The Defense Information Systems Agency uses a cloud analytics platform to monitor security incident and anomalous behavior in networks across the Pentagon, Federal Times reported Wednesday.
Amber Corrin writes that Jack Wilmer, DISA deputy chief technology officer for enterprise services, said the Cybersecurity Situational Awareness Analytical Cloud system is designed to provide the agency visibility into the Pentagon’s data center sensors and Internet access points.
Wilmer told audience at the Federal Innovation Summit in Washington that the agency looks to improve cyber processes, agility and operational efficiency.
“Balancing and finding solutions that enable us to do all of those things is a really tricky problem, but one we’ve invested heavily in and one where we’re making a lot of headway,” he added, according to Corrin’s article.
Mark Orndorff, DISA chief information assurance executive, said the CSAAC platform works to help defense organizations share analytics tools.
He added the agency is exploring methods to enhance the CSAAC system’s data collection and sharing features, according to Federal Times.
