SolarWinds demonstrates solutions during Army's Cyber Quest exercises
HERNDON, VA July 5, 2017 SolarWinds, a leading provider of powerful and affordable IT management software, today announced it has participated in Cyber Quest 2017, a multi-week exercise in cyber and electronic warfare exploration and collaboration hosted by the Army Cyber Center of Excellence (CCoE) in Fort Gordon, Georgia. SolarWinds’ participation included on-site demonstrations of its network and systems monitoring, IT security, and database management products through live, virtual, or constructed scenarios similar to those experienced by the warfighter.
This year’s annual Army Cyber Quest exercise was held between June 5 and June 30, 2017 and assists the CCoE in identifying emerging technologies from government, industry, and academia and then assessing those technologies against associated Army-required capabilities. It aims to promote collaboration across industry partners and encourage results-oriented outcomes to help improve some of the unique challenges faced by our warfighters.
“SolarWinds shares the same goals as the Army CCoE, which is to partner government with industry leaders to ensure that the latest technologies are available to our warfighters,” said David Kimball, senior vice president, federal and national government, SolarWinds. “We’re honored to have been a part of this unique event, and for the opportunity to demonstrate how our powerful solutions can help the Army simplify its task of securing, managing, and monitoring its complex systems and networks.”
