Lineaje Awarded Coveted Contract by the Department of the U.S. Air Force

Lineaje Awarded Coveted Contract by the Department of the U.S. Air Force

Lineaje’s SBOM360 will create and provide innovative capabilities within the software supply chain to strengthen the U.S. national defense

Lineaje, a leader in continuous software supply chain security management, today announced that Lineaje SBOM360 has been selected by the Department of the U.S. Air Force’s (DAF) for a Small Business Technology Transfer (STTR) Phase 1 contract. As the industry’s first software supply chain and software bill of materials (SBOM) manager, SBOM360 will automate the detection and remediation of today’s most pressing software supply chain challenges within the U.S Air Force.

In the past year alone, more than 75% of software supply chains were exposed to cyberattacks —and 40% of organizations took a month or longer to recover. Due to the sensitivity of the data in applications built and bought by the U.S. Air Force and other federal entities, these organizations are often a top target for today’s adversaries.

SBOM360 supports the full life-cycle management of software that is sourced, built, sold, or bought by the U.S. Air Force. With our solution, the U.S. Air Force can ensure all software supply chain risks and threats are identified and remediated and meet organizations’ security policies and compliance mandates, such as Executive Order 14028, automatically. In addition, the U.S. Air Force will be able to search its software in seconds to find any newly discovered vulnerabilities and indicators of compromise (IOCs) within the most deeply embedded components, dramatically reducing discovery time. Lineaje generates a full lineage of software and discovers inherent and tampers risks by scanning source code, containers, mobile APKs, POM files, and even SBOMs. Lineaje can also generate SBOMs as well if you don’t already have one.

“Being selected for the STTR Phase 1 contract program is a testament to Lineaje’s commitment to revolutionizing the software supply chain security space,” said Javed Hasan, CEO and Co-founder, Lineaje. “SBOM360’s innovative and comprehensive approach will empower the U.S. Space Force and Department of the Air Force to fortify their defenses against cyberthreats. We are extremely proud to play a pivotal role in safeguarding the nation’s critical software infrastructure.”

The STTR Contract Program

The DAF began offering the competitive, awards-based Open Topic Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR)/STTR program in 2018 to expand the range of innovations the DAF funded. The programs are designed to encourage domestic small businesses to engage in federal research and development.

Recently, the Air Force Research Laboratory and SpaceWERX, the innovation arm of the U.S. Space Force, partnered to streamline the SBIR and STTR process by accelerating the small business experience through a faster proposal to award timelines, changing the pool of potential applicants by expanding opportunities to small businesses, and eliminating bureaucratic overhead by continually implementing process improvement changes in contract execution. By completing Phase I of the program, Lineaje has established the scientific, technical, and commercial merit and feasibility of SBOM360’s innovation.
