NMCI set to get network intrusion system

The Navy will deploy the ManHunt network intrusion detection system from Symantec Corp. for the Navy-Marine Corps Intranet.

NMCI subcontractor Raytheon Co. will use the Cupertino, Calif., company for intrusion detection, antivirus services, firewall protection and enterprise security management. Raytheon is handling information assurance requirements for NMCI contractor EDS Corp.

ManHunt gathers intelligence using distributed sensors and a process known as protocol anomaly detection to identify attacks.

'Given NMCI's critical mission and global presence, identifying new attack activity quickly at high network speeds is a chief security requirement,' said Tim Bashara, Raytheon's director of secure information systems.

NMCI will link roughly 411,000 sailors and Marines at 300 shore sites via a common voice, video and data intranet.
