Ernst & Young to Offer LANL's Behavioral Cyber Tools in Commercial Market - top government contractors - best government contracting event

cyber hack network computerErnst & Young and the Los Alamos National Laboratory have entered into a strategic alliance to bring the lab’s behavioral cybersecurity tools to the commercial marketplace amid a growing sophistication of attacks.

“Defensive cybersecurity is an area that requires strong public-private partnerships to shift the balance,” Duncan McBranch, chief technology officer at LANL, said Tuesday.

EY will exclusively offer technologies once government-only such as PathScan, which works to detect network behavior anomalies that can indicate intrusion.

“The seriousness of the cybersecurity threat facing corporate America requires the use of such security-sensitive tools developed by Los Alamos,” said Siobhan MacDermott, principal for cybersecurity at Ernst & Young.

According to LANL, the transfer of PathScan to the commercial market is part of the Department of Homeland Security‘s Transition to Practice program.
