Friday, 08 November, 2013
The Social Security Administration (SSA) has recently awarded Technology Specialists, Inc. (TSI), a leader in government IT solutions, a $1.18 million contract to provide a session and packet capture solution. The solution is to be used as an Agency security monitoring platform and will enable the Agency to analyze user and system sessions in an effort to better protect network services available to its users.

“In today’s environment IT security and information assurance is critical for every government agency and especially an agency like the Social Security Administration (SSA). TSI is very pleased to be working with the SSA to provide them with a security monitoring platform,” stated TSI’s President, Lee White.

TSI’s session and packet capture solution will support the SSA enterprise with a commercial off-the-shelf (COTS), all-inclusive, full solution with requisite storage capabilities to support the Agency in enforcement of Agency policies and Trusted Internet Connection initiatives. The solution provides many benefits including forensic-oriented efforts by allowing session replay, geographical user interface accessibility of raw data flows, and configurable alerting of pertinent violations to security and use policies.

In meeting the SSA’s goals and objectives, TSI carefully assessed both the requirements and the characteristics of the solution and services required, and have tailored and incorporated techniques which have proven successful elsewhere. TSI will design, implement and configure the hardware and software for the packet and session network infrastructure solutions in three phases to provide the ongoing operations and management support for the system.
