DHS has approved a data center infrastructure management solution from Nlyte, making it the first to meet the criteria of the agency’s Continuous Diagnostics and Mitigation Program.
The CDM Program provides DHS and federal agencies with capabilities and tools to identify cybersecurity risks on an ongoing basis, prioritize these risks based on potential impacts, and enable cybersecurity personnel to mitigate the most significant problems first. It offers industry-leading, commercial off-the-shelf (COST) tools to support technical modernization as threats change.
The Nlyte software suite now becomes the first DCIM solution to meet the Program’s Phase 1 criteria to manage and control devices (HWAM) and software (SWAM) on government networks.
“By using our DCIM solution, organizations can adhere to CDM requirements by discovering all network-connected hardware and associated software, as well as being alerted to any configuration changes that may impose vulnerabilities,” said Andrew Ryan, vice president of federal accounts, Nlyte software. “Without the ability to easily view and understand this vital information, across all computing infrastructure, IT personnel remain unaware of many potential security risks. We are honored to provide the first DCIM solution to meet these rigorous and important requirements.”
Over 35 federal agencies across civilian, intelligence and defense organizations are using or currently deploying the Nlyte DCOI platform to attain compliance with FITARA and achieve consistency with the Modernizing Government Technology Act.
