Ship-stable flash drive for NAVSEA

DRS Technologies has selected Intellitactics Security Manager to serve as the focal point of a security information and event management system designed for the Naval Sea Systems Command (NAVSEA) to protect the Navy's Ship Self-Defense Systems, which automates onboard defense sensors and weapon systems across Navy ships.

Security Manager will be used to protect the Ship Self-Defense Systems MK-2 open architecture computing environment by monitoring mission-critical technology for security risks. Operating on a compact flash drive hardened for naval system deployment, the system will provide for unmanned, onboard monitoring. It also will help with the investigation and forensic analysis of security incidents, according to Suzanne Porter-Kuchay, a spokeswoman for Intellitactics.

NAVSEA, the largest of the Navy's five systems commands, accounts for nearly 0ne-fifth of the Navy's budget and manages 150 acquisition programs. NAVSEA's 53,000-member force of civilian, military and contract employees build, buy and maintain the Navy's ships, submarines and combat systems.
