Rockville, MD, August 5, 2020– Acquired Data Solutions (ADS), a leading-edge technology and engineering solution provider, announces its partnership with KDM Analytics. Together, the organizations will provide the federal government and equipment suppliers with Blade RiskManager (BRM), a fully-automated cyber risk analysis and risk measurement product.
BRM leverages artificial intelligence technology and a ten-year cybersecurity knowledge base to provide a one-stop source to store, manage, and trace all evidence regarding operational and system risk. BRM improves confidence in decision-making and reduces the time and cost of a NIST Risk Management Framework (RMF) assessment by precisely focusing risk-assessment resources.
As the cybersecurity threat risk worsens, DoD is improving information protections with its Cybersecurity Maturity Model Certification (CMMC). This is now a requirement for defense contractors and other vendors performing work for the DoD and other federal agencies.
“The overlap between information technology (IT) and operational technology (OT) networks is forcing many organizations to re-assess and improve their cybersecurity,” said Steve Seiden, President of Acquired Data Solutions. “The exposure of legacy OT devices to the internet has led to new risks that can have major impacts on critical national infrastructure providers. Urgent, proactive strategies are needed to ensure OT cybersecurity develops to the same maturity as IT cybersecurity. Our partnership with KDM Analytics enhances our ability to address these challenges and help our federal government customers prepare for compliance with CMMC and NIST RMF to support critical business needs.”
