B.E.A.T. Wins Big Data

SAN ANTONIO, Texas, January 14, 2019 – Business Enabled Acquisition & Technology, LLC, (BEAT) and Enlighten IT Consulting, LLC, (EITC) were recently awarded a contract with the U.S. Air Force to deploy a big data architecture in the commercial cloud that provides data fusion analytics, cyber operator training and on-site support.


The goal of the contract is to enable more effective cyber operations for the defense of critical networks, and to operationalize big data analytics within Air Forces Cyber (AFCYBER). Backed by the strength of EITC’s proprietary Rapid Analytic Deployment and Management Framework (RADMF®), these solutions will allow teams to hunt for adversaries across services and platforms in collaboration with each other, reduce the time adversaries have on the network, and increase the effectiveness of U.S. Department of Defense Information Network (DoDIN) defenses to prevent future access.


The award is part of a larger effort to unify capabilities across the DoD, and build a broader unified cyber architecture based on the Big Data Platform (BDP). These tools will link the Defense Information Systems Agency (DISA), the U.S. Army, United States Cyber Command (USCYBERCOM), and other federal agencies on a common platform for analytic and application-sharing. The platform will increase opportunities for reciprocity – including an Approval to Operate (ATO) designation – to help reduce Total Cost of Ownership (TCO) for those adopting the solution.


“Being an integral part of the national Security apparatus, helping defend us air force networks is an honor” said matthew benavides, president, business enabled acquisition and technology
