DOJ looks to replace Web security package

The Justice Department is looking for a Web security package to serve its 100,000 users.

DOJ’s Justice Management Division released a request for information July 10. It wants to replace its current enterprise system with “security-hardened, appliance-based products.”

DOJ officials said the department is trying to obtain information from industry on the latest technologies to determine possible courses of action. Currently, Justice uses a suite of commercial software packages that provide Web page caching, Web content filters and antivirus scanning.

The RFI states that Justice is looking for solutions that require “minimum customization, and rely on the manufacturer’s ability to provide secure and reliable updates.”

Justice is requesting software that would let officials use current components at a central management facility in Rockville, Md.

Requirements for the system include:

    * 99.5 percent uptime.
    * Web content filtering failover for 50 percent of the user base at a secondary disaster recovery site.
    * Filtering adult content and spyware, and blocking malicious Web sites.
    * An antivirus engine with virus signature updates every five to 10 minutes.
    * Logging system activity.
    * Management via the Web.

Responses to the RFI are due by July 26.
