Intermap Technologies, Inc. | February 13, 2023
Intermap Technologies (Intermap), a leading 3D geospatial products and intelligence solutions provider, recently announced that it has been chosen by the United States Department of Defense to advance to the next stage of a competitive process to showcase advanced technology for Geospatial Temporal Incident Data. Intermap was invited to showcase its newest artificial intelligence processing technology and illustrate how it can help the U.S. government with actionable, geo-precise data for planning processes and situational awareness after its prior proposal was vetted and assessed.
Human-caused events (population disturbances, crime, riots and protests, and cybersecurity advancements) and natural hazard occurrences are included in Geospatial Temporal Incident Data. At the Thunderstorm 23-1 event in April 2023, Intermap will exhibit its capabilities and demonstrate its advanced technology to the Department of Defense.
Intermap's digital tool combines machine learning, artificial intelligence algorithms, natural language processing, proprietary, multi-sensor-derived terrain, global-scale, object, and feature catalogs, and open-source global data to track, identify, display, and notify interested parties of current international events, threats, and natural disasters.
Its technology using ML/AI/NLP processing, analyses and precisely geolocates the danger level, categorizes each occurrence, calculates its footprint, and marks it on a map to enable actionable visualization for possible threats in a given region of interest. The generated information improves situational awareness and aids planning procedures by fusing, analyzing, and visualizing events and trends to present the U.S. Army with an enhanced common operation picture (COP).

Skyhigh Security | February 27, 2023
Skyhigh Security, a cloud-native security solutions provider, recently announced its Skyhigh Security Edge (SSE) portfolio completed the Australian Information Security Registered Assessors Program (IRAP) assessment to the PROTECTED security classification level. Skyhigh Security's momentum in the federal government is continued with new assessments following its previous completed assessment in 2020, where Skyhigh Cloud Access Security Broker (CASB) has been evaluated as PROTECTED. The IRAP assessment assures public sector organizations that Skyhigh Security's robust suite of data-aware cloud security technology is equipped with adequate security controls to manage highly sensitive data and the infrastructures of Australian government agencies.
The Australian Signals Directorate (ASD) led initiative IRAP provides high-quality information and communications technology (ICT) security assessment services to the Australian federal government. The IRAP assessment procedure is documented in the Australian Government Information Security Manual (ISM), which offers cybersecurity guidance and standards to protect vital information and systems of Australian government organizations. In addition, Skyhigh SSE has the appropriate controls in place to meet the security objectives defined by the Australian Cybersecurity Centre's (ACSC) Cloud Security Assessment and Authorisation Framework.
Skyhigh Security benefited from IRAP in the Australian marketplace by demonstrating the company's commitment to security and a readiness to undergo independent assessments of its data-aware SSE technology. This assessment lets government agencies develop digital transformation initiatives and deliver improved citizen outcomes with confidence, utilizing powerful cloud capabilities delivered from Australian data centers. The Skyhigh SSE portfolio has also been evaluated by the Federal Risk and Authorization Management Program (FedRAMP). This U.S. government program evaluates cloud security vendors using a standardized security framework for cloud products and services.
