U.S.Air Force Awards ReFirm Labs $1 Million for IoT Security

By

According to a recent announcement, ReFirm Labs, a provider of proactive IoT and firmware security solutions, has been awarded a $1 million Phase II Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) contract from the U.S. Air Force (USAF) Life Cycle Management Center (AFLCMC). This is a follow-on investment to ReFirm Labs’ $50,000 Phase I contract awarded by AFLCMC in August, and this new contract reportedly will enable larger-scale research on identifying security vulnerabilities in embedded firmware used in USAF aircraft and information systems.

“We're enthusiastic about continuing our collaboration on innovative solutions for the Air Force that address cyber security vulnerabilities and mitigate supply chain risk,” said Derick Naef, CEO, ReFirm Labs. “ReFirm Labs leverages decades of experience securing devices for sensitive national security applications, and we're excited to continue offering our expertise as the Air Force works to define operations on the battlefield of the future.”

ReFirm Labs’ Centrifuge Platform is designed to proactively manage the security of firmware, identify and report firmware abnormalities and vulnerabilities in less than 30 minutes, and aid companies and organizations in quickly analyzing firmware for hidden dangers.
