BlackStratus has recommended U.S. government agencies deploy security information event management technology to address potential cyber attacks on agencies that send, receive and store election-related data.
The company said Thursday its SIEM technology was designed to support security administrators on tasks to identify when potential cyber attacks have commenced and report suspicious and irregular activities that occur on a network.
“SIEM technology is an integral part of the security and compliance apparatus of a network and when it’s not deployed it can expose huge risks to anyone and anything coming in contact with that particular network,” said Mike Maxwell, BlackStratus chief security officer.
“The recent cyberattacks on election related data within the states of Arizona and Illinois not only represent a clear and present danger to not just our democracy and voters, but to the integrity of our elections.”
BlackStratus offers SIEM products and services designed to help protect millions of devices and thousands of customers around the globe that include managed service providers and enterprises who seek security and compliance management software.
