Salient’s Assure6 cybersecurity policy manager is built to detect and block malicious IPv6 attacks. It will assist the Air Force Networks in defense from costly cyber attacks generated by the requirements of legacy networks and devices to support the future IPv6 standard.
“We look forward to partnering with the Air Force to meet the U.S. Government’s goal of securely implementing Internet Protocol version 6 by 2014,” said Salient’s cybersecurity leader Lisa Donnan. “Our Assure6 intrusion prevention system will help mitigate the vulnerabilities of implementing IPv6 and ultimately protect mission critical networks.”
“It takes a new breed of industry partner to help government agencies address the risks and opportunities of an abruptly changing world,” said Bill Parker, Salient COO. “Salient’s cyber security technology and experienced security professionals look forward to working with the Air Force to help them address the challenges of today and tomorrow.”
