John Hynes, CEO of Applied Insight

Applied Insight announced on Thursday that the U.S. Air Force Mobility Command has awarded a new $16 million task order to provide cybersecurity and information assurance services.

Under the task order, the AI cybersecurity team will provide specialized technical services in support of AMC’s command and control systems, ensuring their ability to operate securely on Department of Defense, Air Force and AMC enterprise networks.

“We’ve been proud to serve the Air Force for many years and are delighted to be extending our support to AMC,” said John Hynes, Applied Insight CEO. “AMC plays a linchpin role in enabling the national security mission, and it is critical their systems operate at the very highest levels of security,” he added.

“For this task, we’ll be leveraging our cybersecurity team’s industry-leading expertise in defensive cyber operations and intimacy with DoD risk management framework compliance. We’re looking forward to playing our part in sustaining AMC’s ability to support U.S. armed forces whenever and wherever they are needed around the world,” Hynes explained.

AI’s engineers will be responsible for ensuring that C2 system performance is aligned with stringent DoD, Air Force, and AMC cybersecurity, RMF and system authorization standards. A major emphasis will be placed on standardizing security documentation and the engineering, security testing, auditing and intrusion detection functions across the C2 program as part of the ongoing effort to ensure each system is accredited and certified.

This new mission with AMC adds to AI’s substantial portfolio of complex cyber work that the company is undertaking for a number of customers across the intelligence, defense and federal civilian communities.
