In October of 2017 Forcepoint’s initial application to the U.S. General Services Administration was accepted into the Continuous Diagnostics and Mitigation (CDM) program, which enables agencies to quickly acquire cybersecurity products.
The products Forcepoint NGFW, Forcepoint Email Security, Forcepoint Web Security and Forcepoint DLP were all part of the initial application approved and available on the CDM Approved Product List for Phase Three.
The CDM program enables government entities to expand their continuous monitoring capabilities by increasing their network sensor capacity, automating sensor collections, and prioritizing risk alerts.
The CDM Tools support the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) CDM Program. The hardware and software products and associated services under this SIN undergo a DHS product qualification process in order to be added to the CDM Approved Products List (APL). The full complement of CDM subcategories includes tools, associated maintenance, and other related activities such as training.
The additional products added to the CDM APL further solidified Forcepoint’s commitment to support the DHS led program. Agencies that are designing comprehensive cybersecurity solutions will be able to enhance their understanding of user behavior and data flow throughout an organization to rapidly identify and eliminate risk. These capabilities work together as an intelligent ‘Human Point System’ to protect the human point as people interact with data across disparate networks.
Forcepoint’s Human Point System capabilities are developed with maximum deployment flexibility in mind – customers may implement single products or multiple, integrated technologies that fit within an existing cybersecurity environment and are perfect for agencies leveraging the CDM vehicle.
