Adaptive Network Security Management
Phone: (703) 790-7295
Mountain Wave, Inc. proposes to investigate the development of an automated network security management product that would allow personnel within an Information Technology (IT) organization to combine information from heterogeneous sources into an integrated application that captures business processes and automates tasks to "prevent" potential security violations. This product will: be "extensible", scalable, easy to configure and not tied to specific platform and operating system issues; provide the capability to incorporate existing system security administration tools and network management tools; provide automation capabilities within the product that can tailor pre-determined responses that reflect appropriate actions required in a particular situation; adapt to changing network configurations that affect security. The architecture of this product will be designed so that the framework built to provide adaptive network security management can be extended to work with other management frameworks. Existing products are costly and targeted for Fortune 500 companies who have the resources to spend on solutions that address the whole gamut. Smaller businesses have no such option that helps them manage a small scale network for security violations. This product should be able to be packaged so that it can provide cheaper solutions for such organizations.
