Tactical Cybersecurity Solution for Military Operations
Fidelis Cybersecurity and PacStar today launched PacStar Tactical Fidelis Cybersecurity System – a fully integrated tactical cybersecurity solution with automated detection and response capabilities for protecting in-theater communications, executive communications, vehicle mount, or forward operating base deployments.
The collaboration provides the Fidelis Elevate™ platform in a compact, quick setup, rugged form factor, ideal for meeting demanding size, weight, power and reliability requirements for military tactical cyber defensive operations, including pre-positioned cyber sensors and deployable “hunt mission” kits. The system can fill gaps in tactical network cybersecurity, and address three primary DoD challenges: tactical networks frequently are poorly secured; cybersecurity technologies are too large and expensive to deploy; and there is a lack of trained cyber specialists rapidly available in the field.

The PacStar Tactical Fidelis Cybersecurity System is managed by PacStar IQ-Core Software, a “single-pane of glass” management GUI designed to assist networking specialists in conducting configuration, management and troubleshooting. Key system benefits include:
- Enhances cyber threat visibility: The system can provide visibility to remote cyber defender support organizations that currently have no visibility into real-time threats or advanced analytics necessary to support the warfighter.
- Addresses cyber skills shortage in tactical settings: The tactical operator can be overwhelmed with maintaining multiple systems, or may lack the necessary skills/experience to respond to today’s advanced cyber threats. The system simplifies incident response by automating detection and validation of alerts, determining appropriate responses, and presenting resolutions – enhancing organic cybersecurity capabilities in every combat unit.
- Enables cybersecurity at the edge: The small size, weight and power of the system make deployment at the edge of the network possible, providing real time cyber threat detection and response for networks traditionally lacking protection.
The core of PacStar Tactical Fidelis Cybersecurity System is based on a PacStar 451 module hosting analytics, management and sensor functions. Additional PacStar 451 and 455 modules may be added for sizable deployments with large, long-term, meta-data storage requirements. Supplemented with PacStar 400-Series routing and switching modules, the system can be delivered as a complete all-in-one solution.
The combination of Fidelis and PacStar technologies will provide automated detection and response to cyber threats to tactical and deployable systems. This will immediately address security gaps in the network, while improving operational efficiencies where resources are limited.
