GAITHERSBURG, Maryland. U.S. Department of Homeland Security (DHS) officials accredited Lockheed Martin as a Commercial Service Provider (CSP) under the department’s Enhanced Cybersecurity Services (ECS) program, which enables DHS to share sensitive and classified cybersecurity threat information with Lockheed Martin to support its efforts in guarding public and private entities against cyber attacks.

The Lockheed Martin ECS system will quarantine compromised e-mail and also block malicious DNS requests based on DHS supplied cyber threat intelligence.

“ECS data forms an important pillar of the data we use to inform our Intelligence Driven Defense methodology and operations,” says Rich Mahler, Lockheed Martin Commercial Markets director.

ECS information will be part of Lockheed Martin’s Enhanced Threat Protection solution, which then enhances Lockheed Martin’s proprietary data streams gathered over years of protecting critical data against advanced persistent threats.
