ARLINGTON, Va., — Endgame, the leader in endpoint protection against targeted attacks, today announced it has won a sole source contract with the U.S. Navy to safeguard endpoints from global attackers. As part of this agreement, the Navy, specifically the U.S. Fleet Cyber Command/U.S. Tenth Fleet, will receive Endgame’s endpoint protection platform to prevent, detect and respond, and hunt for advanced threats to protect critical infrastructure.
“Endgame is honored to enter this partnership with the U.S. Navy,” said Nate Fick, Endgame CEO. “The Navy is widely known as being on the cutting-edge of cybersecurity defenses, and we were happy to exceed their protection requirements during this competitive process. Safeguarding the most targeted organizations across the Department of Defense is an important part of our mission, and we look forward to continuing it with the Navy.”
The U.S. Fleet Cyber Command/U.S. Tenth Fleet will leverage Endgame to protect the entire Navy, including more than 500,000 computers and ships’ hull, mechanical and electrical systems, weapons and navigation systems, aviation systems, and the technology controlling physical devices on bases and facilities. U.S. Fleet Cyber Command/U.S. Tenth Fleet’s mission is to “serve as the Numbered Fleet for Fleet Cyber Command and exercise operational control of assigned forces; to direct and deliver tactical and operational effects in and through cyberspace, space, and the electromagnetic spectrum to Navy commanders worldwide and ensure successful execution of Fleet Cyber Command assigned mission areas.”
Endgame credits this contract win to its heritage protecting the federal government, including the U.S. Air Force, from targeted attacks. Endgame is rapidly becoming the standard endpoint protection platform across the Department of Defense due to its layered protections and ease of use for inexperienced analysts. As the need for more sophisticated protections has expanded into the commercial sector, Endgame’s commercial customer base has grown rapidly, including in critical industries like financial services, healthcare and education. With Endgame, users of any skill level can prevent, stop, and proactively hunt ongoing threats that bypass incumbent security solutions.
The Navy chose Endgame primarily because of its ability to protect against targeted attack techniques and technologies outlined in the MITRE ATT&CK™ Matrix. The MITRE Corporation recently validated Endgame protections across the breadth and depth of the Matrix during a nation-state emulation exercise. Endgame will continue to work with MITRE to redefine the scope of endpoint protection to ensure technologies are truly effective against modern attacks.
