Article Excerpt: "Potential Movement in Federal Cybersecurity Toward Commercial Firms'
Author: Edward P. Moser, Alexandria, VA
The cybersecurity market for the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) and Department of Defense (DoD) has traditionally been dominated by the large, established defense contractors. Indeed, after 9-11 firms such as Northrop Grumman and Lockheed Martin accelerated their efforts in this field. Raytheon, for example, established a homeland security division in 2002. "You still see a pretty significant reliance on system integrators," said Shannon Kellogg, Director of Government and Industry Affairs for Bedford, MA-based RSA Security (Nasdaq, RSAS). "And many of the defense contractors are updating their technology lab processes to also get to emerging technologies earlier."
However, a trend may be emerging toward greater use by DHS, DoD, and other IT security-conscious agencies of the more commercially IT outfits such as Adobe Systems, Inc. and nCipher. "We are starting to see a stronger push in certain agencies - particularly in the DoD, intelligence and DHS communities - to have direct contact with innovators," said Kellogg, "to get access to emerging technologies earlier in the procurement process."
