Phosphorus Cybersecurity has received a contract from the U.S. Air Force to develop a technology that could help the service protect its internet of things-based devices in a 5G environment from vulnerabilities.

The company said Tuesday it will conduct research and apply its proprietary technology to help secure the service’s 5G-enabled devices from cyber threats under the AFWERX Small Business Innovation Research 20.3 Phase I contract.

“Adapting Phosphorus’s solution to 5G in support of this effort is critical to promoting the zero-trust environment necessary to secure our defense networks,” said Chris Rouland, founder and CEO of Phosphorus Cybersecurity.

Phosphorus’ platform works to automate patching, credential management, inventory and remediation of vulnerabilities to protect IoT devices from threats. The company also provides a scalable zero-trust infrastructure to help organizations comply with the IoT Cybersecurity Improvement Act.
