SAN DIEGO, March 11, 2012 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Kratos Defense & Security Solutions, Inc. (Nasdaq:KTOS), a leading National Security Solutions provider, announced today that its RT Logic subsidiary released CyberC4™:Alert, the first Security Information Event Manager (SIEM) designed specifically for satellite networks and operations.

RT Logic is a leading provider of innovative products for ground stations, satellite test equipment and satellite operations. RT Logic's products are utilized on over 85% of space missions.
The continued integration of IP-enabled equipment throughout satellite and ground control environments is introducing more attack points and vulnerabilities to mission operations and sensitive information. CyberC4:Alert constantly monitors for cyber security threats by gathering security event data from across the satellite network to provide situational awareness. A correlation engine with user-defined rules and policies prioritizes events by their severity, alerting users of system threats, performance issues, and compliance violations through a flexible drill-down dashboard.
This all-in-one DIACAP (Department of Defense Information Assurance Certification and Accreditation Process) compliant application is designed for use on military, government and commercial SATCOM environments. Currently more than 80% of military satellite communications engage commercial satellite infrastructure, making DIACAP compliance a critical necessity. CyberC4:Alert is composed of three software modules including Dashboard, Sensor, and Logger, which together collect, analyze, and report on security event data for immediate internal and external threat management, DIACAP compliance and forensics. Sensor acts as the "eye" of the network by detecting intrusions, anomalies, vulnerabilities, and unauthorized activity. Events are sent to the Dashboard screen display for user action and resolution, and to the Logger, where they are digitally signed and stored to ensure chain-of-custody.
"CyberC4:Alert is a force multiplier for network and security personnel who otherwise face the near impossible task of manually sifting through what may be thousands of log files generated per second to find out if something is threatening the network," said Jerry Meleski, Vice President of RT Logic.
CyberC4-Alert automates DIACAP compliance reporting, where such event violations otherwise may not be discovered until long after they've occurred, if at all.
CyberC4:Alert comes complete with plug-ins for RT Logic products and other SATCOM mission unique equipment, eliminating the need for costly software development. CyberC4:Alert is the first product to be released in RT Logic's CyberC4 line of cyber security and mission assurance solutions. CyberC4:Alert will be demonstrated at Kratos' booth #516 at Satellite2012 in Washington, DC, March 12-15, 2012. For more information about CyberC4:Alert, visit http://www.rtlogic.com/cyber.pdf
