COLUMBIA, Md., March 25, 2013 /PRNewswire/ — General Dynamics Fidelis Cybersecurity Solutions recently opened a state-of-the-art facility dedicated to helping commercial and public sector customers prevent, contain and analyze cyber attacks. General Dynamics’ network defense and forensics services team is based at the Columbia, Md., lab. This team works closely with customers to combat advanced cyber attacks by assessing their security posture; designing, building and managing a security infrastructure that is capable of discovering and containing advanced threats; and responding to sophisticated attacks quickly and effectively when they occur.
Staffed by professionals with decades of experience protecting networks and solving the toughest cyber incidents, the new lab employs the latest technology innovations and threat intelligence from across the General Dynamics family of cybersecurity products and solutions and the industry at-large. Drawing on this unique depth and breadth of experience, the team helps customers after an attack by identifying and containing attacks, recovering critical data, performing network forensics and helping build up network defenses to protect against future threats.
“Today’s rapidly evolving threat landscape is more perilous than ever before, with organizations around the world aggressively attacked by sophisticated advanced persistent threats,” said Jim Jaeger, vice president of cybersecurity services at General Dynamics Fidelis Cybersecurity Solutions. “We have a tremendous team that has collectively handled more than 3,500 breach cases. We help customers decipher and counter threats by going beyond the standard procedures of cyber forensics and actually reverse engineering attacks.”
In the event of a breach, the team preserves evidence and maintains detailed evidence logs to help prosecutors more effectively identify and pursue cyber criminals. The team has played an instrumental role in gathering and analyzing forensic evidence and providing it to law enforcement to help indict and convict multiple groups of organized international cyber criminals.
“We work to truly understand the methods adversaries use, find the clues they might leave behind and uncover the motivations driving their attacks,” said Jaeger. “The combination of our expert skills with our innovative use of technology is one of the most powerful in the industry. We have a proven track record of successfully counteracting targeted attacks.”
