The Department of Veterans Affairs is seeking information on a security incident event management service as part of the agency’s efforts to further protect its information technology infrastructure, GCN reported Wednesday.
VA issued a request for information on Jan. 15 to solicit industry feedback on a cybersecurity technology that works to collect and analyze information and log security activity at network endpoints, according to the report.
The department intends for the tools to fulfill the Office of Management and Budget’s requirements for advanced continuous monitoring, GCN reports.
VA described its security infrastructure as being comprised of firewalls, intrusion prevention and detection systems and anti-virus systems, the report says.
GCN reports these tools work to monitor the security status of VA’s network using various management systems in a distributed architecture VA manages from its network and security operations centers in Martinsburg, West Virginia, and Hines, Illinois.
