Kratos Introduces Cybersecurity Assessment Service To Address Unique Requirements Of The Satellite Industry

SAN DIEGO, March 19, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Kratos Defense & Security Solutions, Inc. (Nasdaq:KTOS), a leading National Security Solutions provider, announced today that it has introduced a new SATCOM Cybersecurity Assessment service that addresses the increasing threats and unique requirements of the satellite industry. With cybersecurity legislation soon requiring the application of NIST Information Assurance (IA) standards for all U.S. critical infrastructure, including satellite communications, the Kratos SATCOM Cybersecurity Assessment will help ensure compliance readiness for these forthcoming security regulations.

By addressing the unique security challenges the satellite industry faces, the Kratos SATCOM Cybersecurity Assessment helps satellite organizations identify and prioritize threats and their mitigation. Performing a rigorous gap analysis, Kratos delivers detailed recommendations and a corrective actions roadmap. The result is a detailed view of satellite network preparedness along with recommended steps required to mitigate risks and ensure compliance with applicable regulations, standards and guidelines.

"Organizations involved in satellite communications are playing a vital role in our nation's critical infrastructure -- a role that understandably needs to be secure," said Christopher Fountain, Sr. Vice President of Kratos' SecureInfo. "The Kratos SATCOM Cybersecurity Assessment provides independent, third party analysis from experts who understand the unique challenges of satellite communications. It helps satellite operators and service providers determine where they stand and what it will take to be compliant to ensure they stay ahead of the curve in a rapidly evolving real-world threat environment."

With 30 years as a leader in the satellite communications industry, Kratos is one of the few cybersecurity providers that understands the SATCOM industry and has the necessary related expertise to help organizations mitigate risk and effectively demonstrate compliance. Kratos' products and services are used by more than 75 percent of the world's satellite operators and 85 percent of U.S. based space missions. Kratos has successfully performed thousands of IA assessments and validations and was recently designated as an Air Force Agent of the Certifying Authority (ACA) for Space Systems. Commercial satellite operators and service providers can use the Kratos SATCOM Cybersecurity Assessment results to proactively reduce their risk and to evaluate readiness in advance of regulations and enforcement.
