How does one harden an operating system to the point where NIST says no breaches have occurred? 

Even though 85 percent of our revenue is in IT services, in many ways, the core of the company, the DNA of the company, is in engineering. Our goal is not just faster, cheaper. We are really focused on designing better solutions. And those solutions have an internal integrity to them because we have this engineering focus that tends to be extraordinarily stable and difficult to mess with. That's why it's so difficult to hack. Our Stealth solution around microsegmentation—we hold hackathons around the world. Nobody in our hackathons have ever been able to get into Stealth. It's a very powerful part of what the company does.

But when you say nobody's been able to hack into it, isn't that an invite for somebody to try it? 

Be my guest. In this world, you don't need to invite people to hack your systems. They do it on their own. But that is the approach we take to dealing with our clients. The confidentiality of data is just a critical part of running companies, of running government agencies. It is very much top of mind.
