Critical Cybersecurity Assessment Paves Way for Company to Deliver Secure
Cloud Services to the United States Government

SAN DIEGO, April 16, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Kratos Defense & Security
Solutions, Inc. (Nasdaq:KTOS), a leading National Security Solutions provider,
announced today that its dedicated business group of cybersecurity experts,
Kratos SecureInfo, worked as the independent assessor to assist a large-scale
Cloud Service Provider (CSP) in securing its FedRAMP Authority to Operate
(ATO). By serving as the Third Party Assessment Organization (3PAO), Kratos
SecureInfo successfully helped this large CSP substantiate that it met
FedRAMP's cybersecurity and information assurance requirements, a necessary
prerequisite to deliver secure cloud services to federal government agencies.
More information about Authorized CSPs and the 3PAO relationship is available
at: www.gsa.gov/portal/content/131931.

The Federal Risk Authorization and Management Program (FedRAMP) supports the
U.S. Government's objective to enable the secure and cost effective use of
solutions provided by commercial CSPs. As an accredited 3PAO, Kratos
SecureInfo independently validated the FedRAMP mandated security controls
implemented by the large-scale CSP.

After a rigorous review of 3PAO providers, Kratos SecureInfo was chosen by the
cloud provider based upon its extensive experience securing cloud environments
for commercial and government organizations. Kratos SecureInfo has
successfully assessed hundreds of government systems and works with industry
leading commercial CSPs, including Amazon Web Services, Microsoft, Dell and
many more.

"We are proud to have helped this leading, global cloud service provider move
through the FedRAMP process efficiently and successfully," said Christopher
Fountain, Sr. Vice President of the Kratos SecureInfo business group. "It
further demonstrates Kratos' leadership in applying federal information
security frameworks to large-scale cloud computing solutions."
