Enhanced Cybersecurity Services benefits

Operationalized classified intel

ECS is the only way to operationalize sensitive and classified Government Furnished Information (GFI) in commercial and civilian environments to detect and stop advanced persistent threats capable of bypassing your existing security technology stack.

Early warning

DHS CISA shares timely, actionable, and vetted GFI with qualified CSPs. ECS provides early warning of emerging threats. Indicators appear on average 6 months before they show up in premium commercial threat feeds.

Data privacy

Viasat ECS leverages our Trusted Cyber Sensor (TCS) — a unique NSA-certified device that is installed within your network to inspect traffic for malicious activity. Data privacy and confidentiality is protectied, vs. solutions that require sending data to a third-party. 

Low integration effort

Viasat ECS with TCS is monitored, managed, maintained, and configured exclusively by our world class Viasat Cybersecurity Operations Center, giving you additional time and resources to meet your other business needs.

Internal visibility

Viasat ECS with TCS detects attacks inside your network such as ones that enter your supply chain and are hiding in plain sight, in addition to ingress and egress activity, and provides additional visibility to your internal networks.

How it works

  1. Viasat strategically places Trusted Cyber Sensor(s) in your network.

  2. Viasat maintains the sensors and monitors the network and alerts you when an event is detected.

  3. Viasat will recommend a mitigation course of action based on severity, type of event, and asset criticality.
