Safeguarding U.S. Space Critical Infrastructure from Cyberattacks the Goal of ManTech's Space Range

ManTech (Nasdaq: MANT) has launched Space Range, a cybersecurity solution that leverages deep research on offensive cyber to help protect U.S. military, intelligence community and commercial space assets from virulent cyberattacks.

A video viewable at this direct link shows the new solution in action via a live cyberattack on a replicated satellite command and control (C2) system created safely within the ManTech Space Range. The replicated satellite hack showcases Space Range’s ability to find hidden vulnerabilities, misconfigurations and software bugs on precise network replications, empowering customers with the knowledge to prevent and defeat real-world attacks.

As Space Range evolves beyond this first phase, ManTech will expand solution capabilities to protect space systems from the full spectrum of potential cyberattacks.

Rick Wagner, President of ManTech’s Mission Cyber & Intelligence Solutions (MCIS) Group, said space is a war zone. In a world where hostile nation states work around-the-clock to compromise networks and infrastructure, Space Range fills the vital role of protecting space assets from the ground up – including complex ground stations and network transport facilities.
