Kratos SecureInfo Awarded License As A Special Agent Of The Certifying Authority By Air Force Space Command

SAN DIEGO, April 8, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Kratos Defense & Security Solutions, Inc. (Nasdaq:KTOS), a leading National Security Solutions provider, announced today that Kratos SecureInfo, Kratos' dedicated business group of cybersecurity experts, has been awarded a license as a Special Agent of the Certifying Authority (ACA) from Air Force Space Command (AFSPC). Kratos SecureInfo will leverage its satellite and cybersecurity subject matter expertise to provide comprehensive information security assessments in support of space systems.

Kratos SecureInfo's selection is based on 30 years of leadership in the satellite industry, its understanding of the unique security requirements for space systems, and its extensive track record of successfully helping the Air Force secure its information assets. Kratos SecureInfo will serve as an independent and trusted agent, conduct system security assessments, and make certification determination recommendations to the Space Certifying Authority in direct support of program managers and system owners.

"Kratos SecureInfo is one of the only cybersecurity providers with the expertise to support both general information technology and specialized space systems," said Christopher Fountain, Sr. Vice President of the Kratos SecureInfo business group. "This award builds upon our existing work supporting the Air Force Senior Information Assurance Officer (AF SIAO) with security assessments of IT systems. We look forward to supporting the goal of streamlining the validation process and enhancing the overall effectiveness of the Air Force Space Command Certification & Accreditation (C&A) process."

Recently Kratos SecureInfo also introduced its new SATCOM Cybersecurity Assessment service that addresses the increasing threats and unique requirements for the commercial satellite industry. The assessment delivers a detailed view of satellite network preparedness along with recommended steps to mitigate risks and ensure compliance with applicable regulations, standards and guidelines.

As a leader in the satellite communications industry for more than 30 years, Kratos is one of the few cybersecurity providers that understands the SATCOM and space industries and has the necessary related expertise to help organizations mitigate risk and demonstrate compliance. Its products and services are used by more than 75 percent of the world's satellite operators and 80 percent of U.S.-based space missions. Kratos SecureInfo has successfully performed thousands of IA assessments and validations.
