IBM to support U.S. Air Force cyber security efforts

  • 08-Feb-2010 02:37 EST

The U.S. Air Force awarded IBM a contract to design and demonstrate a secure cloud computing infrastructure capable of supporting defense and intelligence networks. The 10-month project will introduce advanced cyber security and analytics technologies developed by IBM Research into the cloud architecture. Advanced "stream computing," coupled with sensors, monitors, and other detection devices, would enable the Air Force to perpetually analyze the massive amounts of data flowing through its network and get fast, accurate, and actionable insights about possible threats, such as cyber attacks and network, system, or application failures, while automatically preventing disruptions.
