DHS buys software as part of Einstein 3 deployment

The Homeland Security Department has been experimenting with the Einstein 3 intrusion prevention cybersecurity software for almost three years. Now it looks as if the agency is ready to move beyond the test phase.

DHS bought about $20 million worth of software from TIBCO Federal Services earlier this year as part of its plan for broader deployment of the Einstein 3 program.

“With our messaging software, we have adapters that will allow all the users to connect all the different systems and components of the cyber stack back up to the enterprise bus, and then we bring the information together in real time,” said Dick Martin, president of TIBCO federal. “By accessing the information for all the different systems in real time, we can react more quickly.”
