Chiron to build 'secure enclave' under $10.7M contract

Washington Technology | 06.26.15

Chiron Technology Services of Columbia, Md., has won a $10.7 million with a government agency to provide secure collaboration space on the agency's network.

The company declined to name the agency citing confidentiality requirements.

Chiron will use virtual machines and network resources to create what it calls a "secure enclave" for the agency's corporate network. The network will provide a secure development environment for analytic applications and host sensitive data repositories.

The company has been supporting this customer for five years.

Chiron is 10 years old and specializes in helping agencies with cyber training, critical infrastructure protection, responding to cyber-attacks and mitigating threats.
