ECS, which earlier this year won a potential $276.1 million task order to supply the Department of Homeland Security with an integrated dashboard to help with monitoring and mitigating cyber security threats across the federal civilian government, is partnered with the Dutch company Elastic N.V. [ESTC] for its solution.
Elastic N.V. will provide its Elastic Stack platform, which has capabilities for data storage, search, analyze, visualize, navigate and share.
ECS was the incumbent contractor for the DHS Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency’s first Continuous Diagnostics and Mitigation (CDM) program dashboard. ECS said on Thursday that Elastic’s platform will simplify the architecture for the CDM Dashboard II and “will augment, and in some cases replace, multiple closed-source legacy components to more accurately and efficiently track and report critical metrics for both cabinet- and sub-level agencies.”
CISA’s CDM dashboard and agency dashboards display information from CDM tools that agencies deploy on their networks, providing situational awareness of cyber security posture and allowing users to identify risks to their networks.
“Elastic is on track to reduce time to insight from weeks to seconds,” ECS said.
ECS is a business of ASGN Inc. [ASGN], which provides information technology and professional services to the technology, digital, engineering, life sciences and government sectors.
