Fortinet Signs Collaborative Research and Development Agreement with U.S. Department of Homeland Security
May 18 15
Fortinet announced that it has signed a Collaborative Research and Development Agreement (CRADA) with the Department of Homeland Security (DHS). With the CRADA in place, Fortinet can now share and gain access to new threat information in order to help improve threat detection and prevention for users of Fortinet security solutions. The CRADA will allow Fortinet to participate in the Cyber Information and Sharing and Collaboration Program (CISCP), which entails sharing cyber threat, incident, and vulnerability information in near real-time, drawing on data of observed threat activity submitted by CISCP participants. Fortinet intends to also soon participate in the following two Homeland Security programs: Enhanced Cybersecurity Services (ECS) Program: shares sensitive and classified government-vetted cyber threat information with participants, helping them protect systems from unauthorized access or data exfiltration. Cyber Resilience Review (CRR): provides assessments on an organization's operational resilience and cybersecurity capabilities. With the signing of the CRADA, Fortinet anticipates developing stronger ties with federal government agencies supporting information sharing to strengthen security. The Department of Homeland Security announced in late April that it will open an office in Silicon Valley, a move that will encourage closer connections with security-focused organizations such as Fortinet.
