Fortress Information Security participated in a virtual war game scenario during a five-day technical support and operational analysis exercise by the U.S. Army Combat Capabilities Development Command.
The company said Thursday it used its File Integrity Assurance tool to detect a corrupted presentation file deployed by the opposing team during the mock battle.
Conducting a technical support and operational analysis, Fortress worked with other participants to protect the Army's files and isolate the corrupted slide deck.
"In this case, we provided a short demonstration and then let the soldiers put FIA to work on real-world problems and attempted intrusions“”it worked as intended, and they succeeded," said John Cofrancesco, vice president of business development at Fortress.
DEVCOM invited organizations from laboratories, industry and the academia to submit proposals on technologies that could operate in austere locations.
Twenty out of 165 applicants were called on to compete against one another in mock battleground tests.
The event was held from March 15 to 19.
Fortress offers operational technologies, vulnerability and third-party risk management services to commercial and federal government customers.
