HBSS is a flexible, commercial-off-the-shelf (COTS)-based program that monitors, detects, and counters against known cyber-threats to the DoD Enterprise in accordance with the Enterprise-wide Information Assurance and Computer Network Defense Solutions Steering Group. DISA serves as the lead organization providing program oversight for DoD for the HBSS solution. "DISA and McAfee have built a HBSS partnership that has resulted in vastly improved protection and situational awareness across the large and complex DoD global IT enterprise." said Ken Kartsen, vice president, Federal Sales, Public Sector, McAfee. "With the HBSS security framework, DoD can quickly deploy new protection capabilities for its host inventory of servers, desktops and notebooks. The highly scalable and open framework behind HBSS, McAfee ePolicy Orchestrator platform, is especially necessary in today's environment of rapidly escalating cyber threats and declining DoD budgets. We are honored and humbled by the continued trust that DISA has placed in us and will continue to innovate and drive the capabilities of this highly important system."
Under the terms of the agreement, the Northrop Grumman/McAfee team will continue to enhance the operational capability of the HBSS solution through McAfee advanced enterprise host technologies, solution training of DoD personnel, and McAfee Global Professional Services. HBSS is currently supported by the ePolicy Orchestrator(R) platform and by McAfee(R) Host Intrusion Prevention Systems (HIPS). Cyber training for HBSS will continue to be a key initiative under the new HBSS agreement with DISA. Continued Kartsen, "HBSS is the most extensive cybersecurity training program ever undertaken in the history of DoD." For detailed information click here.
