DoD uses AIMMS-based models to boost cybersecurity efforts

AIMMS, a vendor of prescriptive analytics software, recently announced that the U.S. Department of Defense (DoD) has chosen AIMMS’ innovative modeling environment to perform sophisticated cybersecurity analyses. The DoD’s Cyber and Business Systems Division (C3CB) will leverage AIMMS to solve large-scale optimization problems.
C3CB has already developed a prototype optimization model and seeks to use AIMMS as a long-term modeling and analytics solution. As described in the DoD’s documentation, there was an extensive analysis done to obtain “the right software to meet the needs at the lowest cost and time to the government.”

The DoD has chosen AIMMS due to the flexibility of the software, its advanced modeling features and its ability to handle a wide range of problem types. The models C3CB will develop are very complex and require a high-end, powerful and comprehensive technology. AIMMS, which is equipped with the CPLEX Solver, will enable them to speed up development times while supporting stochastic and robust optimization, as well as advanced simulations. Other benefits that drove their decision included the ability to read Microsoft Excel and Access files, easily manipulating data without the need to re-import it, and seamlessly creating user interfaces and visualizations to interpret analytics results.

Said AIMMS North America V.P. Chris Gordon: “Anticipating and effectively responding to cyber threats is of utmost importance for the public and private sector today. We are pleased to assist the U.S. Department of Defense in their efforts to improve cybersecurity.”
