Daniel also said the government has made progress in securing its networks. To help improve security at the agency level, the administration is launching the Einstein 3 Accelerated (E3A) program for civilian government organizations through the Department of Homeland Security. It is a detection system designed to sniff out more sophisticated network intrusions, allow real time or near-real time analysis by the U.S. Computer Emergency Readiness Team and inform administrators who and what is on the network, Daniel said.
Einstein 3 Accelerated (E3A)?? I wonder what makes it "Accelerated"? And there are a lot of commercial IDS products available. Does E3A compete with them? If so, perhaps a better way to promote cyber security innovation is to buy products from commercial vendors so they have the funds to to invest in new technologies.
I wonder if Einstein has improved since Richard Stiennon said "Einstein is a waste of money and a distraction"?
