Partnership enables government agencies to target, hunt, and disrupt advanced cyber threats

Herndon, VA — (March 1, 2016)DLT Solutions (DLT), a leading public sector technology company, and Sqrrl, the cyber threat hunting company, today announced a partnership to deliver Sqrrl Enterprise to government agencies. Sqrrl Enterprise is a threat detection and response platform that enables organizations to target, hunt, and disrupt advanced cyber threats by employing User and Entity Behavior Analytics (UEBA).

“Recent cyber incidents teach us that advanced cyber adversaries will be able to defeat static perimeter defenses, and government agencies need to supplement their traditional detection tools,” said Alan Marc Smith, President and CEO, DLT. “Sqrrl’s threat hunting platform will provide critical security coverage for our public sector customers and help them protect their mission.”

Sqrrl’s threat hunting solution enables government organizations to proactively and iteratively detect and investigate advanced adversaries, including nation-state, criminal, and terrorist threats, that have evaded traditional cyber defenses. Sqrrl combines behavioral analytics and machine learning with linked data and “kill chain” visualizations to identify and investigate these adversaries.  Leveraging Big Data storage and analytic techniques, Sqrrl Enterprise scales to massive datasets present in many government agencies while ensuring compliance with security and privacy requirements.

“Sqrrl’s UEBA capabilities are the future of cybersecurity,” said Sqrrl CEO Mark Terenzoni. “Sqrrl’s heritage is in the U.S. Intelligence Community and gives us a unique perspective on how to best identify and defeat advanced cyber threats. We chose to partner with DLT because of their deep customer relationships and extensive government procurement expertise. Working together, we can accelerate the government’s ability to quickly leverage these advanced cyber capabilities.”

DLT has been working with U.S. government customers for more than two decades and has developed the in-depth technical capabilities government agencies require to support their evolving IT architectures. Sqrrl is the newest member of DLT’s Cybersecurity Practice. The Practice is led by cybersecurity veteran, Ed Shapiro, and offers simplified procurement for cybersecurity solutions through several major contract vehicles including, NIH CIO-CS, multiple DoD ESI agreements, SEWP V and GSA IT 70.
