Pentagon Gives Firm Called ISIS a $7 Million Contract

“The Defense Department has hired a little-known Virginia startup company – with an unfortunate name – to pull together the military’s most cutting-edge computer and information assets,” Defense One reports.  

“The “Threat Intelligence Platform” project will help Pentagon analysts sift through big data research to track threats – including presumably Islamic State extremists. So, the winning contractor, Isis Defense, might want to think about rebranding itself – or go with the free advertising.”  

“Right now, the company doesn’t have a major Web presence. There is no corporate website. Google searches for “Isis Defense” pull up a bunch of news stories about international efforts to stanch the Islamic State’s spread.”
