Former NSA Director and Current CSRA Board Member General Keith Alexander (Ret) Keynotes Launch Event

FALLS CHURCH, VA – CSRA Inc. (NYSE:CSRA) last night introduced its new Cyber Center of Excellence at a special event in Tysons Corner, Va. As part of the launch event, Gen. Keith Alexander (Ret. USA), a member of CSRA’s Board of Directors and former director of the National Security Agency (NSA), delivered the keynote address.

The Cyber Center of Excellence brings together CSRA’s industry-leading experts to provide rapid innovation, consulting, and cyber capabilities to customers throughout the public sector.

“Every day, cyber technology is rapidly evolving and new threats are exposing old vulnerabilities,” said CSRA President and CEO Larry Prior. “CSRA is a leader in cyber solutions and a trusted resource for training thousands of government employees. Cybersecurity is baked into everything CSRA does, but now we are better able to tell our great cyber story with the Cyber Center of Excellence. The Center ensures our expertise is shared widely within our company to maximize the benefit of our broad cyber experience for our customers.”

“From cyber defense, risk, operations and resilience to analytics, training, and consulting, CSRA is leading the industry in cyber,” said Dr. Matthew McFadden, Director of the CSRA Cyber Center of Excellence. “We are excited to announce this new initiative and provide robust solutions for our customers to secure, operate, and defend their enterprises. Innovation is paramount to defending against emerging cyber threats. Access to the latest cyber technologies can be the difference between preventing an attack and reading about it in the news.”

CSRA’s Cyber Center of Excellence, led by Dr. McFadden, brings next-generation technology and world-renowned cyber experts to provide access to the latest threat intelligence, trends, and resources to defend against persistent threats.

The Cyber Center of Excellence is a virtual center operating out of physical locations in Columbia, Md. and CSRA’s Integrated Technology Center (ITC) in Bossier City, La. The Center focuses on advancing cybersecurity capabilities and providing these innovations to CSRA’s customers.

As part of the launch event, CSRA introduced its key cyber partners through the Cyber Center of Excellence: Red Hat, Digital Guardian, Juniper Systems, Splunk, Palo Alto Networks, and Cisco.

The Cyber Center of Excellence also brings in the expertise of key alliance and emerging technology partners to rapidly prototype technologies. Those capabilities are then tested and evaluated through CSRA’s Cyber Range within the Cyber Institute based in Columbia, Md.

These partnerships, along with CSRA’s extensive alliance partner network, including Amazon Web Services, Cisco, Microsoft, Oracle, SalesForce, SAP and ServiceNow, allow CSRA to provide quick access to the latest cyber innovations and tailor them for use by government customers.
