NATO enters final phase of project to refresh cyber security technology

The NCI Agency announced earlier this year that experts had successfully collaborated with industry partners to upgrade the central management of two cyber security systems: the Network Intrusion Protection/Detection System (NIPS) and Full Packet Capture (FPC) system.
