GenXComm | October 29, 2020
Four startups this week won $50K a piece and an opportunity to pilot and test out their technologies at the Marine Corps Air Station, or MCAS, Miramar’s 5G Living Lab in San Diego. The chosen companies—COMSovereign, GenXComm, Omnispace, and vRotors—competed against nearly 50 total for the top spots through the National Security Innovation Network or NSIN’s Navy/USMC 5G Pitch Competition. That network is an organization within the Pentagon’s Defense Innovation Unit.
“All of the winners are developing technology that either will help the Marines establish and deploy secure 5G networks domestically and abroad, or uses the benefits of 5G networks to deliver new strategic capabilities to the war fighter,” NSIN’s Pacific South Regional Director Jesse Gipe explained.
Google Cloud | July 21, 2021
Google Cloud today announced new Zero Trust offerings for government, a set of services designed to assist US federal, state, and local government organizations in implementing Zero Trust architecture by the Biden Administration's Executive Order on Improving the Nation's Cybersecurity and National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) standards.
Google Cloud is introducing three new service options to assist departments and agencies in meeting Zero Trust requirements:
Offerings for Zero Trust Assessment and Planning: The Zero Trust Assessment and Planning solution, provided by Google Cloud's professional services organization (PSO), is intended to assist the government in meeting security objectives via Zero Trust architecture planning for key applications and data. The PSO team at Google Cloud will assist government organizations on the culture change, policies, and technology required to create a Zero Trust framework, which will be provided in phases to ensure success inside the customer's infrastructure. In addition, this new service will assist government agencies in using Google Cloud tools to support existing assets and infrastructure in the cloud, on-premises, or hybrid settings.
Secure Application Access Anywhere offering: Google Cloud is also introducing Secure Application Access Anywhere, a new container-based solution for secure application access and monitoring. Secure Application Access Anywhere may be a scalable, highly responsive alternative for government network border systems. This solution, developed in collaboration with Palo Alto Networks and Google Cloud's PSO team, uses Google Cloud's Anthos to deploy and manage containers that enable secure access and monitoring for applications in the cloud or on-premises environments. A recent successful prototype of this solution with the Defense Innovation Unit (DIU)—an entity inside the Defense Department in accelerating DIU's Zero Trust journey by allowing users to access software-as-a-service (SaaS) apps directly over the internet.
Active Cyber Threat Detection offering: Google Cloud's new Active Cyber Threat Detection offering may assist government organizations in rapidly determining whether they have been compromised by cyberattacks that they have not yet identified. Active Cyber Threat Detection is provided by Google Cloud partners Deloitte and Fishtech CYDERES and builds on the proven capabilities of Google Cloud's Chronicle threat hunting, detection, and investigation platform. This service will enable government organizations of all sizes to easily analyze their historical and current log data to detect risks with confidence and quickness.
In addition to these new offerings, Google Cloud provides several existing solutions that assist government organizations in accelerating their journey to Zero Trust as well as protecting against and recovering from cyberattacks:
• BeyondCorp Enterprise: Google's Zero Trust access solution secures access to internal web apps, SaaS applications, and cloud resources using access rules based on identity and device contextual data. It also provides customers with integrated threat and data security, such as malware and data leakage prevention and credential protection.
• Google Workspace also uses Google's Zero Trust technologies to provide a secure email, communication, and collaboration solution.
• Actifio GO can help organizations better respond to ransomware attacks by offering scalable and efficient incremental data protection and a unique near-instant data recovery capability.
When combined, these Google Cloud services can accelerate the US government's Zero Trust efforts to defend against cyberattacks while also enhancing detection, response, and recovery from cyberattacks that do occur.
