PROTEUS is pleased to announce its most recent business win to provide support for a US DoD innovative mission capabilities program. Specifically, PROTEUS will provide technical expertise in support of research and rapid development for an innovative prototype, with an emphasis on efficiently adapting and repurposing existing technologies.
Leveraging the capabilities and innovations developed through PROTEUS' corporate Flexible Innovation Tank (FIT), a highly available cloud-based, virtual infrastructure which supports rapid development of research and prototype applications, the contact enables the engineering company to showcase recent technical innovations in solving tough client challenges.
In establishing its Flexible Innovation Tank (FIT), an ideal environment to introduce new technologies for rapid prototypes, proof of concepts, application development, performance tuning and training purposes, PROTEUS not only provides its engineers with on demand provisioning of servers and services via a self-service portal, but often unveils and crowns a tool or service as the gold standard in computing assets. With CloudStack as their private cloud, PROTEUS engineers embraced its simple, yet robust capabilities and portability. PROTEUS' VP of Technology, Eric Schlesinger, recently spoke with Datamation about the company's use of CloudStack as an enterprise cloud solution. You can read the interview here.

The initiative includes proof of concept demonstrations and prototypes for performing vulnerability assessments, malware analysis, and intrusion prevention for today's wireless platforms.
Eric Schlesinger, Vice President of Technology, states,"with widespead proliferation of wireless devices and the vulnerabilities that can threaten mobile computing, including unsecured Wi-Fi access, lost or stolen devices, and malware attacks on mobile operating systems; we believe that mobile computing tops the list of this year's leading security concerns."
The wireless and mobile exploitation initiative will provide a proving ground for offensive and defensive capabilities. Solutions developed will enhance the company's cyber engineering capabilities. Current work is focused on Android operating system vulnerabilities, privilege escalation and capability leaks. PROTEUS' ground breaking internal research prototypes and applications are often successfully integrated into solutions to support the company's intelligence and federal executive community clients' national defense requirements.
The Baltimore Business Journal, in its "Book of Lists", ranked PROTEUS at #6 amongst the Top IT consulting firms in the Baltimore area, moving up from #9 in 2011. PROTEUS has ranked within the top ten for this and several other categories, including top woman owned companies, for the past six years.
