DISA said Wednesday that those five challenges are performance reliability, latency, multi-tenancy, synchronization with base infrastructure and cost.

Joe Edwards, JRSS chief engineer, said the agency updated all CONUS Intrusion Prevention System appliances, implemented governance processes and standard operating procedures to address latency and multi-tenancy issues.

“We continually stress that going forward, vendors must demonstrate an ability to safeguard processing resources to avoid inadvertent impacts among mission partner traffic,” said Edwards.

He offered updates on the JRSS Security Information and Event Manager and mentioned the improvements the program management office made to Tier 3 operations and engineering support. JRSS are regional suites of systems designed to help Department of Defense cyber professionals to continuously track, analyze and protect the DOD Information Network from cyber threats.
