Operating, securing and defending the Department of Defense Information Network (DoDIN) network and the data traversing through it is inherently a governmental function for the Armed Forces. To accomplish this, DoD has a skilled workforce, empowered with advanced cyber capabilities, which seeks to detect, mitigate and attribute hostile cyber activity within their networks.

While much of DoD operates within secured boundaries, there will always be points of intersection with the publicly accessible Internet. There are also connections to other departments and agencies, coalition allies and many other private sector entities. This connectivity with partners and the Internet complicates both network security and technology enabled operations. RiskIQ helps mitigate these types of risks. RiskIQ provides a rich and robust capability to accurately identify and monitor points of intersection with other networks, and also provides a capability to identify the many components of adversary infrastructure on the Internet. RiskIQ reduces Risk.
