Xage Security and Science Applications International Corp. (NYSE: SAIC) will provide zero trust, distributed security and other cybersecurity platforms and services for the Department of Defense and federal agency customers under a strategic partnership.
“Our work with SAIC reflects our focus on the adoption of zero trust in the public sector,” Geoffrey Mattson, CEO of Xage Security, said in a statement published Thursday.
Mattson noted that the two companies will collaborate to deliver zero trust security platforms to the U.S. public sector market and help government infrastructure advance cyber defense initiatives and ensure the security of digital transformation efforts.
Under the partnership, SAIC and Xage’s wholly owned affiliate Xage Security Gov will work together to enable DOD to easily procure platforms for zero trust, privileged access management and edge authentication use cases and provide cybersecurity offerings for the U.S. Air Force’s Cloud Based Command and Control initiative and other programs of record of the U.S. government.
SAIC is developing the CBC2 platform for the Air Force’s Advanced Battle Management System under a $112 million contract awarded in January.
SAIC will also integrate Xage Fabric, Xage’s mesh-based cybersecurity platform, into its portfolio of information technology and operational technology accelerator offerings designed to help customers comply with security mandates for critical infrastructure.
