DHS Licenses Cyber Tool to RhinoCorps Under Transition to Practice Program; Mike Pozmantier Comments

cyberThe Department of Homeland Security has licensed a Pacific Northwest National Laboratory-built cyber risk assessment platform for commercial use.

DHS’ science and technology directorate handed the Physical and Cyber Risk Analysis Tool to New Mexico-based vulnerability analysis tool developer RhinoCorps as part of the Transition to Practice program of the directorate’s cybersecurity division, DHS said Wednesday.

RhinoCorps plans to integrate PACRAT with Simajin, a tool designed to assess physical network vulnerabilities, in an effort to develop a platform that works to help users evaluate their physical and cybersecurity postures.

“Securing both the physical and cyber domains are essential to securing an organization’s infrastructure and currently all assessment tools on the market only observe one or the other domain,” said Mike Pozmantier, TPP program manager.

PACRAT is the fifth cyber tool that DHS has licensed under the TPP program, which has more than 20 other platforms that are scheduled to transition into the commercial market.
