Collaboration is essential for today’s Army as remote work is the norm. We offer 24/7 secure connectivity, from the home front to the battlefield, on any device, leveraging collaboration tools of choice.
Cyber Security/Secure Access
Iron Bow’s comprehensive and resilient approach to cyber security focuses on data protection, access and availability. We deploy technologies that do more than keep threats out. We provide information to understand, remediate and prevent future attacks. Iron Bow has the expertise to assess customer data needs, networks and IT systems. We enable the right technology and successfully deploy solutions to address security challenges, maintain access and protect against today’s advanced threats and attacks.
- Secure Access/Classified Remote Access Solution
- Zero Trust Architecture (ZTA)
- Commercial Solutions for Classified (CSfC)
Our multi-cloud solutions deliver a quick and secure route to multiple DoD and/or public cloud infrastructures, while also providing a single point of management for the various platforms, enabling the Army to leverage the cloud to “maintain information superiority and to deliver digital overmatch.”
A cornerstone of our Iron Bow multi-cloud offerings, IronTarget™ powers a hybrid approach to moving legacy technology to the cloud. With IronTarget, the Army can meet cloud mandates by easing into public cloud use, virtualize legacy apps to work in cloud environments, improve availability with options for COOP and Disaster Recovery and achieve cost/performance optimization
Modern Service Models
Iron Bow stands ready to deliver the day-to-day management of IT systems that organizations rely on to meet operational and business mission objectives.
5G to NextG
Iron Bow understands the power of 5G and how to integrate it into DoD solutions. We provide rapid experimentation and dual-use application prototyping, secure mobile device management solutions and infrastructure automation for warfighter operational solutions.
Our team developed a single system that would allow full-time soldiers, National Guard and First Responders to access needed systems and data when and wherever needed. The Iron Bow wireless solution allowed for BYOD and .mil access in a secure and seamless process.
Logistics and Warehousing
The speed of modern warfare requires a supply chain that can not only keep up with the pace, but do so securely. Iron Bow’s approach to Supply Chain Risk Management (SCRM) ensures that equipment gets where it needed, when it is needed, with traceability at every step in the process.
- Inventory Management
Iron Bow holds a number of significant contract vehicles for DoD to make it easy to get up and running with our support and services.

Iron Bow in Action
Enabling the M-Day Soldier
To achieve readiness, National Guard Modern Day soldiers need a secure solution for both government-furnished equipment (GFE) and bring your own (approved) device to access computer-based training. During emergencies and training exercises, contractors and emergency personnel alike, require quick and secure temporary guest access to resources that are segregated from government resources. Iron Bow’s team of wireless experts are able to provide and support a wireless network infrastructure that enables both training and mission requirements. The Iron Bow wireless solution, utilizing next generation technology, maintains the integrity of data and provides a secure and reliable transport for different communities of interest.
Global Enterprise Fabric
Iron Bow has been at the forefront in the development and deployment of the Global Enterprise Fabric (GEF), a Network Enterprise Technology Command (NETCOM) program that aims to streamline the deployment of applications across the organization with a private cloud solution. GEF was created in response to pressures including data center consolidation, growing user demands for modern applications and the growing toolset needed to develop and deploy those applications. The GEF is a private cloud where you pay for what you use as you use it. As an Army-built and offered service there is no procurement needed. Utilizing Infrastructure as a Service, Network Services and Computer Network Defense, organizations can get the resources needed for faster application deployment to the field.
Enabling Face-to-Face Secure Collaboration to Warfighters in the Field
A DoD client required personnel located across multiple sites to be able to communicate real-time, face-to-face in a classified environment. Previous communication had been via phone and email, both of which proved unsatisfactory for fully supporting their warfighting mission. The client desired to implement a full video conferencing solution to provide real-time, face-to-face, seamless collaboration. Iron Bow provided design and implementation services for a unified approach to their communication architecture. This engagement encompassed survey, design, engineering, product acquisition, warehousing, product delivery to remote locations, on-site installation, adoption, training, testing and warranty support. The team planned and designed the unified communications and interoperability architecture with input from government technical personnel. The resulting system provides the face-to-face interaction the client was looking for and enables secure, real-time collaboration among remote teams much more effectively.
As agencies are mandated to plan for “Cloud-Smart,” a public cloud may not always be the best option. Similarly, building a proprietary private cloud may not the most cost effective, long-term solution. Iron Bow had a DoD client with a requirement to reduce their storage maintenance fees, however they were not ready to move all of their storage to the public cloud. IronTarget™ enabled the agency to easily modernize their storage architecture while future-proofing their investment for future public cloud migrations.
Meeting Modernization Goals Securely
One of the many applications of CSfC is the replacement of the aging and difficult to maintain TACLANES to provide a modern approach to securing and enabling encrypted traffic. With CSfC, devices are more easily managed and maintained for quicker implementation. Additionally, CSfC leveraging wireless capabilities allows the move to SIPRNet for field operations to become a reality.
A Template for VDI use Across DoD
As part of the design and development of an active-active data center for a DoD client, Iron Bow conducted pre-installation assessments to ensure this high availability system would perform as expected. The VDI for over 2,000 users was designed to be hot-hot, rather than the standard hot-cold design in which half of the assets remain offline. It was critical to the client that they never experience any loss of production in the event of a single site failure. The solution delivered all requirements, received Department-wide recognition and serves as a showcase for groups across the Department looking to move to VDI.
Using Sensor Data to Build a Better Simulation
In today’s digitized world, training simulations are more accessible, accepted and realistic than ever. These simulations are critical to ensuring mission readiness while saving time and money. Data from field-deployed sensors can help build a contextual awareness for simulated training. Through real-world data, simulations can be more effectively programmed, removing the need to put expensive equipment at risk for training exercises.
Maintaining Patient Focus
Iron Bow Technologies manages over 50,000 assets for a federal healthcare provider. The IronCare service provides a single number for IT support versus multiple numbers depending on the technology. Our staff, skilled in the technology and knowledgeable about the environment, quickly assess the situation, reduce the troubleshooting time and provide the client a timely resolution. This support allows the client to get the most out of their investment, realizing productivity and desired outcomes without adding to the workload of IT or adding complexity to technology systems and processes.
30+ years supporting the DoD combined with partnerships with top-tier manufacturer as well as emerging innovators ensures we have access to technology solutions that can begin making a difference today.
Regardless of how you consume technology, we can help you innovate. Our solutions are the right mix of people, process and technology that meet your unique needs.
