MarkLogic Corporation, the leading Enterprise NoSQL database platform company, announced the availability of the MarkLogic® Enterprise NoSQL database on Amazon Web Services (AWS) GovCloud (US). AWS GovCloud (US) is designed to allow U.S. government agencies and contractors to move more sensitive workloads into the cloud by addressing their specific regulatory and compliance requirements. AWS GovCloud (US) meets these stringent FedRAMP requirements and has received Provisional Authorization from the Department of Defense’s Cloud Security Model (CSM). MarkLogic Enterprise NoSQL database platform on AWS GovCloud (US), will allow U.S. government agencies and contractors to easily move to a cloud environment, set up short-term cloud deployments, or adopt a hybrid infrastructure that includes AWS GovCloud (US). The MarkLogic platform can span all strategies, easily scaling up or down, without downtime and with full transactional consistency to ease the migration of applications and workloads across all cloud infrastructures.
“Government agencies are migrating to the cloud and they are discovering that today’s traditional database solutions are not agile enough to manage and integrate complex heterogeneous data formats that are required for production applications that government agencies are developing and using,” said Kevin Shelly, vice president of public sector, MarkLogic. “These customers also realize they cannot compromise on security and enterprise capabilities like ACID transactions, real-time indexing, high availability and disaster recovery. MarkLogic is the only enterprise-class NoSQL database platform that is engineered to harness the benefits of AWS GovCloud (US).” Currently, more than 425 of the world’s largest companies, including government agencies, financial institutions, ISV’s and publishers rely on MarkLogic to turn all their data into valuable and actionable information.

17 Jun 14. New ThalesRaytheon System Monitors Air-Traffic Radar for Signs of Hacking. In response to the growing range of cyber attacks on critical infrastructure, Thales and Raytheon have launched a product that alerts customers to disruptive hacking of air-traffic radars. Given its show launch at Eurosatory here, Cybair Picture checks for anomalies in radar data that could indicate cyber attacks or electronic attacks. Created by Thales and Raytheon’s joint venture ThalesRaytheon Systems, Cybair Picture will spot telltale signs of hacking such as planes flying beyond the normal range of a radar or remaining visible to the radar while flying behind a mountain. Cross checking then allows the user to see which radar in a network is reporting false data and is therefore infected. The system was acquired by the French military this year and is due to go operational in 2015, said Cecilia Aguero, an engineer with Thales’ AirC4I business unit. The system uses individual monitoring units dubbed the RadBox by Thales, launched last year, which operate together to form the Cybair Picture package. “We are the only company offering this type of product,” she said. Aguero said a reported example of a cyber attack on an air defense radar network was Operation Orchard in 2007, when Israel allegedly disrupted Syria’s radar network to allow aircraft to fly into Syria to bomb a planned nuclear site. Aguero said a product to spot the consequences of hacking was necessary
