Article Excerpt: "Potential Movement in Federal Cybersecurity Toward Commercial Firms"

Author: Edward P. Moser, Alexandria, VA

The cybersecurity market for the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) and Department of Defense (DoD) has traditionally been dominated by the large, established defense contractors. Indeed, after 9-11 firms such as Northrop Grumman and Lockheed Martin accelerated their efforts in this field. Raytheon, for example, established a homeland security division in 2002. "You still see a pretty significant reliance on system integrators," said Shannon Kellogg, Director of Government and Industry Affairs for Bedford, MA-based RSA Security (NASDAQ: RSAS). "And many of the defense contractors are updating their technology lab processes to also get to emerging technologies earlier."

However, a trend may be emerging toward greater use by DHS, DoD and other IT security-conscious agencies of the more commercially IT outfits such as Adobe Systems, Inc. and nCipher. "We are starting to see a stronger push in certain agencies -- particularly in the DoD, intelligence and DHS communities -- to have direct contact with innovators," said Kellogg, "to get access to emerging technologies earlier in the procurement process."

When growing capacity and power in the data center, the architectural trade-offs between server scale-up vs. scale-out continue to be debated. Both approaches are valid: scale-out adds multiple, smaller servers running in a distributed computing model, while scale-up adds fewer, more powerful servers that are capable of running larger workloads. It’s worth noting that there are additional, unique advantages that scale-up architectures offer. One big advantage is large memory and compute capacity...
Both SaaS vendors and SaaS buyers are going “all-in” to hyperscale IaaS platforms such as AWS, which is disrupting the SaaS value proposition. Why should the enterprise SaaS consumer pay for the SaaS service if their data is resident in adjacent AWS S3 buckets? If both SaaS sellers and buyers are using the same cloud tools, automation and pay-per-transaction model offered by IaaS platforms, then why not host the “shrink-wrapped” software in the customers’ cloud? Further, serverless computing, cl...
You know you need the cloud, but you’re hesitant to simply dump everything at Amazon since you know that not all workloads are suitable for cloud. You know that you want the kind of ease of use and scalability that you get with public cloud, but your applications are architected in a way that makes the public cloud a non-starter. You’re looking at private cloud solutions based on hyperconverged infrastructure, but you’re concerned with the limits inherent in those technologies.

In his session at 20th Cloud Expo, Don Browning, VP of Cloud Architecture at Turner, posited that disruption is inevitable for comp...

IoT solutions exploit operational data generated by Internet-connected smart “things” for the purpose of gaining operational insight and producing “better outcomes” (for example, create new business models, eliminate unscheduled maintenance, etc.). The explosive proliferation of IoT solutions will result in an exponential growth in the volume of IoT data, precipitating significant Information Governance issues: who owns the IoT data, what are the rights/duties of IoT solutions adopters towards t...
With the introduction of IoT and Smart Living in every aspect of our lives, one question has become relevant: What are the security implications?
