Lockheed Martin embracing open source with enhanced cybersecurity

Lockheed Martin continues to embrace open source technology, and is working to make sure its software is more secure from cyberattack (NYSE:LMT)

Lockheed Martin has partnered with the Open Information Security Foundation (OISF) to embrace an open source software platform that also has enhanced intrusion detection and other cybersecurity guidelines. The system allows for fast automated cyberthreat sharing, with machine-to-machine data analytics up to 40Gb/second, according to Lockheed Martin.




Here is what Kelley Misata, OISF VP of community research, said in a press statement: "OISF is excited to welcome Lockheed Martin into the consortium. Our collaboration is already well underway to build several very exciting new features into Suricata to ensure yet another great set of tools in the network defenders arsenal."


Trying to keep software and networks secure is a major effort - and Lockheed Martin, which works closely with the U.S. government - will have a step up on competition while trying to defend against cyberattacks.
