Updating of security procedures and scheduling of security audits
Illustrative hardware such as edge routers and Agency servers are not provided as part of the IDPS. IDPS is an intrusion recognition and mitigation service that protects Agency networks against cyber attacks.
The contracts employ adequate and reasonable means to ensure and protect the integrity, confidentiality, and availability of Networx services, Operational Support Systems backbone infrastructure for geographically dispersed Agency locations.
In addition, the service proactively monitors the Agency network on a 24X7 basis for indications of compromise such as intrusions, anomalies, malicious activities, and network misuse.
IDPS also performs anomaly detection to identify atypical traffic trends and unusual behaviors that may indicate a potential attack.
PBIP-VPNS is similar to FTS2001 services such as Private IP (PIP), Multiprotocol Label Switching (MPLS), and Very high performance Backbone Network Service (VBNS).
Virtual paths called "tunnels" are established within the network.
