SAIC Introduces CyberSecurity Edge™

Company's data life-cycle cybersecurity solution ensures customers' systems and information are protected from cyber risks across multiple platforms

MCLEAN, Va., Aug. 26, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Cyberattacks disrupt activities and steal information every day. Science Applications International Corp. (NYSE: SAIC) today launched CyberSecurity Edge™, an adaptive cybersecurity solution that offers advanced data security and mitigates vulnerabilities to ensure customers are protected from hackers, viruses, and malware. 

The next generation of SAIC.

CyberSecurity Edge is SAIC's holistic, agile, and adaptive approach to securing modern data. Its architecture is designed to help thwart operational disruption, intellectual property loss and fraud, and loss of public trust that often results from cyberattacks.

"Helping our clients anticipate and respond in this hyper-connected world is one of our top priorities. SAIC's expertise in providing intelligence, data security, and cyber support to the U.S. government yielded CyberSecurity Edge," said Sector President Doug Wagoner. "This solution provides maximum data security readiness and responds to advanced persistent cyber threats, multiple platforms, and unstructured data. SAIC's approach takes the full data lifecycle into consideration to facilitate cyber resilience, mitigate risks, and anticipate the next threat."

The SAIC Advantage

No single software vendor or services company can meet a customer's complete cybersecurity needs, regardless of how many experts they employ. With this in mind, SAIC has teamed with leading cybersecurity vendors to develop CyberSecurity Edge. SAIC's solution offers customers a tiered approach that leverages their existing infrastructure to secure their data. SAIC begins with a non-intrusive assessment that finds vulnerabilities and documents risk.

Once complete, SAIC's scalable mitigation process, which includes integration of best-of-breed solutions, automates and optimizes security enhancements, ultimately remedying these vulnerabilities. Finally, ongoing cybersecurity management is offered to best suit the customer's requirements. This may be in the form of security-as-a-service through a security operations center, or on-premise security subject matter experts to work within a customer's infrastructure.

Along with our strategic partners, SAIC's force of more than 350 cybersecurity professionals is ready to protect our customers' interests today and for the future.

"SAIC's approach is efficient, easily adopted, and cost-effective. This is the next-generation cybersecurity solution that helps secure data in modern digital environments – online, cloud, and mobile," said SAIC Vice President of Cyber, Cloud, and Data Science Charles Onstott. "If it has an IP address, we can leverage the best-in-class technologies to enable the secure environment that our customers rely on."    

CyberSecurity Edge is repeatable, scalable, and tailored to meet customer compliance requirements and is aligned with best practices, such as the National Institute of Standards and Technology risk management framework. The experienced SAIC team has broad capabilities in advanced data security, vulnerabilities assessment, and risk mitigation, including:

  • Trained vulnerability discovery teams that include GCIH (Global Information Assurance Certification Certified Incident Handler) "white hat" ethical hackers
  • Assessment teams certified in Tenable Network Security's Assured Compliance Assessment Solution for the Defense Information Systems Agency
  • Operation of multiple security operations centers, network operations centers, and help desks
  • Ability to monitor on-premise, off-premise, and in hybrid environments
