Government Acquisitions, Inc. Launches New Hyperconverged Analytics Platform Solution

Government Acquisitions, Inc. (GAI), a leading Federal Information Technology (IT) solutions provider and small business, today announced the launch of their Hyper Converged Analytics Platform (HyperCAP) – an end-to-end data analytics solution. Integrated and optimized with best-of-breed commercial-off-the-shelf (COTS) technologies from Dell, Palo Alto Networks, Nutanix, and Splunk Inc., the HyperCAP solution enables Federal agencies to harness powerful analytics for IT and security operations.

The base of the solution infrastructure, the Dell XC Series of Web-scale Converged Appliances, powered by Nutanix, provides the underlying server and storage resources to run I/O disk intensive workloads. Designed to easily deploy, manage and incrementally scale, the infrastructure lowers the total cost of ownership for agencies. Serving as a security analytics platform, Splunk’s solutions collect, index, and analyze machine-generated data for threat correlation, security reporting, and data breach investigations. Finally, the Palo Alto Networks next-generation security platform safely enables applications and prevents threats known and unknown – protecting agencies from successful breaches at all stages of the attack life cycle.

“Over the last five years, there has been a 650 percent increase in cyberattacks on Federal agencies. We’re excited to announce a fully integrated cyber solution, thanks to the partnership of industry-leading OEMs and ISVs: Splunk, Dell, Nutanix, and Palo Alto Networks," says Jay Lambke, President, GAI. "Most customers are familiar with the hardware and software offered by each OEM. GAI pulls these best-of-breed pieces together and fully integrates them on the back-end, delivering a comprehensive solution. Agencies can implement more quickly and with significantly less risk.”

The HyperCAP solution:

  • Performs network forensics and Advanced Persistent Threat (APT) analysis
  • Identifies privileged accounts and executes compliance monitoring
  • Obtains holistic views of agency security posture and network hygiene
  • Investigates and responds to threat alerts and trends
  • Determines malware impact across agencies
  • Provides cyber forensic analysis for incident responders

"With HyperCAP, the whole process of detection to remediation is compressed into a few seconds, providing agencies with real-time situational awareness,” says Prem Jadhwani, chief technology officer, GAI. “And, the HyperCAP solution is fully integrated on the back-end. As the amount of security data ingested increases, agencies can scale efficiently and effectively.”
