CyberPoint has been awarded a fixed price contract by the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) Borders and Maritime Security Division (BMD) to participate in the Container Security Device Technology Demonstration for the US/EU Global Supply Chain Pilot Project. Akua, a subsidiary of CyberPoint, develops security solutions for customers in the logistics and supply chain markets.
The pilot is being conducted to demonstrate a Shipping Information Pipeline, which can provide a generic publish/subscribe architecture in which shippers, logistics companies, and customs agencies can produce and consume information. CyberPoint’s AKUA solution will provide tracking and breach detection data to the current Supply Chain Visibility Platform. In partnership with BMD through Sandia National Laboratories and SSC Pacific, key data and events of interest to all stakeholders will be identified, according to a statement by CyberPoint.
