Secure Decisions Wins U.S. Air Force Cyber Defense Contract

Division of Applied Visions, Inc. to adapt its network security visualization product VIAssist™ to improve the identification of cyber threats for Air Force analysts.

NORTHPORT, NY, November 9, 2010– Secure Decisions, a division of Applied Visions and developer of visual analytic tools for cyber defense, has received a Broad Agency Announcement (BAA) award under the US Air Force Firestarter program. The company was selected for the cyber defense contract by the Air Force Research Laboratory in Rome, NY. Under the contract, Secure Decisions will modify its VIAssist product to augment the analysis of security information and event management data. The work is scheduled to be completed by August of 2012.

VIAssist is Secure Decisions’ award-winning network security visualization product that was originally developed for the U.S. Government to visualize network flow and security event data. The product is now generally available and used by computer security specialists in the government and business sectors to make it easier to identify and communicate network security risks. VIAssist provides multiple interactive graphical representations of network and security data, and offers collaboration and reporting tools to share the information. The visual analysis software is currently being modified for the Department of Homeland Security, for use by the U.S. Computer Emergency Readiness Team.

The Air Force’s Firestarter program funds work to transition Information Assurance and Computer Network Defense Research and Technology from the laboratory to the operational Air Force Commands.
