BAE Systems announced a new collaboration with Splunk Inc. to integrate Splunk Enterprise into its government cloud solution.
The federated secure cloud, developed by BAE Systems and Dell EMC, is a scalable, hybrid cloud solution designed from the ground up to meet both the mission needs and security requirements for any US Intelligence Community, Department of Defense (DoD), or federal/civilian government organization.
“The security tools and advanced machine learning algorithms included with Splunk Enterprise automate the analysis of our cloud security logs, instantly alerting security administrators of potential risks,” said Peder Jungck, vice president and general manager of BAE Systems’ Intelligence Solutions business. “This is a core part of our federated secure cloud strategy – leveraging the best security technologies on the market to give network administrators an unparalleled level of awareness and security control.”
The federated secure cloud arrives embedded with multiple network-monitoring capabilities to provide administrators a greater understanding of their users, data, infrastructure, and tools.
“Cybersecurity threats are one of the biggest risks to federal agencies today, and analysts need to make decisions faster than ever before to safeguard these agencies,” said Gary DePreta, area vice president, Defense, Intelligence and Aerospace, Splunk. “By embedding Splunk Enterprise within the federated secure cloud, analysts are able to utilize machine learning to detect and respond to threats faster, make more informed decisions, and focus on proactive security strategies.”
The federated secure cloud has the flexibility to operate seamlessly on any Microsoft Azure, AWS or on-premise cloud system, yet can be customized to support any government organization transitioning to a secure hybrid cloud environment – to include smaller forward-operating units.
Microsoft has reached an agreement to provide 17 US intelligence agencies with its cloud-computing platform, The Washington Post reported. According to the media outlet, citing the company's executives, the new deal will allow it to move intelligence agencies computer systems onto Microsoft Office 365 apps and add some cloud-based apps that had previously been unavailable to them

DARPA seeks to create scalable cloud-based repository of global satellite data accessible via common interfaces, and pilot development of analytics-as-a-service for DoD users. The rapid pace of new commercial satellite constellation launches has led to a significant increase in the amount and availability of geospatial imagery
The US Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) demonstrated a new sensor that can capture real-time video through clouds. The Video Synthetic Aperture Radar (ViSAR) program, which began in 2013, has been developing an Extremely High Frequency (EHF) targeting sensor to operate through clouds as effectively as current electro-optical and infrared (EO/IR) sensors operate in clear weather
