Individual entities, governments, and corporate bodies are always on the lookout for innovative ways to keep hackers out. For this reason, D.C-based Equator Corporations sought and go approval to license NASA’s cybersecurity systems.
The company collaborated with NASA’s strategic partnerships office at Goddard Space Flight Centre, Maryland. The license gives the company access to technology that will help to fight cyber-attacks. The system uses tools that have not been used elsewhere.
SPO’s senior technology manager stated that Equator now has an opportunity to buff up their cybersecurity across the nation. Together with Equator’s trademarked technology, the likelihood for hackers accessing delicate information.
Data breaches are quite common, and the consequences for governments and corporations are severe. Often, the consequences include identity theft and loss of data. An organization that is victim of a data breach also end up with a poor brand image. Such companies also end up incurring monetary fines for failing to secure their systems.
NASA’s security program will help to support systems responsible for monitoring suspicious online activity. The system gathers user data from workstation, devices and uses it to analyse patterns cybersecurity for malicious intent.
The system is able to detect suspicious activity by simply checking authorization at multiple areas. It was developed to identify unauthorized activities without the need for substantial infrastructural modifications. Inventors at Goddard came up with this system, and their goal was to find innovative ways to improve NASA’s Security.
Equator was established 11 years ago to offer services in project management, cybersecurity, technical management, and engineering. They also offer training to various clients, which includes NASA.
