Main Nerve Federal Services
MainNerve Federal Services Inc. (MFSI) is a privately held Service Disabled Veteran Owned Small Business, focused on providing GWOT and warfighter support services to the military and the interagency community in both combat and/or support areas of operations.
MFSI also provides unique, proprietary IT/cyber-security products and services to the federal government, at network enterprise level and at the network edge, through an exclusive, perpetual IP/technology license and operating agreement with our affiliate company, MainNerve, Inc, with offices in San Antonio, TX, Nashville, TN and Phoenix, AZ. We deliver value, innovation, efficiency and economy to our partners and clients by providing deeply experienced, security cleared talent, guaranteeing unparalleled excellence. We strive to perform meaningful, high value work -- helping to secure and protect our country from threats. Whenever possible, we employ returning combat veterans and wounded warriors reentering the workplace.
Current security technology focuses on protecting against ingress and intrusion threats and therefore fails to detect or intercept any outgoing traffic generated from insider threats and destined for external adversarial command and control centers, who by nature, are overt or potential threats to United States national security interests. This represents a major source of product differentiation for MainNerve Federal Services. There is little or no competition to our products, because the method of filtering outgoing communications to command and control centers on the Internet is the basis of a patent-pending innovation, giving MFSI a sustainable, long-term advantage. What sets MainNerve Federal Services apart from the major industry competitors is its combination of intelligence and product. At a more competitive price, our Security Services offer our clients real time global intelligence of multiple threats, as well as the product that stops the compromise of important, highly sensitive, critical data and information before it egresses the network, with no human intervention. MainNerve Federal Services Inc. deploys a world-class Managed Security Services platform, anchored by a patent-pending innovation, the Adaptive Darknet, capable of uniquely protecting the IT security needs/assets of the federal government, in addition to a large existing group of discriminating global, commercial clients of our MainNerve, Inc affiliate.
Adaptive DarkNet (U.S. Patent and Trademark Office SN 60/683,439)
The Adaptive DarkNet Security Service is a standalone product for enterprises who manage their own information security. The Adaptive DarkNet appliance and service is a real-time malware defense system that gathers global intelligence regarding adversarial cyber threats location, “identity” and the systems they are controlling. Using that intelligence, the Adaptive DarkNet disallows communications with those entities and the systems under their control. This is the world’s first information security tool that ignores firewall rules, anti-virus, anti-spyware signatures, and policy based decision making to allow the enterprise security team to cut off communications from cyber threats and disrupt/block their use of Trojans, worms, keystroke loggers, and viruses that can, together, be cobbled into devastating botnets. MainNerve Federal Services sells directly to government agencies or through its selected strategic distribution partners and is considering offering its services via GSA schedule 70. Key Benefits:
