SAIC debuts tiered cybersecurity solution

Because no single vendor can offer an end-to-end security solution, Science Applications International Corp. teamed with leading cybersecurity vendors to develop CyberSecurity Edge, an adaptive solution that the company said offers advanced data security and protects government customers from hackers, viruses and malware.

CyberSecurity Edge features a tiered approach that uses customers’ existing infrastructure to secure their data. SAIC begins with a non-intrusive assessment that finds vulnerabilities and documents risk. SAIC's scalable mitigation process then automates and optimizes security enhancements, ultimately remedying the vulnerabilities.

 Finally, ongoing cybersecurity management is offered to best suit the customer's requirements. This may be  in the form of security-as-a-service through a security operations center or on-premise security subject matter experts working within a customer's infrastructure.

"SAIC's expertise in providing intelligence, data security and cyber support to the U.S. government yielded CyberSecurity Edge," said sector president Doug Wagoner. "This solution provides maximum data security readiness and responds to advanced persistent cyber threats, multiple platforms and unstructured data. SAIC's approach takes the full data lifecycle into consideration to facilitate cyber resilience, mitigate risks and anticipate the next threat."

CyberSecurity Edge is repeatable, scalable and is aligned with best practices, such as the National Institute of Standards and Technology risk management framework, the company said.
