Northrop Grumman (NYSE:NOC) outlined a new methodology for strengthening data security in the “cloud” during the 6th Annual SANS Institute Cyber Defense Initiative conference.

The firm rolled out its new “Cyber Architecture Reference Series, ” an approach to creating the tightest security possible for public and private clouds.

“Although many private clouds can be made highly secure, more and more federal agencies are seeking a hybrid cloud approach to expand capacity and respond to emergency server needs, like the Haitian earthquake, when agencies needed additional IT capacity, ” said Robert F. Brammer, vice president of advanced technology and chief technology officer, Northrop Grumman Information Systems. “This move to a hybrid cloud delivers immediate resources but, by adding a public server, increases security risks. Our architecture reference model is one of the first to use a multilayered defense-in-depth approach, proven with a government customer, to secure the hybrid cloud. Our goal is to provide expanded capacity, using a public server, with the same level of security as a traditional private network.”
