Sightline Systems Monitoring Solution Approved for Department of Homeland Security CDM

Fairfax, VA (PRWEB) September 30, 2015 – Sightline Systems, a real-time operations intelligence solution company focused on operational security, root-cause analysis and performance management, announced that its unified monitoring solution has been approved by the U.S. Department of Homeland Security (DHS) for use on its Continuous Diagnostics and Mitigation (CDM) Blanket Purchase Agreement (BPA).

Through its strategic partnership with MicroTech, a respected Service-Disabled Veteran-Owned Small Business (SDVOSB) and industry leading prime contractor on more than 100 federal projects and 20 procurement vehicles, Sightline Systems will provide continuous monitoring, diagnosis and mitigation activities designed to strengthen the security posture of the federal computer networks.

Sightline ACE’s Risk Analysis Platform performs dynamic risk calculations that incorporate thousands of best practices and configuration frameworks including DISA STIGs, NIST, ISO, HIPAA and CIS on any infrastructure device, on premise or in the cloud. Sightline has remained an innovative and unique offering that bridges the gap between operational intelligence and data monitoring to security analysis.

Under the CDM program, DHS will centrally oversee the procurement, operations and maintenance of deployed diagnostic sensors. Using input from the sensors and agency-level dashboards, officials will gain the ability to quickly identify system problems and empower technical managers to prioritize corrective actions and mitigate risks. The company’s solution is currently available for other government agencies using GSA’s Alliant GWAC, important for DHS CMA Group F agencies that need a government-grade monitoring solution.

MicroTech brings innovative partnerships with leading IT companies to the federal marketplace, and chose to partner with Sightline Systems because of the high level of value, positive past performance and decades of monitoring experience it brings to the table. MicroTech believes that the Sightline partnership will help MicroTech’s federal clients find better answers for increasing security, performance and productivity.

Sightline’s monitoring tool is integral to MicroTech’s solution to provide agencies with the ability to enhance and automate existing continuous network monitoring capabilities, correlate and analyze critical security-related information, and strengthen risk-based decision-making at the agency and federal enterprise level.

“For the past 20 years, Sightline Systems has been a trusted DISA partner for providing monitoring solutions,” said Brandon Witte, CEO and President, Sightline Systems. “Our company has benefited by evolving to meet the growing demands of government agencies that need, more than ever, to ensure that they keep their finger on the pulse of the complex IT systems that make government work. Together with MicroTech, we’re proud to help DHS continue to meet and exceed its IT mission objectives for years to come.”
