DoD cybersecurity tech to be standardized by RTI
SUNNYVALE, Calif. Real-Time Innovations (RTI), the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) connectivity company, announced that it won $500,000 in additional government funding to continue support of their Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) Phase II contract.
According to the company, RTI will augment its Connext DDS commercial software product to advance the cybersecurity capabilities of the U.S. Department of Defense (DoD) by bridging the gap between proprietary cybersecurity solutions and standardization.
RTI was granted additional funding to focus on the provisioning of the DoD’s cybersecurity tools aiming to enable secure, reliable, and rapid delivery of updates to their cyber infrastructure. With the previous government funding, RTI was able to develop data models for cyber tools and evolve those data models over time.
RTI delivered common, open cyber tool data models and application control interfaces intended to enable plug-and-play cyber tool interoperability between providers including major cybersecurity antivirus tools and SIEMs.
The company claims that the capability they are developing is designed to give control back to system owners, allowing them to select the best cyber tool software for the job and to enable disparate systems and tools to transparently coexist.
