Air Force awards extrusion protection contract

The Air Force Information Operations Battlelab has selected the Fidelis Extrusion Prevention System from Fidelis Security Systems of Bethesda, Md., as a project for operational security.

The battlelab conducted a demonstration at Offutt Air Force Base in Nebraska to determine the military utility of the Fidelis system to monitor and protect Privacy Act information, Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act data, enforce acceptable use policies and maintain operational security information. The Fidelis system is designed to perform real-time monitoring of computer network traffic and prevent the unauthorized transfer of designated sensitive or valuable information.

The system was reviewed for operational value, technological risk, breadth of application, time for completion and whether it matches current Air Force needs and requirements. Based on the results of the demonstration, AFIOB is working to extend Fidelis' capabilities to Air Force Information Operations.
