Defense Point Security, LLC (DPS) is the choice provider of Cyber Security services to the Federal Government. As a certified small business, DPS is uniquely qualified to provide Government focused cyber security solutions meeting Federal requirements, such as FISMA and NIST while, being flexible to adapt solutions to meet both business and Agency specific requirements.
As a trusted partner since its inception in 2007, DPS and its founders have been solely focused on Cyber Security allowing DPS to grow and maintain a workforce of driven, educated, and mission focused security professionals. Through this focus, DPS has been a leader in designing and implementing cyber security solutions to monitor and respond to targeted advanced persistent threats (APT) as well as insider threats. DPS utilizes a holistic approach to defending cyber networks integrating security engineering and architecture into system design during project adoption to ensure compensating controls are “baked in” during the design phase streamlining the path to system certification. These cyber defense mechanisms are only as effective as those poised to monitor, detect, and respond to threats. DPS provides a new breed of security operations analysts through cross pollination of engineers and analysts to provide analysts with the necessary skill sets to refine event sources to reduce false-positives and increase efficiency while ensuring true-positives are not lost in the noise.
Responding to and preparing for APTs or other targeted attacks require an intricate knowledge of the current cyber landscape. DPS provides vulnerability and exploitation services to map-out the cyber landscape and provide senior leadership with the ability to take the current pulse of their cyber security posture thereby enabling the most effective and efficient use of ever critical IT budgets and resources. A comprehensive solution would not be complete without integrating Information System Security Officers (ISSO) and accrediting officers into the process form design inception to operations and maintenance to ensure continuous monitoring is achieved and cyber defenses are checked and refined to ensure not only monitoring but continuous improvement. This commitment to continuous improvement has resulted in a variety of awards, including: 2016 Washington Post's Top Workplaces, 2016 Virginia Business Best Places to Work #1 Winner for Medium Employer, as well as #1 Winner for Small Employer two years in a row, 2014 and 2015. DPS was also placed on the 2014 Inc. 5000 List - #11 Top Security Companies, #745 Overall, and listed #366 in the world on the CyberSecurity 500 List. – less
