IBM and MacAulay-Brown will present a new joint security offering intended to provide users network trust across multiple security domains and help the U.S. military collaborate with coalition partners.
The companies will debut their MLS Single Security Architecture at the three-day Joint Warfighting Conference, which starts Tuesday in Virginia Beach, Va., IBM and MacB announced Tuesday.
IBM provides its zEnterprise(R)System server for the architecture and the companies say that server is the only commercial server that holds the Common Criteria Evaluation Assurance Level 5+ security classification.
“In almost every area, the military has transformed its warfighting capability to support the increased demand for information sharing and collaboration,” said Mark Sinclair, vice president of MacB’s warfighter support division.
“One of the exceptions is in the area of Multi-level security, which continues to rely on a multi-layered architecture,” Sinclair added.
