Norse Corp. has won a $1.9 million contract with the Energy Department to help detect live threats to national critical infrastructure owners and operators in the energy sector in collaboration with FireEye.
Norse will provide threat intelligence services for DOE’s cybersecurity risk information sharing program meant to help the energy sector identify and mitigate threats, Norse said Thursday.
“We are thrilled to be selected as the prime contractor for this immensely important project,“ said Sam Glines, CEO of Norse.
“Precise attack intelligence is essential for delivering operational efficiencies and security effectiveness throughout the organization's entire security infrastructure,” Glines added.
DOE will also gain access to Norse’s cloud-based live attack intelligence resources such as the DarkList and Norse DarkViking.
Norse will combine its live attack intelligence platform with FireEye hardware for threat traffic analysis.
