ISHPI was born a cyber-services company supporting U.S. Armed Forces personnel and other direct defenders of the homeland with a heavy focus on emerging asymmetric Information Operations. Over the years, our focus on cyber related services has held steady while our client base and functional capabilities expanded exponentially to envelop essentially all cyber impacted components of modern warfare. Philosophically, our approach to cyber surety has evolved to become holistic in nature, based on a firm conviction that cyber activities are never truly secure unless every layer of the OSI model and every human input associated with the activity (directly or indirectly) is holistically engineered and integrated for cyber security. In the last 5 years, we have expanded our services to address virtually every aspect of our philosophical approach, providing support services in: Counterterrorism, Red Teaming & Wargaming, Information Assurance, Cybersecurity, Cyberwarfare, Intelligence & Counterintelligence Support Services, Systems Life-Cycle Design Engineering, Logistics Engineering, Network Engineering, Acquisition Support, System Engineering & Integration, TEMPEST/COMSEC, and Electronic Warfare (ISR).
In 2014, ISHPI acquired Advanced Information Services, Inc. (AIS), a globally recognized leader in software development quality and the winner of the 2013 Government Information Security Leadership Award (GISLA) for secure software life-cycle practices and the IEEE Computer Society Software Process Achievement Award. The acquisition added cyber-secure software development using a proprietary CMMI Maturity Level 5 Agile High Velocity Development℠ process to ISHPI’s holistic CyberStance Strategy. The addition of this extremely talented, accomplished, award winning team of cyber-secure software pioneers added a capstone element to ISHPI’s holistic CyberStance™ Strategy. AIS now serves clients as the Advanced Information Services (AIS) division of ISHPI, providing CyberSmithed™, ActiveDefense™ software that continues to define and enable new mission-ready capabilities for our customers, our nation and the defenders of our homeland.
