AppGuard partners with HPE for US DoD’s IPCS-X programme
AppGuard has partnered with Hewlett Packard Enterprise (HPE) to provide advanced cyber stack services to the US Department of Defense (DoD).
Under the collaboration, AppGuard will provide its technologies, including the AppGuard Enterprise for servers, to the Defense Information Systems Agency’s (DISA) Integrated Processor Capacity Services x86 (IPCS-X).
Led by HPE, the IPCS-X is intended to provide the DoD with an integrated hardware and software stack.
AppGuard Sales and Business Development senior vice-president Neal Conlon said: “We are excited to work with Hewlett Packard Enterprise to offer advanced cyber stack services to federal and defence agencies.
“AppGuard continues to gain momentum and play a vital role in enterprise-level cybersecurity, allowing patching teams to be proactive, SOCs to be more agile, and reduce the human footprint through pre-exploit prevention at the kernel level.”
The company’s inheritance and isolation technology is capable of preventing malware from operating.
The benefit is that it can remove the need for continuous monitoring or Cloud connection for updates.
AppGuard’s cybersecurity technology offers protection against attacks through automatic isolation of system processes from dynamic code injection.
The technology can block malicious actions without impacting the flow of normal application or utility operation.
HPE US Public Sector vice-president and general manager Joseph Ayers said: “HPE is committed to significantly advancing security environments for the DoD and its technology initiatives with the world’s most secure industry-standard servers, which extends an exclusive security root of trust capability to protect data from the beginning of a server’s supply chain journey through the end of its lifecycle.”
Ayers added that the partnership with AppGuard for the IPCS-X proposal will enhance security for DISA in the Host Based Security Services (HBSS) field.
In December, HPE was awarded a potential ten-year contract to provide x86 processor capacity services to DISA.
