ECS has partnered with Elastic NV to provide the Department of Homeland Security's Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency with an integrated dashboard platform for continuous monitoring and mitigation of cyber threats and vulnerabilities within the CISA ecosystem.

This is the second iteration of the dashboard, intended to expand and enhance the current solution as part of the CDM Dashboard Ecosystem, which delivers cyber situational awareness data to federal civilian agencies and summarizes risk exposure across the federal government, Elastic said Thursday.

“The rising volume and velocity of cyber-attacks against government networks present a continued challenge for federal agencies,” said George Wilson, president of ECS and 2019 Wash100 Award recipient. “I am confident in our state-of-the-art cybersecurity solutions, and the innovation and integrity of Elastic, our technology partner, to build a next-generation cyber analytics ecosystem for the federal government.”

Both companies will work to simplify data aggregation and enrichment, risk scoring and data visualization processes. The Elastic Stack is designed to support multiple closed-source legacy tools to track and report critical metrics for both cabinet- and sub-level agencies. 

Elastic intends for its technology to support CDM Dashboard II in processing huge volumes of data as the DHS program works to identify all activity on its networks.
