DLT Solutions and AlienVault Partner to Help Public Sector Organizations Detect and Respond to Security Threats
Herndon, VA — (May 28, 2014) — DLT Solutions, a leading value-added reseller in government information technology (IT) software and services, today announced a new agreement with AlienVault to provide federal, state, local and education (SLED) customers with unified threat detection and compliance management solutions. By partnering with AlienVault, DLT Solutions will now be able to offer SLED and federal customers with more robust cyber security solutions that will include compliance management, threat intelligence and network security management for the world’s most challenging information environments.
AlienVault’s Unified Security Management™ platform provides government organizations with three types of intrusion detection system (IDS) capabilities: network intrusion detection (NIDS), host-based intrusion detection (HIDS), and wireless intrusion detection (WIDS) combined with continuous threat intelligence updates from AlienVault Labs and its Open Threat Exchange – the world’s largest crowd-sourced collaborative threat exchange.
“Adding AlienVault to our portfolio of strategic vendor partners was very important for DLT as we continue building out our security portfolio,” explained Chris Dewey, senior vice president of the Infrastructure and Peripherals division, DLT Solutions. “Our government customers require fast, reliable and the most up-to-the-minute security information to gain a proactive security posture. AlienVault’s Open Threat Exchange will provide them with real-time threat alerts from the world’s largest crowd-sourced repository of known malicious hosts while its unified security management solution deploys and offers advanced threat detection and step-by-step response guidance for attacks.”
AlienVault’s platform will be made available through DLT Solutions’ GSA IT Schedule 70 #GS-35F-4543G and through many of DLT’s other procurement vehicles such as ECS III, federal agency BPA’s and a variety of state and local contracts.
“We look forward to partnering with DLT to provide agencies on all levels with a solution that increases security visibility while reducing complexity in managing threat responses,” said Barmak Meftah, president and CEO, AlienVault. “Our unified security management platform and crowd sourced threat intelligence will prove to be a major asset for federal agencies, the DoD and the intelligence community who must meet a wide array of standards for information security controls and risk management.”
