COLUMBIA, Md., March 25, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- General Dynamics Fidelis
Cybersecurity Solutions recently opened a state-of-the-art facility dedicated
to helping commercial and public sector customers prevent, contain and analyze
cyber attacks. General Dynamics' network defense and forensics services team
is based at the Columbia, Md., lab. This team works closely with customers to
combat advanced cyber attacks by assessing their security posture; designing,
building and managing a security infrastructure that is capable of discovering
and containing advanced threats; and responding to sophisticated attacks
quickly and effectively when they occur.

Staffed by professionals with decades of experience protecting networks and
solving the toughest cyber incidents, the new lab employs the latest
technology innovations and threat intelligence from across the General
Dynamics family of cybersecurity products and solutions and the industry
at-large. Drawing on this unique depth and breadth of experience, the team
helps customers after an attack by identifying and containing attacks,
recovering critical data, performing network forensics and helping build up
network defenses to protect against future threats.

"Today's rapidly evolving threat landscape is more perilous than ever before,
with organizations around the world aggressively attacked by sophisticated
advanced persistent threats," said Jim Jaeger, vice president of cybersecurity
services at General Dynamics Fidelis Cybersecurity Solutions. "We have a
tremendous team that has collectively handled more than 3,500 breach cases. We
help customers decipher and counter threats by going beyond the standard
procedures of cyber forensics and actually reverse engineering attacks."

In the event of a breach, the team preserves evidence and maintains detailed
evidence logs to help prosecutors more effectively identify and pursue cyber
criminals. The team has played an instrumental role in gathering and analyzing
forensic evidence and providing it to law enforcement to help indict and
convict multiple groups of organized international cyber criminals.

"We work to truly understand the methods adversaries use, find the clues they
might leave behind and uncover the motivations driving their attacks," said
Jaeger. "The combination of our expert skills with our innovative use of
technology is one of the most powerful in the industry. We have a proven track
record of successfully counteracting targeted attacks."
