Army awards cyber maneuvering contract

The Army has awarded a contract for cyber maneuvering technology so that network administrators can stay a few steps ahead of hackers. It is paying Massachusetts-based Raytheon more than $3 million to develop the technology.

The company said it will dynamically modify parts of the Army’s networks, hosts and applications in a way that potential attackers can’t detect or predict.

But network administrators will be able to manage it. The company says it is a proactive approach to defending computer networks.
