CAMBRIDGE, Mass. Data-analytics and software company Devo Technology has won a contract from the U.S. Air Force for the Enterprise Cyberspace Security & Defense (CS&D) Global Security Information Event Management (SIEM) System; the contract for Devo software and related services is worth $9.5 million.
The Air Force is deploying Devo Security Operations -- a cloud-native security operations package -- to merge critical security capabilities with auto enrichment, threat-intelligence community collaboration, a central evidence locker, and a more efficient workflow. Devo is tasked with acting as the central security hub for protection, detection, and response across the U.S. Air Force's worldwide operations for enterprise defense.
“To combat the ever-increasing number and sophistication of threat actors and nation-state hackers, the Air Force sought a true next-generation SIEM solution that would empower it to respond to threats within 18 minutes, 49 seconds, across a complex operating environment that scales to collect and analyze more than a petabyte of data a day, all in real time,” said Julian Waits, general manager, cybersecurity, for Devo. “Devo’s ability to scale, automate cyber operator workflow, and enrich data, combined with its advanced visualization capabilities, will enable the Air Force to meet this target and respond to threats rapidly and decisively. Initial implementation showed Devo Security Operations is expected to reduce in excess of 20,000 human hours of time currently spent by Air Force cyber operators on threat isolation, triage, and investigation processes, freeing analysts to focus on critical threat-hunting and resolution efforts.”
