COMPANY WHERE WON: Peraton Inc.

PROJECT DESCRIPTION: In twelve months, Peraton created a secure, cloud-first enterprise architecture — from scratch — to transform outdated and insecure technology that presented significant risk to the company. This massive digital and cyber transformation harnessed best-in-class technology to securely connect 3,500 users, thousands of endpoints, devices, and servers, and 32 branch offices around the world. The program delivered a zero-trust security model and established all required policies, processes, training, compliance, data protections, security operations, threat detection, and incident response to comply with stringent Federal requirements, all while executing the business strategy flawlessly and facing continuous sophisticated (and unsuccessful) cyber-attacks.
