Cloud Analytic Platform

Cloud Analytic Platform

Northrop Grumman's Cloud Analytic Platform (CAP) is a big data appliance, built on open-source software and designed to efficiently run mission-critical, high-volume cyber analytics. Expandable from its 2.5 TB RAM, 260 TB, half-rack baseline system, CAP features best-in class ingest and analytic speed and a robust interface to monitor and optimise performance of hardware and analytic services, jobs and algorithms. Using CAP's open architecture, customers can quickly add their own mission analytics and workflows.

Cyber Resilience

Cyber Resilience

It is impossible to guarantee a system will never experience failure or compromise, but we must ensure that even these compromised systems can finish their missions. Northrop Grumman's cyber resilience capabilities serve as contingencies for compromised networks and platforms to sustain basic functionality or restore to an optimal state. These capabilities include fractionated, morphable and reconstituting architectures, as well as dynamic rollback to an uncompromised state.


Cyber Situational Awareness

This suite is a set of web-based tools developed for rapidly visualising, sharing and understanding cyber datasets. User-defined maps of IP-space visually correlate cyber events and datasets to enhance understanding of critical behaviour on global and enterprise-scale networks. Additionally, a unique modular, analytics framework makes 'big data' analytic techniques available to a broad user base.



SPECTRE is a fly-away, man-portable kit with COTS and open source incident response, malware detection, forensics, and cyber hunt tools to support collection, detection, analysis, and reporting of cyber events. Modular and scalable, SPECTRE is designed to provide its own communications and operate securely in a compromised environment.
