The Award database is continually updated throughout the year. As a result, data for the given year is not complete until April of the following year. Annual Reports data is a snapshot of agency reported information for that year and hence might look different from the live data in the Awards Information charts.

  1. AI-based Endpoint Defender (ABED)

    SBC: Assured Information Security, Inc.            Topic: AF173002

    Existing endpoint defense solutions often rely on file signature blacklists and patterns derived from static analysis. These techniques, while proficient at mitigating the specific threats they are designed to detect, offer little protection against modern file and document formats that allow for the embedding of arbitrary data.AIS proposes ABED to detect and prevent malware and exploits in less t ...
