Kratos Partners With AlienVault to Enhance Cyber Security and Situational Awareness in Satellite Communications
Kratos Defense & Security Solutions, Inc., a leading National Security Solutions provider, announced today that its RT Logic subsidiary has entered into an exclusive partnership with AlienVault to design, develop and deliver new cyber security solutions for the Satellite Communications (SATCOM) industry. The goal is to help defense, government and commercial satellite operators significantly improve their cyber situational awareness, threat management, incident response and to more readily comply with DIACAP, SEC and other government regulations.
Under the terms of the agreement, the two companies will integrate their respective technologies to develop products and solutions targeting the SATCOM sector. The disparate nature of many SATCOM systems and devices presents unique security challenges for mission and network specialists. The two companies will combine their expertise to address these challenges and to ease the burden of compliance requirements that are proliferating in an increasingly hostile cyber environment. RT Logic will exclusively market those solutions within the SATCOM industry.
“RT Logic’s commercial-based signal processing systems combined with AlienVault’s Unified SIEM address a critical hole in the SATCOM sector associated with threat management and compliance issues,” said John Monahan, President of RT Logic. “This partnership reinforces Kratos’ commitment to providing our defense, government and commercial customers with the systems and solutions they need to meet their situational awareness and risk mitigation requirements.”
“We are excited about the opportunity to partner with RT Logic to offer joint customers a solution that enhances their security posture,” said Dominique Karg, AlienVault’s CTO. “AlienVault and RT Logic are both leaders in our respective markets and together we will work to develop solutions that will act as the strategic points of control to add security and optimize services as customers scale their overall IT infrastructure. AlienVault’s collaboration with RT Logic will help us expand the capabilities of our solutions and deliver enhanced value for the satellite industry.”
