WASHINGTON – December 13, 2016 — Waverley Labs, a pioneer in software defined perimeters (SDP) and digital risk reduction solutions, today announced that the U.S. General Services Administration (GSA) has authorized the addition of Waverley’s patent-pending PantherTM Risk Analytics & Artificial Intelligence Engine. Offered under the WAVERLEY LABS GSA contract (GS35-F-047GA) Federal Supply IT Schedule 70 and purchased from the www.GSAelibrary.gsa.gov website, PantherTM reduces risk from the cyber threat by orchestrating and controlling Software Defined Perimeters (SDP).
The GSA IT Schedule 70 award allows the federal, state, and local governments to purchase products through a streamlined process and pre-negotiated pricing that will save them time, resources, and money.
Waverley Labs’ PantherTM is based on nearly 20 years of experience developing large, attack-sensing and warning solutions used by a variety of Government organizations including the DoD.
PantherTM orchestrates and controls Waverley Labs’ industry-first open source SDP solution for securing critical applications and infrastructures. SDP is core to a new security and risk reduction paradigm that establishes an undetectable application infrastructure to eliminate all network-based attacks. Implementation of SDP enables organizations to redirect and apply much needed resources to manage insider threats.
Waverley Labs worked closely with the CSA Software Defined Perimeter Working Group which developed the SDP specification adopted by the Cloud Security Alliance and its members. The primary effect of the SDP is that it transforms the application infrastructure into an effectively invisible or “black cloud” environment that shows no domain name system (DNS) information or IP addresses.
Waverley Labs was recently selected by the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) and Technology Doctorate (S&T) to develop an open source Software Defined Perimeter (SDP) to defend against large and sophisticated Distributed Denial of Service (DDoS) attacks. The project titled “An Open Source Project for a Software-Defined Perimeter to Defend Cloud Apps from DDoS” was awarded through Broad Agency Announcement HSHQDC-14-R- B00017 and is part of the DHS S&T Cyber Security Division’s larger Distributed Denial of Service Defenses (DDoSD) program.
“Government Agencies are mandated to reduce risks from the cyber threat and increase security. The SDP provides an improved and integrated way to do just that” said Juanita Koilpillai, Founder and CEO of Waverley Labs. “I am encouraged that agencies are starting to customize SDP for their unique agency requirements to protect their most critical applications and infrastructures.”
SDPs are emerging as a core component in a new security paradigm to reduce or eliminate risk and incorporating industry input and lessons learned from successful commercial implementations of SDP by leading enterprises such as Coca-Cola, Mazda, and Google.
