The U.S. Army Cyber Command (ARCYBER) has awarded a five-year, $6.5 million cybersecurity contract to Ashburn, Virginia-based Applied Insight and Warrenton, Virginia-based DV United, a small business joint venture that provides federal government information technology. Under the contract, Applied Insight and DV United will be responsible for managing, maintaining and enhancing the ARCYBER User Activity Monitoring Program (UAM) for insider threats. The company and the joint venture will provide insider threat detection and mitigation, data loss prevention, security information and event management (SIEM) support, cyber data analytics and visualization, cyber behavior heuristics analysis, cyber trend analysis, insider threat best practices and policy integration, and insider threat case management and incident reporting, according to a statement from Applied Insight.

"Applied Insight and our colleagues at DV United are excited and honored to be working with the Army's Cyber Command," said Greg Walker, president of Applied Insight. "We have a strong record of performance with the Army, which has given us a deep understanding of their cyber mission and systems. This, together with our ability to aggregate and provide actionable information from millions of disparate cyber data sources, will be key to our success on the program. We look forward to delivering on this vital mission for our customer."

"Our deep experience providing cyber and information security mission solutions to the government has assisted in securing federal networks, combating cybercrime and protecting critical infrastructure," Thomas Dalton, chief operating officer of DV United. "We are proud to be teamed with AI and honored to have this opportunity to once again support the Army's critical missions."
