DHS could provide 'security in a box'

Agencies could get a computer "security-in-a-box" package courtesy of the Homeland Security Department in 2013, reports NextGov.

"The free, three-piece package will include near real-time threat sensors, a control panel for prioritizing fixes and consulting services to make all the pieces work together," writes reporter Aliya Sternstein.

DHS proposes to spend $202 million to fund the program.
