ARMONK, NY – August 13, 2013 —  IBM today announced its industry leading security software and services offering will be part of the Department of Homeland Security’s (DHS) Continuous Diagnostics and Mitigation (CDM) program.

The CDM Program will provide specialized Information Technology (IT) tools and Continuous Monitoring as a Services (CMaaS) to combat cyber threats in the civilian and “.gov” networks including various network endpoints and mobile devices. The CDM Program moves the nation’s networks to a more real-time approach for the combat of advanced threats from the current legacy historical compliance reporting model.

As part of the up to $6 billion CDM Program, agencies can leverage IBM consulting services as well security intelligence software including IBM Security Endpoint Manager, IBM Security Appscan and IBM Security QRadar.

“This award from DHS demonstrates that IBM’s $4B annual investment in cybersecurity and security analytics research puts IBM in a unique position to help government agencies meet evolving cybersecurity threats,” said Anne Altman, General Manager, IBM US Federal.  “IBM’s will draw from our decades of experience working with federal agencies and worldwide clients and our own internal experience in securing the worldwide networks used by our 400,000 plus employees.”

Software technologies from IBM will help securing the thousands of endpoints on vulnerable networks as well as integrating “threat and event data” in real time.  IBM Security Endpoint Manager offers a unified management platform that automates and
streamlines systems and security management.  IBM QRadar Security Intelligence Platform provides a dashboard and unified architecture for integrating Security Information and Event Management (SIEM), log management, anomaly detection, and configuration and vulnerability management.

State and local agencies can also benefit from the CDM Program leveraging the buying power and consistency offered by the program.  The CDM Program will help transform the way Federal and other government entities manage their cyber networks through strategically sourced tools and services and enhances the ability of government entities to strengthen the posture of their cyber networks. The CDM Program brings an enterprise approach to continuous diagnostics, and allows consistent application of best practices.
