McAfee has received a contract to provide cyber threat response software assets to support the U.S. Transportation Security Administration.
The company said Tuesday the software will make use of the Data Exchange Layer messaging fabric and OpenDXL initiative to deliver communications across 70 different security platforms.
Under the contract, McAfee will deliver the following platforms: Endpoint Security, Active Response, Server Security Suite with Cloud Workload Discovery and Advanced Threat Defense.
Active Response provides endpoint detection capacities, while Advanced Threat Defense allows for sandboxing.
“Federal security teams need holistic solutions to address the flood of cyber threats agencies are encountering daily with fewer people and resources than ever,“ said Ken Kartsen, vice president of federal at McAfee.
