Cybersecurity and Compliance for Government

Atomicorp provides HIDS and XDR security and compliance for government organizations

Government agencies across the globe and their supply chains are under attack. Government servers and websites are frequent targets, putting cybersecurity expertise at a premium in the public sector. Once the perimeter is breached, lateral movement schemes spread malicious payloads and hacker access points within the perimeter that linger and allow for further exploitation. Static defenses such as signature-based anti-malware have proven to be easily overwhelmed.

Intertwined with these cybersecurity threats and resource challenges are security-related compliance challenges. Some of these are government-specific compliance requirements like Federal Information Security Modernization Act (FISMA). There are also NIST, CNSS, and JSIG mandates governing which security and privacy controls must be used to define systems and handle sensitive and classified national security systems. Other pressures include the ‘modernization mantra’ that government agencies follow toward improved cybersecurity.

Finally, with governments charging for services and licenses, as well as using credit card systems, they have financial data to protect by law, and PCI-DSS to comply with. They have government employees and contractors using untold numbers of interconnected devices and sensitive databases for which they must comply with other laws and regulations concerning sensitive data, such as HIPAA. Security and compliance both demand that the devices, data, and access be protected and orchestrated along secure pathways.

Whether it’s critical infrastructure for missions, nationwide operations, or just initially lower risk profiles for day-to-day governance work, government agencies must be prepared with robust intrusion detection and response mechanisms.

Strong Advanced Security for Government and DoD

Atomicorp intrusion detection and response enables governments to reduce and protect attack surfaces, stop lateral movement, and comply with all federal government security requirements, both classified and unclassified.

  • NIST SP 800-53, NIST SP 800-171, FISMA, HIPAA, PCI-DSS, CNSS, CMMC, and JSIG compliant security software and professional support for mission-critical systems, including air-gapped platforms.
  • Intrusion detection and file integrity monitoring (FIM) across all your endpoints, including cloud workloads and containers.
  • Protection across servers, desktops, VMs, clouds, and containers, including legacy systems such as Solaris, AIX, and Windows end of life.
  • Security that keeps up with DevOps needs, as innovative apps are rapidly engineered.
  • 100% U.S.-based development.
  • The ability to provide security for critical military infrastructure, including legacy environments and disconnected systems.
  • The ability to provide dedicated service teams.

Want a real time view of the state of all of your computing assets? Need to take security to the next level, out to all connection points?

Atomicorp brings a NIST-compliant host-based security system, also known as host-based intrusion detection system (HIDS), named Atomic OSSEC. The platform detects and optionally makes changes to the environment to respond to attacks in real time. Specifically, the platform can check the system for compliance violations, vulnerabilities, malware and rootkits, shield the workload from vulnerabilities, manage firewall policies, track and record system and file changes, and maintain forensics copies of these changes, all in a lightweight system.

Compliance challenges? The platform continuously scans systems against a variety of compliance regulations and standards including PCI DSS, HIPAA, GDPR, CIS, JSIG, NIST and others, ensuring ongoing compliance and continuous monitoring. In addition, Atomic OSSEC is an approved solution within the Department of Defense Platform One, DevSecOps Platform (DSOP). DSOP is a collection of approved, hardened, Cloud Native Computing Foundation (CNCF) compliant Kubernetes distributions, infrastructure as code playbooks, and hardened containers, providing a quicker glide path on your DevSecOps journey.

Intrusion Detection, FIM, and WAFs for Federal Orgs

Atomicorp brings strong intrusion detection and response capabilities in an inexpensive security and compliance platform based on versatile open-source software.

Atomic OSSEC provides automatic log file analysis and retention, advanced file integrity monitoring, vulnerability scanning, compliance scanning, security information and event management (SIEM), reporting and analysis. It’s a perfect platform for government security and compliance, supporting NIST 800-53 and NIST 800-171, CMMC, JSIG, PCI-DSS, FIPS, HIPAA, and more. It is the advanced and layered security necessary to fend off constant cyberattacks while keeping up with protection (DevOps security) over increasingly innovative government DevOps.

Atomic OSSEC empowers your security operations team to:

  • Analyze host behavior from the kernel level up to and into user space, including plug-in modules to analyze network protocols and to perform API inspection and protection of Layer 7 protocols, e.g., web services. The solution also has HIDS and NIDS modules to detect system level and network level events directed against a host.
  • Monitor hosts for unauthorized memory operations, and provide memory space protections.
  • Detect and prevent attacks against the system kernel and detect anomalous behavior in the kernel. The system includes a least privilege role based access control system that can constrain behavior of applications beyond what’s available in white-listing and Mandatory Access Control (MAC) products.
  • Integrate threat intelligence sources and leverage a threat intelligence system powered by Atomicorp’s massive open source and commercial user base.
  • Monitor and analyze process activity in accordance with user defined policies. This includes best practice policies out of the box.
  • Detect and report all changes to the system, including additions, modifications and removals.
  • Monitor and analyze libraries used by applications for changes and malicious actions.
  • Detect and block rootkits.
  • Orchestrate rogue system identification and blocking.
  • Employ active response. Supported by advanced detection, the active response in Atomic OSSEC includes powerful alerting as to what suddenly changed, as well as blocking, air gapping, and quarantining.
  • Support integration with third party products through a robust API, as well as command line tools.
  • Support all major operating systems, including Microsoft Windows, MacOS, and Linux
  • Support Secure RedHawk, a real-time Linux OS.
  • Support legacy platforms, including AIX, Solaris, HP-UX, OpenVMS, 32bit Linux architectures, as well as support for end of life platforms (call our sales team for details).

Atomic OSSEC is a scalable and flexible, multi-platform, open source host-based intrusion detection system (HIDS). It has a powerful correlation and analysis engine, integrating log analysis, machine learning, file integrity monitoring, Windows registry monitoring, centralized policy enforcement, rootkit detection, real-time alerting, vulnerability discovery, self-healing capability and active response to attacks. It runs on most operating systems, including Linux, MacOS, Solaris, HP-UX, AIX, Windows and more, ensuring federal cyber security requirements are met in hybrid modern and legacy system environments.
