Blueskytec awarded Defence and Security Accelerator (DASA) funding by the UK Ministry of Defence DSTL (Defence Science and Technology Laboratory).

Blueskytec, a technology company based in Bath in the UK, announce they have been awarded Defence and Security Accelerator (DASA) funding in response to the IFA 029 Reducing the Cyber-attack surface challenge, by the UK Ministry of Defence Dstl (Defence Science and Technology Laboratory) based at Porton Down. 

The contract will demonstrate Blueskytec’s application of their unique KeySpace encryption technology in a representative cyber range. Blueskytec’s technology is designed to remove the risk of cyber-attacks in control systems and operational technology (OT) and is specifically appropriate to advanced persistent threats (APTs) and zero-day attacks where traditional cyber security solutions depend on sophisticated behavioural tools, analysis and patch management. 

The cyber range will comprise testbeds representing typical military systems and demonstrate the significant reduction of the cyber-attack surface (RCAS) by launching cyber-attacks (defined by the MITRE ICS ATT&CK database, the Common Weakness Enumeration Top 25 and the recent PIPEDREAM cyber-attack suite). Please feel free to contact us for more information and how we can protect your OT from cyber attacks.
