Air Force's plan for Advanced Battle Management System

The Pentagon wants command and control that covers all domains. To do so, it's relying on the Air Force to build a network-of-networks backbone called the Advanced Battle Management System to allow data and information to flow across air, land, sea, space and cyber. The service recently awarded a $905 million contract for work on the system to Los Angeles-based Silvus Technologies. Silvus will supply the Air Force with a mobile ad hoc network (MANET) for its “MeshONE” network under the ABMS. Jackson Barnett has the latest.

Zscaler brings zero trust to the Pentagon

The Defense Innovation Unit sealed a deal with Zscaler to pilot a secure cloud management solution that may eventually provide zero-trust access to about 500,000 concurrent Pentagon users.

Silicon Valley-based DIU aims to accelerate its adoption across the Department of Defense over time. Dave Nyczepir has the scoop.


CISA developing a DNS resolver

The Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency rolling out a new Domain Name System (DNS) resolver service, with a plan to eventually provide it governmentwide.

"Operated defensively, protective DNS can protect agencies and their users from attacks and ensure online systems are resilient," said a CISA spokesperson. "The service will also afford CISA insight into active cyber threats for analysis and future protection of the federal enterprise." Dave has more.
