The Defense Information Systems Agency plans to integrate tools into the Defense Department‘s Host Based Security System cyber threat detection platform to support the transition to a new cybersecurity network defense approach.
DISA said Tuesday HBSS will evolve into Endpoint Security Solutions through a multi-year effort that will include product life-cycle updates and the addition of endpoint protection components such application whitelisting, visibility and containment tools.
ESS will also utilize the security features of the Windows 10 secure host baseline, the agency added.
The new approach to network defense will undergo constant review through the Unclassified-but-Sensitive Internet Protocol Router Network/Secret Internet Protocol Router Network Cyber Security Architecture Review process, DISA said.
The agency collaborates with the National Security Agency, the DoD Cyber Range and “red” teams to support DoD’s department-wide endpoint security effort.
