Facing Down Cyberthreats

The Continuous Diagnostics and Mitigation (CDM) program makes tools and services— such as network sensors and dashboards—available to agencies via a government-wide contract. These tools and services help them identify cybersecurity risks on an ongoing basis, prioritize these risks based on potential threats, and mitigate them. The goal is to reduce breaches, improve visibility and move agencies away from a compliance focus and toward a continuous monitoring approach to security. See what government and industry experts had to say at the May 11th event CDM: Building Advanced Cyber Strategies.


The Rise of Hyperconvergence

Moving to a hyperconverged infrastructure addresses many of the issues facing federal government agencies these days. It can be more cost-effective, provide greater capacity, increased flexibility, rapid scalability, and promote innovation. This report — presented by Dell, Intel® and Tracewell — details several aspects of the move to hyperconvergence; from establishing a “future-ready” architecture capable of handling massive data stores and the durability requirements of field operations to software-based and virtualized infrastructure


The Big Picture View of Security

Cyber analytics focuses on improving intrusion detection and response. It’s most effective when considered as a single aspect of a larger cybersecurity game plan. To get the most out of cyber analytics, agencies should build their systems securely from the ground up. Take a holistic and layered approach, promote visibility, think strategically, be able to scale, promote security awareness and enforce basic security practices. Learn more about Cyberanalytics from this event overview based on the April 27th event Cyber Analytics, Compliance, and Business Agility.

Samsung on Android: The Secure, Defense-Grade Alternative

Samsung and Google have undertaken a number of initiatives to build security into the core Android operating system, provide robust application screening and provisioning, and deliver innovative hardware-based security platforms. Together, these enhancements have positively affected perceptions of Android security and underscore Android’s enterprise worthiness. Download this informative whitepaper to learn how Google’s ongoing commitment to providing monthly Android security patches, robust security services, and diligent application vetting with strict review processes, combined with Samsung’s device-based security features, position Android-based Samsung devices as the secure and logical choice for businesses and government agencies wishing to realize the potential of a digital enterprise.


ITES-3H: The New Face of Defense Contracts

The most recent iteration of the U.S. Army’s IT Enterprise Solutions contract—ITES-3H—is a notable step forward in the evolution of this contract. After the ITES-2H contract, originally award in 2014, was extended several times and had more than $1 billion added to its ceiling, it was time for a new format. Under ITES-3H, the contract is open to other defense agencies, although the Army is expected to account for the majority of the awards. This special report will present a series of articles explaining the evolution of ITES, the broad reaching impact of the new contract, its impact of cybersecurity, and what’s next for this contract format.


A Better Storage Alternative For Federal Agencies

Under the Federal Data Center Consolidation Initiative and the Cloud First initiative, agencies are being asked to evaluate cloud storage among their modernization options. While some cloud storage services have a reputation for being an economical option, many agencies are understandably reluctant to transfer control and management of their IT infrastructure to a cloud storage provider because of concerns over security, access, and meeting critical SLAs. But there is another option. High-density flash storage offers agencies an unbeatable combination of high performance and cost competitiveness. This white paper compares the cost, control, security, and performance between the two options.
