Recorded Future today announced it has been awarded a Production-Other Transaction Agreement (P-OTA) contract facilitated by the Defense Innovation Unit (DIU) for threat intelligence, paving the way for the company to provide real-time threat analysis to approved federal agencies on an expedited basis.
The P-OTA, with a ceiling value of $50 million, also marks the first P-OTA contract awarded by the U.S. Cyber Command (USCYBERCOM) Enterprise.
Recorded Future delivers relevant, real-time threat intelligence powered by machine learning to manage risk. The company’s patented technology automatically collects and analyzes information and provides invaluable context for better decision-making on potential threats.
Under this contract, Recorded Future will provide commercial threat reporting to support USCYBERCOM’s ability to direct the operation and defense of specified Department of Defense Information Networks (DODIN).
“We are grateful to be awarded this contract with USCYBERCOM and look forward to sharing our intelligence to better secure federal government infrastructure. The DIU team was a true partner throughout this process, from prototype to production. They’ve helped to reinforce bridges between private and public organizations, empowering those on the front lines of cyber defense to act quickly with the context they need to make critical decisions.” — Dr. Christopher Ahlberg, Co-Founder and CEO, Recorded Future
The P-OTA, finalized on September 26, 2019, was issued based on Recorded Future’s successful completion of their prototype OTA with DIU.
