Enlighten IT Consulting (EITC) offers a portfolio of advanced cyber capabilities that includes the Big Data Platform (BDP), a cloud-based platform developed and deployed for the Defense Information Systems Agency (DISA). BDP, as well as a suite of analytics and other capabilities, help protect and defend the Department of Defense Information Networks (DoDIN). Through its innovative development and engineering, EITC has changed the way DISA and mission partners protect cyber networks.
BDP is an open source solution that supports the data ingest, correlation, and visualization infrastructure. Its common architecture can be installed across hundreds of servers in several hours. BDP enables data, visualizations, and analytics from the Cyber Situational Awareness Analytical Capabilities (CSAAC) to be shared with mission partners that includes DoD cyber operators in other organizations, enterprise service users, cyber mission forces/teams, and other federal agencies.
The BDP environment is comprised of both open source and unclassified components, and also leverages technology transfer from other entities. The open-source, shared infrastructure model provides the DoD with an increased return on investment, and significantly improves the time to market or amount time it takes to make capabilities available to end users.
In support of PEO EIS, MacB’s Enlighten IT Group (EITG) has created a variety of user-driven applications to support mission use cases that are powered by advanced machine learning algorithms. EITG has developed dozens of visualization tools to run on the Big Data Platform (BDP), summarizing and providing user access to the analytic results. These tools provide users with visual representations of the relationships between and among data.
The applications make it easy for users to manipulate and drill down into the data for deep analysis, and any dataset can be transformed, and then dynamically counted, binned, filtered, and plotted into fundamental aggregation displays that include bar charts, top-N lists, and maps.
The Big Data Platform (BDP) is currently used by mission partners across the Department of Defense (DoD), including U.S. Army Command. The BDP can ingest and store multiple petabytes of cyber data and retrieve millions of data records per second, which helps analysts base their critical decisions on a richer and broader set of information. To help analysts sort through all of the data generated within the DoD, EITC developed tools to create smaller, more targeted datasets and then transformed the data into charts and graphs to help Cyber Command analysts identify suspicious activity that might not be identified elsewhere.
A variety of analytics run on the BDP, which is currently utilized by U.S. Cyber Command, with the same goal: to identify suspicious and/or malicious activity and prevent full-blown cyberattacks. Enlighten’s data analytics in the BDP has led to a significant increase in the number of blocked suspicious actors, and a quicker response to cyber threats. In the past, it took an DoD analysts eight days to identify, analyze and mitigate a malicious cyber threat. Today, using analytics on the BDP, it takes less than 24 hours.
