Intelligence and Cyber sector. “We’re honored to be selected by the Department for our next-generation capabilities that prevent cyber attacks and help keep vital information flowing.”
Through deep dive forensic analysis and malware reverse engineering, Peraton analysts will engage cutting-edge tools and techniques to determine the specifics of computer and network intrusions, and conduct full life cycle analysis of digital media. Specialized engineers will support the mission through the design, development and maintenance of a malware triage and repository system.
