PacStar and Fidelis Cybersecurity are set to unveil a new fully integrated tactical cybersecurity system featuring automated cyberthreat detection and response capabilities for securing in-theater and executive communications on the battlefield.

The PacStar Tactical Fidelis Cybersecurity System is designed to address three specific Department of Defense challenges: “tactical networks frequently are poorly secured; cybersecurity technologies are too large and expensive to deploy; and there is a lack of trained cyber specialists rapidly available in the field,” the companies said in a release.

To address these challenges, the system provides enhanced cyberthreat visibility and simplifies incident response by automating cyberthreat detection and validation, all while remaining small enough to meet the demanding size, weight, power and reliability requirements for tactical military operations. A “single-pane of glass” management GUI assists networking specialists with management and troubleshooting.

“This will immediately address security gaps in the network, while improving operational efficiencies where resources are limited,” said Tim Roddy, vice president of product management and marketing at Fidelis Cybersecurity.

PacStar and Fidelis Cybersecurity will conduct live demonstrations at the Armed Forces Communications and Electronics Association WEST Conference, taking place Feb. 6-8 in San Diego, California.
