The DoD manufacturer needed to meet DRFARS 7012 Requirements by 12/31/2017?
DoD manufacturer needed to meet DFARS 7012 monitoring and logging, boundary protection, and continuous monitoring requirements. They didn’t have a security team or tools in place. However, they did have a solid IT team in place. The manufacturer also wanted to remove End of Life equipment such as firewall, and VPN, to defend their critical CDI information. In addition, they needed support in establishing a DFARS compliant continuous monitoring solution. That is when InfusionPoints stepped in and got the job done.
InfusionPoints designed and deployed VNSOC360° managed cyber security services to help this customer meet DFARS 7012 requirements:
VNSOC360° Monitoring and Logging capability that includes: threat intelligence, network and host intrusion detection, security information and event management (SIEM), vulnerability, log, asset, and availability management in to their IT environment.
