SAIC selects Secure Elements to bolster security incident response.
CLASS 5 AVR is a complete vulnerability management solution that enables IT security departments to proactively stop attacks before they start. CLASS 5 AVR standard modules include policy enforcement, patch management, configuration management and asset management and control.
SAIC's CATIE program automatically establishes whether or not computers have been attacked, and whether or not an attack was successful. Additionally, CATIE suggests additional situation-specific evidence that the system owner may collect and submit to improve the analysis.
The combined SAIC/Secure Elements product enables an organization's incident response team to quickly, efficiently and accurately focus resources to mitigate risk and damage where efforts will be most effective. Once integration is complete, the offering will be commercially available through SAIC.
"Secure Elements has built a powerful tool on top of a very well- architected platform," said Jim Jones, chief scientist at SAIC's Enterprise Security Solutions Business Unit. "We looked at multiple applications to find a product that could give CATIE the asset data needed to begin our process, and the CLASS 5 AVR sensor was able to quickly and efficiently provide us the depth and breadth of data we required."
"We're excited to collaborate on this effort with SAIC, one of the world's largest security service providers in the commercial and government markets," said Ned Miller, president and CEO of Secure Elements. "The combined analysis and forensics capabilities of CLASS 5 AVR and CATIE provide an in-depth forensics tool available to all levels of the enterprise. When CATIE and CLASS 5 AVR recommend actions, it will be based on deep asset knowledge taken directly from the source, not just a passive scan."
