SAIC unveils zero trust edge capabilities
On November 2, Reston, VA-based Science Applications International Corp. (SAIC) announced new, purpose-built Zero Trust security capabilities, which provide a solution to answer the Zero Trust pillars addressing data, identity, devices, networks, applications and workloads.
The new Zero Trust security capabilities have been tested and validated on an AWS Snowball Edge and AWS Snow Family device with on-board storage and compute power for select Amazon Web Services (AWS) capabilities. AWS Snowball Edge can support local processing and edge-computing workloads in addition to transferring data between a user’s local environment and AWS.
“SAIC has brought together the best-in-class tools to deliver a mission-ready Zero Trust Edge capabilities that provides multi-level secure data processing and analytics and prioritizes data in a DDIL environment to transport back to the cloud,” said Lauren Knausenberger, chief innovation officer at SAIC. “This provides warfighters with a critical capability to extend their enterprise OCONUS, with the ability to run disconnected ops and rapidly adopt technologies and capabilities needed for mission success. This capability has the potential to be a critical enabler for Combined Joint All-Domain Command and Control (JADC2), with the ability to deploy at forward operating bases, on air platforms and at sea.”
Through the combined efforts of AWS; SAIC; Koverse, an SAIC company; Okta; CrowdStrike; Zscaler and Splunk, ready-to-install cybersecurity and Zero Trust technologies combine data and provide multi-level security from the edge through the enterprise. This capability meets the challenges of Wide Area Network (WAN) or no WAN connectivity by enabling offline compute capabilities and replicates mission-critical data after connectivity is restored. These components of software and hardware allow the capabilities to address the five pillars of the Zero Trust Maturity Model and therefore help increase cybersecurity posture at the edge.
SAIC is an industry leader in cloud and cybersecurity, addressing Zero Trust security capabilities, including the latest capabilities which have been validated and tested on an AWS Snowball Edge device.
