Bandura’s partnership with DHS helps the company to collectively protect the US and its customers from ever-increasing numbers, complexity, quick mutation and severity of threats.

Bandura, a pioneer in the automation of threat intelligence identification precision in cyber security technologies, today announced that it has signed a Collaborative Research and Development Agreement (CRADA) with the Department of Homeland Security (DHS). Bandura can now share and gain access to new threat information which will contribute to the precision of its cyber threat risk-scoring and automated remediation capability that prevents cyber attack and data leakage for users of its PoliWall® and ProACT™ security platform.

The CRADA will allow Bandura to participate in the Cyber Information and Sharing and Collaboration Program (CISCP), which provides for the sharing of cyber incident, vulnerability and threat information in near real-time from threat activity data observed and submitted by CISCP participants.

Additionally, Bandura will participate in the Enhanced Cybersecurity Services (ECS) Program, where the Department of Homeland Security shares government-vetted cyber threat information with trusted participants, helping them protect systems from unauthorized access or data exfiltration.

Bandura’s partnership with DHS helps the company to collectively protect the US and its customers from ever-increasing numbers, complexity, quick mutation and severity of threats.

In addition to improving network security, the CISCP program provides additional value to Bandura’s PoliWall open security platform, that will make the DHS threat data available to Critical Infrastructure participants large and small, including those who do not have the network or staff to be able to consume and act on this important cyber threat information.    

" Bandura’s parent company TechGuard Security® was founded to secure the US Critical Infrastructure in the year 2000. Bandura’s signing of the CRADA with DHS is both a mission fulfillment as well as a professional asset” says Suzanne Magee, Bandura, CEO. “Determining cyber risk with precision is dependent on our ability to have access to information in real-time regarding emerging threats how they can impact our customers' specific environment. The partnership with the DHS gives us access to a wealth of valuable information through CISCP partners, which include many of the top Information Sharing and Analysis Centers across multiple vertical industries. This allows us to understand up-to-date threat information across financial services, energy, healthcare, retail, federal government and more, which will help secure our customer’s networks."

"Bandura’s industry experience, research and cyber threat understanding, will feed back into the CISCP information sharing programs, helping to collectively protect our critical infrastructures,” said Magee. "Bandura feels entry into the DHS program is an important part of our Mission as a trusted, pioneering cyber security technologies company."
